How does Nest hub distinguishes between 2 people sleeping in same room? To provide accurate sleep tracking

The short answer is it doesn't. The sleep calibration step on your Nest Hub (2nd gen) detects how far away you are when you’re sleeping. During sleep tracking, Nest Hub pays attention to anything within the range it set during calibration. When you calibrate your device, make sure that you’re the only person in the room, and your pets aren’t around. That way, your Nest Hub (2nd gen) can better differentiate between you and other people or pets based on your proximity to it. The sleep sensing algorithm doesn’t identify you uniquely, so if another person or even a pet sleeps in the same spot or between you and your Nest Hub, this will affect your data.
