Android phones just got a life-saving update for the Personal Safety app

Select Android phones will be receiving a literal life-saving update allowing users to instantly share critical medical information with first responders. 

The feature will be available on the Personal Safety app, and the way it works, according to developer RapidSOS, is the software will send over the information whenever a call is placed to a “supported emergency number – like 911.” Or if they prefer, people can choose to send everything via text message. What that batch of data houses is totally up to you, but it can include your name, allergies that you have, pre-existing conditions, emergency contacts, what kind of medication you’re on, and more.
