You may know the old bedroom argument of who snores the most all too well. Sleep Cycle’s ‘Who’s Snoring?’ helps users settle the score for good and get an even more accurate snore analysis while sharing a bedroom.

What is “Who’s Snoring?”

Sleep Cycle’s feature ‘Who’s Snoring?’ can tell if it’s you or your partner snoring. With a bit of input from you as a user and a little bit of time for the machine learning algorithm to ‘get to know you’, you will know for a fact the snores that belong to you and those that belong to your partner. This sets it apart from other snore-detection apps on the market. The result is a more accurate sleep analysis and clear insights into the user’s snore patterns for those sharing a bedroom.

How “Who’s Snoring?” works

The Sleep Cycle app already records your snoring, tells you when and for how long you were snoring, and saves a few samples for you to listen to. ‘Who’s Snoring?’ is a clever addition using machine learning to tell multiple snores apart in a shared bedroom.

With audio shared by .5 M Sleep Cycle users in 150 countries, we’ve trained a model to recognize and separate individual snores using labeled examples, thanks to a technique called few-shot learning. The more you train the model, by labeling the snores it records as yours or your bedroom partner, the better it gets. This complex, innovative solution is patented, offering users a clearer view of their sleep health with great accuracy. And to be clear, user privacy is ensured and no audio data leaves the phone without explicit consent. 

Identifying who is snoring can improve your sleep and health

Because snoring affects about 40% of adults and is linked to obstructive sleep apnea and health risks, identifying and addressing snoring can significantly improve general sleep quality, overall well-being, and long-term health. 

  • Accurate sleep analysis: ‘Who’s Snoring?’  ensures that external snores don’t interfere with your sleep statistics, providing a more precise analysis of your sleep quality.
  • Targeted action: This clarity empowers users to take targeted actions suchs as lifestyle changes to improve sleep, leading to deeper and more restorative rest.
  • Personalized insights: Understanding individual sleep health and patterns makes personalized sleep improvements easier.
  • Better sleep for couples: Did you know that around a third of American couples opt for a ‘sleep divorce’ for better rest alone?  This shows how managing sleep disruptions such as snoring is key for deep, restorative sleep. 

“Who’s Snoring?” takes snoring apps to the next level

The popularity of at-home snoring detection apps stems from improvements in sound and motion detection technologies within smartphones, leading to enhanced accuracy in identifying snoring patterns.

It’s essential to note that while these apps offer valuable insights into snore patterns and their impact on sleep quality, they are not substitutes for full-night polygraphic measurements used in professional sleep clinics.

Sleep Cycle’s ‘Who’s Snoring?’ feature takes snoring detection technology to new heights with the ability to detect multiple snorers in the same room, something unique to Sleep Cycle among snore tracking apps. This innovation allows users to maintain their usual sleep arrangements with partners or family members while receiving accurate snore analysis.

Snoring is caused by the upper airways being obstructed. Sleeping on the back often causes the soft tissue in the back of the throat to collapse and obscure the air passage. Lifestyle habits can easily affect snoring, and so can underlying health issues which is why it is helpful to track daytime habits, and nighttime sleep patterns for comprehensive insights.

Likely so. Snoring easily disrupts deep sleep because it’s a symptom of airways being obstructed. Even regular to moderate snoring can decrease health, so monitoring snoring patterns is important.
