About Sharecare’s voice analysis technology

Available to the general public via the Sharecare Beta smartphone app on Android, Sharecare’s proprietary voice analysis technology was built to help people improve self-awareness, personal relationships, well-being and, ultimately, their overall health. The Sharecare app analyzes stress indicators present in voice, called fractal patterns. The output of that analysis is a visual representation of the intensity and stress type detected, ranging from a calm “green” to a very intense “red” and shades in between, plus a short description of one’s mindset while they’re talking.
