Google claims to record only interactions between connected devices, such as google home speakers when using the famous wake-up word “hello google” or “well google”. But in other cases, google apps use smartphones and give permission to the microphone to work during voice search or even when using it in voice commands for Google’s desktop version. It records every word you say and whether you use famous waking sentences.

It starts when you click the microphone button in google apps to connect with them and start giving voice commands, such as “hello google, look for Italian restaurants near my site!” once that, google apps will begin copying your voice commands. Phrases and words into audio files and scripts, u.s. Today’s editors’ tests were revealed this week.
