Google is listening and recording your conversation
Few days ago, I was chatting with my wife about something and few hours later, I checked my emails and found the content relevant to our conversations were in advertisement in the sidebar.
Although, there were phones and laptops in the room but I did not search relevant terms on the web.
It was a bit scary to see as if somebody was listening to our conversation.
Now a news came out today.
Google’s been quietly recording your voice. Voice & Audio Activity, you help Google recognize your voice and improve speech and audio recognition
How to find and delete your recordings
- Log into history.google.com
- Click on the hamburger icon on the top left of the page
- Go to “Voice & Audio Activity”
- Scroll through your list to see all the silly things there is audio proof of you asking about
- Click on one of the squares to select a recording to delete
- Stop using the voice function if you don’t want to listen to yourself again in the future
I doubt that it has been just limited to recording, this has been used to advertise stuff as well.
Be careful and switch off the recording function, if you donot want Google to abuse it.
