Wearable technology company Fitbit has announced a new clause that requires users to switch to a Google account “sometime” in 2023.
“In 2023, we plan to launch Google accounts on Fitbit, which will enable use of Fitbit with a Google account,” the Google-owned fitness devices maker said.
The switch will not go live for all users in 2023. Rather, support for Fitbit accounts is expected to continue until at least the beginning of 2025, after which a Google account will be mandatory for using the devices.
The deeper integration also means that a Google account will be compulsory to sign up for Fitbit and activate new features, including those that incorporate Google products and services such as Google Assistant.
