New Delhi: Tech giant Google is working on two built-in snore and cough detection features that will help detect whether users snore or cough during sleep. The tech giant is reportedly working on these features for Pixel and Android, 9To5Google reported. Tech website spotted lines of code in the installation file of the Google Health Study app. This revealed that the company is conducting a study called Sleep Audio Collection which is available only to Google employees.
“You must be a full-time Googler with an Android phone to participate in this study,” the report said.
“The environmental conditions required for this study should not have more than one adult sleeper in the same room that does not work for a competing company,” it added.
Google explained that its “health sensing team is actively working to bring an advanced suite of sensing capabilities and algorithms to Android devices to provide users with meaningful insights into their sleep”.

These “cough and snoring algorithms” will translate into a “bedside monitoring” feature on Android devices, which works in a “privacy-protecting, on-device” manner to monitor acinocutaneous cough and snoring. New cyber security rules to make it harder to do business in India, say global tech bodies
