The Pixel 7 will have a snoring and coughing detection feature

On a daily bedtime summary screen, the Pixel shows you how long you snored and how many times you coughed while sleeping. Missing Attachment “With your permission, digital well-being can help you understand the quality of sleep by analyzing the audio from coughs and snores during the night. The processing happens right on your Pixel 7,” an exec said during the presentation. App researcher Mishaal Rahman had earlier posted the setup screen for this feature late last month, ahead the official Pixel launch. The screen notes that the feature uses Pixel 7’s microphone without recording or sharing data with anyone. According to a Google support page, you can enable this feature from the Bedtime section of the clock app, and check your data under that section as well. An alternative way to access this data is to go to Settings > Digital Wellbeing and parental controls > Show cough & snore activity. It’s not clear if the feature will be available out of the box or will be rolled out as an update later. We have reached out to Google to know more, and we’ll update the story if we hear back. google-fall-2022-banner-11 The Pixel 7 will have a snoring and coughing detection feature by Ivan Mehta originally published on TechCrunch
