Fitbit Working to Add Google Assistant Support

Fitbit is reportedly working on bringing Google Assistant support to its wearable lineup. 

9to5Google has decompiled the latest version of the Fitbit Android app on Google Play store, and the code suggests that the company is preparing to integrate Google Assistant support.

The code inside the app has strings to activate Assistant in a similar manner as that of Alexa.

Fitbit's Versa 2 already supports Amazon's Alexa integration, and is equipped with a microphone as well for registering voice commands. 

The code also reveals a trio of XML files that clearly reference at how Google Assistant will be introduced, including its boarding on to the device and its teaser.

Google announced to buy Fitbit for $2.1 billion in November last year. However, the deal has been pending regulatory approval ever since, and an official announcement hasn't been made yet.
