Google calls Nest’s hidden microphone an ’error’

Google said on Wednesday it had made an ’error’ in not disclosing that its Nest Secure home security system had a built-in microphone in its devices. The company said the ’microphone was never intended to be a secret and should have been listed in the tech specs’.

Goggle’s operating standard is to be “evil”. I suggest Duck Duck Go as a search engine. Very effective and they don’t mess with search results. Two thumbs up for Duck Duck Go!

Definitely not defending the tech giants actions in anyway but come on have some common sense you hear story’s about all these home service devices like Alexa, and echo spying wouldn’t it be natural for you to assume Google would try and get on it?

that's really messed up. Im sure there are plenty of other devices with hidden mics and cams in them. We used to worry about big brother watching us or listening to us. 20 years ago I never would have imagined that we would be spending 100s of dollars to willingly carry around the devices capable watching and listing to us. It's a genius move on their part.
