Google is adding a couple of new features in its Digital Wellbeing app that will help you track your sleep better. These features are not live yet but were found by XDA Developers by tearing down the beta APK version 1.0.312292882. As it goes with every other unreleased feature in beta version, these too can change by the time they are rolled out to end users.

First up is the new sleep habit tracking feature that asks for permission to access the clock and Digital Wellbeing apps. As mentioned in the report, these can easily track the motion and light sensor activity and time zone history. Using the data, it can track if one uses the device in the middle of the night or how much they use it before going to the bed. These are also said to determine the quality of sleep that you are getting, in a more precise manner. However, all this data is said to be deleted once the user decides to switch off this feature.

Some other unreleased features found in the beta version are the ability to take down notes before bed and show them up right when they wake up, use time tracking between profiles and integration for Digital Wellbeing with third party apps.

It is not for sure when these features will be coming to users. However, it will definitely be important for those who like to keep a track of how much time they spend on their smartphones.

Meanwhile, Google has started rolling out the Covid-19 exposure notification technology to public health agencies. Google has built the notification technology in collaboration with Apple and the technology works for both Android and iOS users.
