Tech Bytes: Tiktok removed 113M videos, Amazon introduces Halo Rise, Google Maps is getting an update
Tiktok removed 113 million videos between April and June of this year. That represents about one percent of the total videos uploaded during that period. The majority were taken down for violating minor safety policies.
Amazon has introduced a sleep sensing lamp for people who would rather not wear a wristband or smartwatch to bed. The Halo Rise will gather data about your sleep from it’s perch on your nightstand without using a camera, and it doubles as a sunrise alarm clock. It will cost $140 when it comes out later this year.
Google Maps is getting an update, and will start helping users with a “vibe”. The new feature will let users view 3D renders of monuments and restaurants in locations they hope to visit. Google says the feature will roll out over the coming months
