Apple and Google to build Bluetooth-based contact tracing platform
Apple and Google have announced a joint effort to use Bluetooth technology to help reduce the spread of the coronavirus through a contact tracing platform.
In a two-part roll-out, the technology giants will release application programming interfaces (APIs) next month that will enable interoperability between Android and iOS devices using apps from public health authorities. These will be available for download via the respective app stores and only public health authorities will be allowed to use them.
