Google Has Been Recording Your Voice

ICYMI - https://youtu.be/6Zuq7lvdCNY What unexpected voice clips did you find? Let me know in the comments! Head over to https://history.google.com/history/audio to check for recorded clips from your device (must be logged into Google account). This recording function exists to help Google understand your language better in the future for voice search etc. The problem arises from "hot words" that launch the voice function and sometimes record audio unknowingly. This feature can be turned off completely if paranoia strikes. In my case it had recorded roughly a dozen audio exchanges that I was unaware of.

I've known this for about a year. It works through Google opinions, your mic, your texts, e-mails and even your camera, everything you do with devices containing the Google Trojan horse. Even if you remove all Google programmes and permissions on your Android G👀gle still owns the operating system. Here are some examples; I was having a shave in front of my phone yesterday and boom withing 1 minuet, adverts for electric razors. Also a year back my phone randomly snapped a picture, right when my young daughter walked past NUDE! Then an hour later, Google opinion awards sent me the question "do you have children in your home?" Holy fucking shit is there some kind of pedo ring at Google, snapping pictures of people's children?

If you actully talk about a topic ie dogs (even if you dont have one) you should start to receive dog related ads in your apps and browser. Everyone should know about your voice searches being recorded The problem is they record you at any given moment to give you better ads even if you're not using google assistant.

It's not even cellphones... Anything that has a microphone which Google is installed also is always listening to you. What's worse? You can talk about dog toys for no particular reason and next time you go on a website POP! Dog Toy ads all over the place. Facebook and Google are always listening

Thought Experiment/ Legal Question: If someone accidentally triggers the voice record function (as demonstrated in that video) , and that recording captures objective, unfalsifiable evidence of a crime, Could that evidence be admissable in court?

People, people, people. Do you not realize that EVERY single conversation, action, and word, 24/7 is being recorded, as are you movements, footsteps....every dollar you spend, all of it. There are massive, MASSIVE complexes the size of Cities which only purpose to serve is storing the information of every Citizen. Look it up People or keep believing Mark.

I found out about this and checked my voice recording history and found this video afterwards... My whole 30 minute Skype call is recorded in parts!? Also there are conversations between me and my friends recorded in parts. Also there's a voice recording of me showering. There's a voice recording of me arriving in a metro station and bunch of other recording of me in a public transport...

Found loads on mine and some did creep me out, I see the time also said audio was taken. One said it responded to good morning at 3am but voice unverified? Pretty spooky and I couldn't hear the audio as wasn't verified. The setting can be turned off but every moth they go back on so you need to keep doing this.

I think if Apple were doing this that the format of the video of the video would have been more “devastating violation of personal privacy and they should be ashamed and you should by a droid” rather than this nonchalant passive calm, “hey it’s ok that it recorded me, anyways catch ya later”.... Love ya Lew but the google-dollars are showing :-)

I don't see the voice recording list when I go to the link you listed here. Perhaps Google have changed the settings. It is not there anymore. I see the search activity and the words I said using Google voice search. But nothing else seems to be recorded that I'm not aware of.

Google own android do they not? They own everything else. Google IS big Brother. What creeps me out is some young punk kid owns it all. ONE GUY! Maybe hes the AntiChrist and he is gonna make us all get a google chip installed in our heads. Yea it creeps me out, bad. I freaked out when I made a call and it said, "this call is being recorded for quality assurance". OK, Im being recorded WITHOUT my consent. But if I dont WANT to be recorded I guess I dont get to use the phone. Cause they ALL record you, then report back to Google of course :) Look out 666 here we come.

If me and Google are going to have such a close and personal relationship, why haven't we gotten married already? Since they know my every move and thought. The fact that they are keeping record of it, makes me think it's time to break things off. Stalker/Investigator/Creepy/WTF happened to privacy in the U.S.?

The insane part is that even if you shut off voice recording, all it does is make the convenient apps like Ok Google not function. However it still states that Google CAN AND WILL continue to record you at will regardless. So you can say is want my privacy don't record me, and their answer is 'fine you don't get Google voice commands, but no we're not going to stop recording you'

My phone sits in a leather case and is turned off until I want o use it ,it also all voice options turned off all with location that said I did a factory reset on a tablet tuned off all geo location setting's and put my country down as Afghanistan then put the WiFi on went onto Gumtree and at the bottom of the page was the first half of my post code those fkers it dont mater what you turn off they can turn anything on remotely look at the iPhone under clocking even I you put a new battery in it still slows down so you have to buy a new apple iPhone ,I'm looking forward to their new year's sales figures and their share price , buy an apple product I would sooner sh1t a pineapple whole !

Now that the A.I. have been unleashed and is growing and developing with out the knowledge of humans. It would be critical to have on every internet device an analogue physical switch that disconnect mechanically every signal when the hell you want it. It is insane to work and pay to have a device that can potentially become a weapon against you. Could someone with some power push for this? I am in Germany, liberal zombie land. So I am trapped.

From my understanding, it only records when you press whatever to activate the assistant app but shows up as Google app. When you open another app, it shows the name of that app instead. Facebook for example.

I had to edit my comment. HIGH KEY this feature can totally change the future. Being able to go back and have a detailed audio recording is so helpful, I'm being honest here. Think of, for example, being accused of a crime, and there being no one else to cover for you, and the State then decides you are guilty. Well this function that can be prevented if audio is recorded at a certain time. Now I know there is there is a large gray area surrounding this, but realizing I can go back and here what I said to my phone is super helpful to know just from all angles. And I'm not a big consumer, so i rarely see advertisements, and at this point I know how to manipulate the software made by companies to not be shown things I do not want to see. The future is now
