Currently, health monitoring features are a major draw for users, especially in the smartwatch market. But thanks to Google, this trend will now be transposed to smartphones.
From next week, Pixel smartphones will receive new potential for monitoring your health. The vehicle for this feat will be the camera of the equipment.
Pixel smartphones will be able to measure your heartbeat through the camera
The secret of this new feature will be in the camera of the Pixel smartphones. This is to say that all the news will be released for equipment compatible with a simple software update.
One of the main novelties will be the possibility of assessing your heartbeat. To do this, you will have to place your finger over the smartphone’s cameras so that they can capture a reading.
The results will be transferred to the Google Fit application, where you will be able to save all readings for a better understanding of your heart patterns. In fact, it is by this means that you will grant the necessary permissions for the proper functioning of this technology.
Additionally, you can use your Google PIxel camera to measure your breathing rate. In this case, you will have to place the equipment on any base so that your camera can shoot you from the back up.
The camera will thus be able to analyze how many times your chest expands and collects with the inflow and outflow of oxygen. For a good reading of this parameter, it is advisable to remove hats and masks.
These features are, for now, exclusive to Google Pixel
The two novelties described above will arrive, for now, exclusively to Google Pixel 3 smartphones and above. If you have one of these devices, the respective update will be available next Monday.
Since everything will be enabled with a software update, there is a strong possibility that other Android devices will be just as lucky. This could just be the beginning of a new era in which a smartphone camera can serve more than just taking pictures or recording video.
