Tech Bytes: Uber offers EVs, Tik Tok new feature, Walmart launches AR feature
More electric car service for Uber customers. The upscale option has expanded to 25 North American markets. The service is now available in Atlanta, suburban New York City, and Washington, DC. Vehicle choices include Tesla’s and the Ford Mustang Mach E.
Tik Tok now has a new feature that invites users to take and share a front and back camera photo, at a random time every day. It’s supposed to offer a more authentic view of what’s going on in your life. The feature is being called a copy of a French social app that does the same thing.
Walmart is launching a feature for shoppers to try on clothes virtually. You’ll have to upload a full-body photo of yourself, and the AR technology will know where the fabric should drape or cling. The “be your own model” tool lets you try on over 270,000 items.
