The tech giant acquired Sound Life Sciences, a small University of Washington spinout that developed an app to monitor breathing, GeekWire has learned.

Gollakota founded the company in 2018. Sound Life Sciences’ app monitored breathing using sonar technology to detect movement. The app had the potential to ease the diagnosis of sleep apnea, which traditionally involves an overnight stay at a sleep disorder center. It could also enable people with conditions such as asthma or congestive heart failure to keep track of their respiratory rate.
