Google Assistant To Soon Gain Access To Sleep & Fitness Data

Google Assistant has received several new features over the last few months. According to 9to5google, the recent APK teardown of the Google Assistant beta app with version 11.31 revealed a couple of interesting new features. Soon, Google Assistant can be integrated with health and fitness apps like Fitbit to answer questions related to fitness and sleep.

Once the feature goes live, users can ask Google Assistant for their fitness and sleep data.

Apple, Amazon and Google will emerge as winners: Gene Munster

Long-time tech analyst Gene Munster believes big tech is on the cusp of a major shift: It’s becoming a stock pickers’ market.

The Loup Ventures founder and managing partner expects FAANG stocks, otherwise known as Facebook, Apple, Amazon, Netflix and Google, will fail to collectively rally like they did during most of 2020’s record run.

“There’s going to be a fracturing of the performance within FAANG,” Munster told CNBC’s “Trading Nation” on Tuesday. “Think of that group of haves being Apple, Amazon and Google, and the have nots being Netflix and Facebook.”

Munster sees the split coming down to adapting to the coronavirus — as well as evolving and thriving in a post-pandemic world.
