How Google is Making Life Safer for the Hard of Hearing

One of the most impressive developments in hearing aid technology is its ability to sync with a range of smartphones. However, Google has just taken this one step further.

They’re now offering an accessibility feature that notifies wearers when there are sounds nearby that might need their attention.

So if your Google smartphone hears the sounds of running water, a dog barking, or someone knocking on your door, it will alert you with a noise, vibration, or camera flash.

The software can also be linked to one of the company’s smartwatches.

As a statement from Google explained, the feature is “designed for the estimated 466 million people in the world with hearing loss.”

We think it’s fantastic that a company like Google has taken these steps to assist the hard of hearing.
