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.
