Google's Fitbit app has introduced snoring and noise detection to owners of the Sense and Versa 3 smartwatches.

The company first released a beta snoring detection app for the Versa 2 smartwatch, which was later detected in May in the Fitbit 3.42 update code.

When enabled, this feature uses the microphone on some of the company's smartwatches to monitor nighttime noise. In addition to what surrounds you, this also includes snoring.

To activate this feature, Sense and Versa 3 smartwatch users who have subscribed to Fitbit Premium can go to the standby page in the Fitbit app.

There should be a "check for snoring" option, as well as some additional information about how the feature works.

Screen display: When you're sleeping, the watch's microphone can monitor the sounds made by you or those around you, including snoring.

The company says it monitors the size or volume of your circumference and snoring events.

All snoring report data will be displayed in your morning report. On the privacy side, the company also said that users can turn off the feature and remove snoring and noise data.

As usual, this feature is not used to diagnose or treat any medical condition. This feature also appears to drain the battery. The company recommends that you have at least 40% of battery power before activating.

And you have to keep in mind that this option may not appear immediately because this feature has just been launched. It is unclear if Versa 2 owners can use it.

This feature requires a smartwatch with a built-in microphone, which is available on Versa 2, and the first beta app is also compatible with the device. However, since the device is not the latest generation, the company may try to get customers to upgrade.

Fitbit isn't the only smartwatch manufacturer that snores. Samsung also introduced this feature in the recently launched Galaxy Watch 4 and Watch 4 Classic.

However, Samsung's features are a little different. The snoring detection function is supported by Sleep Cycle, and the user must also put the microphone on his head to sleep. It also allows you to listen to snoring audio clips.

Fitbit was one of the first companies to introduce deep sleep analysis and still has one of the best portable sleep tracking platforms out there.

The company is also working to identify long-term sleep apnea. Despite the fact that we haven't seen any recent updates about it.
