Chinese short-form video-making app TikTok is testing a new ‘sleep reminder’ feature. This allows the user to set alerts during bedtime and mute notifications during her recommended 7 hours of sleep.
The platform has confirmed to TechCrunch that the new sleep reminder is being tested with select users around the world.
The new feature will appear under “Screen Time” settings in the application, and users participating in the test will see a new “Sleep Reminder” option.
The platform says the sleep reminder feature will help users “know if they’ve reached their sleep time on TikTok so they can go to bed when they want to.”
When the clock reaches the selected time, the user will be notified to close the application.
Additionally, the platform mutes push notifications for 7 hours after the user goes to bed.
According to a company spokesperson, TikTok is constantly developing new ways to improve user well-being and this new tool expands on its existing digital wellbeing capabilities.
In February 2020, the application released its screen time management tool and “since then introduced additional features aimed at giving users more control over their use of the app,” the report said. says.
