How to Use Google Health Connect

The Health Connect app was unveiled on Monday by American technology giant Google. The software, which is geared toward fitness and health aficionados, enables users to connect several fitness and workout apps to obtain holistic health insights on a single app. The beta version of Google Health Connect, which is now undergoing testing, may be downloaded from the Google Play store. In this article we will try to teach you how to Use Google Health Connect.

To centralise access to health and fitness data from many qualified apps, Health Connect was created. More than ten health and fitness apps, including MyFitnessPal, Oura, and Peloton, are introducing integrations with Health Connect right now.

The app provides users with centralised privacy controls while syncing health and fitness data from qualifying platforms and allowing other android apps to access this data with their permission. In the past, data sharing between apps required multiple API connections, which restricted developers’ ability to share data and made it challenging for consumers to unlock this data for use in other apps.
