In recent months, Google has been busy in introducing different products. Few weeks earlier, the company revealed its ‘Jobs’ website to make it easier for employers and employees to look for jobs or to hire someone. While it remains to be seen if the new product increases ease of job hunting, Google for a long time has its own Google Fit similar to Apple’s ‘HealthKit’ to enable users to keep track of their biometrics. The search engine giant’s interest in the medical is clear as the company reportedly acquired a health monitoring startup.

According to a recent report from GeekWire, Google has acquired a health monitoring startup called Senosis Health. The startup focuses on bringing medical technologies to smartphone users. In addition to providing health status, users can diagnose pulmonary function, hemoglobin counts etc. directly from their smartphones.

However, at the moment, it is unclear how Google is planning on using access to the new technologies. As the company moving forward with its attention to providing more health related products in future to android users, chances are we will see something that falls in these categories in the coming months.
