Google Assistant Takes Care of Your Health via Smart Displays

You’ve got to admire the huge effort of the software engineers from Google when it comes to their virtual assistant. In almost five years since its launch, Google Assistant has improved many Android users’ lives and provided them with an extra level of comfort while they play with their favourite devices.

Google Assistant became even better recently, as 9to5Google reveals that the giant from Mountain View added a silent update to its app for showing health and fitness data to the user on small displays. And we all know that working out regularly represents a great and easy way of living a healthy life.

Don’t miss the “Wellness” section

The newly added ‘Wellness’ section from the Google Assistant app’s settings menu replaces the ‘Sleep’ section. The new section also integrates the sleep part and Fitbit.

Google briefly explains:

Allow your Assistant to proactively show your information on your display devices from your connected health and fitness devices and services, like your exercise, nutrition, sleep, or wellness data.

The new feature will be managing data regarding sleep, working out, and nutrition gathered from fitness devices. The compatible devices are those equipped with Google Assistant smart displays, such as Nest Hub, the Nest Hub Max, as well as the Lenovo Smart Clock.

The new feature is currently rolling out to Android users, which means that it should be only a matter of time until you’ll see it available on your device. We can also expect that Google will improve the ‘Wellness’ section in the near future.

We’re looking forward with excitement to see what Google will bring new for the not so distant future. There are about four billion people on the planet currently using services offered by Google.
