Yes, Google Employees Are Listening to Your Private Conversations

The Infinite Brief
Google employees are systematically listening to audio files recorded by Google Home smart speakers and the Google Assistant smartphone app.

Most of these recordings were made consciously, but Google also listens to conversations that should never have been recorded, some of which contain sensitive information.

Thousands of employees worldwide use this system to listen to audio excerpts.

Google states that their language experts only judge “about 0.2 percent of all audio fragments”. These are not linked to any personal or identifiable information, the company adds.
