Audio Unaffected
YouTube’s Updated Copyrighted Music Eraser Tool

YouTube has finally released an updated eraser tool allowing creators to remove copyrighted music from their videos without affecting other audio elements like dialogue or sound effects.

The tool, announced by YouTube chief Neal Mohan, utilizes an AI-powered algorithm to accurately detect and remove only the copyrighted song.

While the tool has shown improvements, YouTube warns that it may not always successfully remove the song alone. If the tool fails, creators may still need to mute all sound in the claimed segments or trim them out.

High-Tech to No-Tech
Nike’s Self-Lacing Sneakers Losing Support

Nike is discontinuing the Nike Adapt app, which controls its self-lacing Adapt BB sneakers, in August. The app allowed users to adjust tightness presets and LED light colors via Bluetooth.

After the app is removed from app stores, users will still be able to operate basic functions like powering on/off and adjusting laces using physical buttons on the shoes.

However, they won't be able to adjust the lighting or move the app to new devices.

“Imagine” Feature
WhatsApp Developing Personalized AI Avatar Generator

WhatsApp is developing a new generative AI feature called "Imagine" that will allow users to create personalized avatars of themselves in various settings.

The feature uses user-supplied images, text prompts, and Meta’s AI Llama model to generate avatars. Users can create these avatars by taking photos of themselves and then using commands like “Imagine me” with a description in Meta AI chat.

The feature is optional and requires manual activation in settings, with the option to delete reference images at any time. There is no specified release date for this feature.
