Google and Apple announced a joint effort to enable the use of Bluetooth technology in order to assist the governments and local authorities in containing the COVID-19 spread.
- Both the tech giants would launch a comprehensive solution, including APIs or application programming interfaces and operating system-level technology, which would further enable the contact tracing, which has been identified as a valuable tool to help contain the covid-19 spread by public health officials; and,
- The plan would be implemented in two steps, i.e., in May and the following months. In May, both companies would release APIs that enable interoperability between Android and iOS devices using apps from public health authorities;
- Over the following months, Apple and Google would work to further enable a broader Bluetooth-based contact tracing platform, which would be a more robust solution than an API by bringing more people into the participation net;
