Has anyone ever told you that you snore, even though you adamantly refuse to believe it? Now you can find out for sure. The Sleep Cycle app had added a new feature to their Android app – one that helps track snoring and the sleep effects it has on people.
If you’ve never heard of Sleep Cycle, it’s a super handy app that allows people to learn about their quality of sleep. One of its main features is helping people to wake up at a time when there’s a greater probability that they’ll feel rejuvenated and energetic, rather than sleepy and ready to press the snooze button.
So how exactly does it work?
Users first put their phones on their bed. Then the sleep app measures the sound of snores and pairs it with its accelerometer data. They use that info to find correlations between your snoring and your movement to determine just how restless it’s making you.
And if you’re not sure whether or not you snore, the app will help you figure it out. You can actually listen to yourself snoring, and see how many minutes you snored for!
This app isn’t just perfect for self-proclaimed snorers. It’s also perfect for spouses who swear up and down that their partners snore, and want hard proof!
But if you’ve got an iPhone or are hoping to buy one of the new Apple smartphones, you’ll have to invest in a different kind of sleep tracker. The app is only available to Android users.
