Back in 2014, Google and Apple launched health and fitness platforms for their respective mobile operating systems. While Apple’s HealthKit API and Health app took off, eventually becoming key to the success of the Apple Watch, the Google Fit app failed to make as big of an impact, and faded into relative obscurity.
Unsurprisingly, Google isn’t satisfied with that result, which is why the company is now reportedly working on a new health and fitness AI assistant called Google Coach. According to Android Police, Google Coach is more than just an exercise tracker, urging you to stay active throughout the day. Using the data that Google collects about your health, the assistant will recommend workouts, track your progress and give you ideas about what to do next.
