Google Fit is among the best health and activity tracking apps available currently, providing you with real-time stats for all your workouts and allowing you to keep track of your daily progress. To help people stay healthy and active during the coronavirus pandemic, Google Fit is now joining hands with YouTube to bring hundreds of wellbeing, meditation, and fitness videos as part of the Stay Fit #WithMe campaign.
Google says it hopes to encourage users to hit the AHA and WHO's recommended weekly physical activity goals by incorporating the Stay Fit #WithMe content into their fitness plans. Users will be able to browse and view curated mental wellness, meditation, yoga, and dance playlists within the Google Fit app.
Google says the new curated #WithMe YouTube videos and playlists will start showing up in the Google Fit app on both Android and iOS this week. However, the content will not be accessible by users in regions where YouTube playlists aren't available.
