Google’s 7-year-old fitness app doubled its download numbers in the past couple of years and reached a new milestone of 100 million installs.
Google Fit is a health-tracking platform developed by Google for Android, Wear OS, and iOS. It is a single set of APIs that blends data from multiple apps and devices and includes tracking workouts, steps, and respiratory and heart rates via wearables.
In a full relaunch of its Fit app back in 2018, Google updated started allowing more data collection, including step tracking, heart rate monitoring, and workouts. Furthermore, the design language for the app is in line with its other applications.
In doing so, the app lost some of its features, but Google has since then brought most of them back and added new ones.
Partly due to these efforts, Google can now celebrate its 100-million-downloads milestone on the Google Play Store, doubling its numbers in the past two years alone, seven years after its release.
Among the most useful features, Google added to the app in the years is to allow heart-rate measurements and respiratory rates using nothing but a Pixel phone’s camera. More recently, in July 2021, Google also introduced an improved organization of fitness stats within the app.
Currently, Google syncs stats from Fitbit, the consumer electronics company the giant recently acquired, over to Fit.
