What are the latest updates in the Dexcom G6 App?
We continue to release app updates to improve your Dexcom app experience!
Recently, we released a Dexcom G6 app update that includes bug fixes to improve your app experience and several new enhancements highlighted below. Install the app update (G6 v1.10.0) from the app store to get the newest version of the Dexcom G6 app!
The Dexcom G6 app is now available in Spanish in the US for customers to have another preferred language option. The app will switch to Spanish when your phone language setting is set to Spanish.
We improved the Transmitter notification messaging to be clearer on what to do when you get Transmitter status notifications. For example, we added more messaging to Transmitter expiring notifications. We also added a Transmitter and Sensor Expired notification so you know when your Transmitter has expired.
New Android Bluetooth permission (Android 12 only)
Android 12 gives app developers a new Bluetooth permission option that doesn’t require asking for location permission. We listened to your feedback about the Location Permission, and replaced the existing Bluetooth permission with this new one for customers running the app on Android 12 and above.
If you’re using the Dexcom G6 app on Android 11 or below, you’ll still see the existing Bluetooth permission that requires asking for Location Permission. We understand you may be concerned about granting this permission, but Dexcom does not use this permission to track your location.
iOS Critical Alerts
We adopted Apple’s Critical Alerts feature, which allows the Dexcom G6 app to continue to sound for important alerts, like Urgent Low, when your phone is in Mute / Do Not Disturb.
Importantly, the way the Dexcom G6 app overrides your phone Mute / Do Not Disturb has changed, but the existing Dexcom G6 app alert behavior is not changing. You can still customize your alerts by going into Settings > Alerts. View iOS Critical Alerts FAQ.
