Google vows to never store Assistant recordings without permission

Google released a blog post Monday promising to do more to protect users privacy when using its Voice assistant. The Google Assistant is available on Google Home speaker along with Android and iOS smartphones. Google said it has stopped having humans transcribe and launched an investigation into the matter.

If they're making an announcement it means they got caught and this is damage control, not remorse.

"To use our product you must agree to the terms of service, which include storing your communications. If you decline please return this product to where you purchased it" - Google most likely

I get that we're being recorded but seriously. When I say, "Hey Google and Facebook. I'm thinking about buying a boat. Would you send me advertisements for boats.". I expect what I ask for. What good is it if they record us, but they don't target us correctly. I have no qualms with telling them what advertisements they should send my way. Google, if you're reading this. I can't have children anymore. Please. Stop sending me ads for baby clothes.

They will get permission, we won't know when we give it to them but they will get it.

And it's damn hard to revoke all the permissions to keep them from doing it.

They lie to the consumer, their customers and congress. They corrupt the marketing data with their grievance studies fiction and debunked Marxist theory costing companies that use that data billions and damaging brands beyond repair. Even their own Youtube property using the Alphabet communist ideology has lost over $70 Billion dollars in less than 6 months. Why should we ever believe anything they say? Clearly, their not in business to make money or discover and promote truth. It appears they are an ideologically inspired institution on a mission to spread their new religion of communist utopia fantasy land, not in any way shape or form tell the truth. Surpress it, for sure. Share it no, not at all.

since their terms of use probably include the said permission already, it means they will stop recording from devices that are not logged in or that have refused to give permission. Because of course they were recording from those... avoid google as much as you can... seriously...as well as all the teck products from companies with AI assistants. Yeah you can avoid all of it, but reduce as much as possible. Basic suggestions: Brave browser, duckduck go search engine..for starters.
