We all want to stop the spread of the coronavirus and end the
pandemic crisis. Contact-tracing is one way to do this, and Google and Apple are working on a cross-platform contact-tracing system for iPhones and Android
smartphones that will be available via official health apps.
This system has not yet rolled out. Google and Apple have only published an application programming interface (API) for it, which public health organizations can use to build apps. But Google and Apple this week provided details on what contact tracing might look like inside the health apps and at the OS level on iOS and Android. Here’s what to expect.
Once the contact-tracing system is live, make sure Bluetooth is enabled, update your mobile operating system, and opt in.
