Google plans to add cough, snore detection to devices 

Google is in the process of testing a cough and snore detecting technology that might be integrated into Androids and Pixels, 9to5google reported May 26. 

Google said its cough and snore algorithms will translate into a sleep monitoring system that will help detect a user's coughs and snores throughout the night. It is unknown whether if successful the features will be rolled out onto phones or in which app or capacity they will appear. 

The company said, "The Health Sensing team is actively working to bring an advanced suite of sensing capabilities and algorithms to Android devices with the goal of providing users with meaningful insight into their sleep."
