Tech Bytes: Amazon layoffs, Google health app
Massive layoffs are reportedly coming to Amazon. The New York Times says the company is set to cut ten thousand jobs this week, the most in it’s history.
The layoffs will reportedly affect the division responsible for Alexa voice services, as well as retail and human resources.
It comes as Amazon founder Jeff Bezos says he plans to give away most of his estimated $124B fortune, during his lifetime.
It’s unclear exactly when he will distribute the money, Bezos says the money will be devoted to fighting climate change and other causes.
Google has launched an app to integrate health and fitness data from more than 10 other apps.
Google “Health Connect” will centralize access with your permission. For example, Android users can now sync up and get credit for their Peloton workout on their weight watchers app.
