Google admitted that contractors can access recordings made by Assistant, after some of its recordings were leaked.

Been absolutely refusing to use any of these devices for precisely this reason. Google and Amazon have both been very quiet on how data is kept and access to it. The recent NHS direct news, teaming up with amazon to give medical advice, horrified me for exactly this.
Both companies have had data breaches, they should be allowed nowhere near NHS services

@sophia i will never understand why people want their house to listen to them

Yelling across your hous for something to happen isnt more convenient than walking like 10 feet and doing it yourself


@Mooncake @sophia voice assistance and automation could be unbelievably helpful for disabled people, but they shouldn’t have to give up their privacy for it.

@sweetmercury @Mooncake yep. If there was a focus on pushing for transparency and accountability over the data then I could support it for the access thing alone but it'll never happen
