In order to expand into healthcare technology, Google’s Nest unit is all set to come up with a feature that tracks sleep patterns, offering a potential new revenue stream.
The search engine giant launched the second-generation model of its Nest Hub smart display in a blog post published on Tuesday, and now it comes with a function called Sleep Sensing that monitors the breathing and movement of a person, who is sleeping next to the screen. This doesn’t require any wearing of device or installation of camera.
Sleep Sensing will be available as a free preview until next year said Ashton Udall, a senior product manager at Google Nest. This clearly indicates that the Sundar Pichai-led company will be charging for this service in future.
Google on Tuesday addressed the privacy implications of Nest’s new sleep-sensing feature and said that this system is dependant on a low-energy radar technology called Soli in order to track, though it can be disabled.
Google also said that the users will be able to review and delete their sleep data at any given time, and clearly stressed that the information isn’t used for personalised ads.
