- Now pixels will be able to know heart and respiratory rate from smartphone
- Google brought new feature to improve the health of users
- Rollout for all Pixel devices by the end of this month
Google It keeps bringing new features to improve the experience of its users. In this series, the company has now announced a new heart rate and respiratory monitor in the Google Fit app of Pixel smartphones. This feature will be rolled out to all users by the end of this month. However, the company has not currently given any information about the date of rollout of this feature.
This is how the heart and respiratory rate are tracked.
The special thing is that both these features coming for Google Pixel devices will work with the help of smartphone camera. To monitor the user’s heart rate, it will track changes in the color of the blood passing through the fingertips. On the other hand, the Respiratory Monitor will track the rise and fall of the user’s chest.
A health product manager of the company said that doctors also track the respiratory rate of a patient from chest up and down while breathing. Google’s Respiratory Monitor also uses the same method.
Can not guess medical condition
The company said that this feature is being rolled out so that with the help of this, users can track their oval health. Along with this, the company also said that these two monitors cannot get a sense of medical condition.
Samsung devices have such a feature
The heart rate monitor for Google Pixel phones works much like the features found in some devices like Samsung’s Galaxy S10. However, Samsung has removed this feature from the Galaxy S10e, Galaxy S20 series, and smartphones launched after that.
