According to a new report, Samsung is going to bring a handful of new features to the Galaxy S8’s S Health app. It appears that the company has lined up some great new features for its fitness app as it seeks to make it stand out from the competition, and there’s a lot of competition because there are certainly more than few fitness-focused apps out there. One of the new features might be the ability to make doctor appointments from right within the app.
Samsung is reportedly working with partners like WebMD and Amwell to deeply integrate their services in S Health. This will enable users to search for symptoms, drugs and diseases as well as schedule an appointment with a doctor.
Users will apparently be able to get video appointments with certified doctors around the clock and the app may also display a list of pharmacy stores near their location.
It’s also mentioned in the report that users will be able to pay the doctor’s fee from inside the app using a credit card or through medical insurance. They will be able to rate the doctor as well to provide feedback about their consultation.
Samsung is likely going to make these features limited to users in the United States. Expect it to introduce the new S Health application alongside the Galaxy S8 in several weeks.
