Google revealed that the beta version of its Health Connect app is now accessible through the Play Store. To centralise access to health and fitness data from various eligible apps, Health Connect was created. More than ten health and fitness apps, including MyFitnessPal, Oura, and Peloton, are launching integrations with Health Connect right now.
The app provides users with centralised privacy controls while syncing health and fitness data from eligible platforms and allowing other 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 users to unlock this data for use in other apps.
