Facebook mimics TikTok, YouTube music seasonal recaps and Alexa washing machine
Facebook reportedly making changes to mimic TikTok. A leaked memo obtained by the verge reveals Facebook plans to change its algorithm to feature more short-form videos. Plans also include reuniting Facebook and Messenger as one app to mimic TikTok’s messaging abilities.
YouTube Music is rolling out seasonal recaps similar to the annual ones by Spotify. Starting with a spring edition, users will get a personalized rundown of their top artists, songs, albums and playlists. You will also have the option of sharing your recap with friends.
Alexa is now helping with your laundry. GE’s newest washer has the Amazon voice assistance built in, providing what GE calls a "more personalized and smarter experience".
The $1,300 set also includes a dryer, but only the washer has Alexa.
