Earlier in the previous month, we went through a report where Google admitted that it is listening to the audio recorded by Google Smart Home speakers. Google’s smart assistant helps you to get your answers whenever you ask something. With the implementation of Artificial Intelligence, Google Assistant is now available in the form of the Google Home smart speakers. And they are listening to you for 24 hours and stores each of your voice on Google’s server.

However, this is all part of their research and improvement on Google Assistant artificial intelligence system. The recordings were exposed by one of the Google Employee in order to remove the curtains from Google’s practices.

Results, Google has now suspended its experiments on Google Assistant audio in Europe.

We are in touch with the Hamburg data protection authority and are assessing how we conduct audio reviews and help our users understand how data is used. Shortly after we learned about the leaking of confidential Dutch audio data, we paused language reviews of the Assistant to investigate. – Google spokesperson

To record and keep customers’ private recordings without their knowledge is a violation of European laws. However, we do have seen many companies doing the same thing. The better name you might want to say is Amazon via its Alexa.

Google confirms, listening to the audio recordings is just a part of the experiments. It helps Google to improve its voice recognition technology. While we know there are plenty of different languages people talk in the world. So, Google said they hire language experts to analyze the snippets of recordings made by users.

“We partner with language experts around the world to improve speech technology by transcribing a small set of queries – this work is critical to developing technology that powers products like the Google Assistant,” — Google.

Day by day, the technology is now going far and currently every smart device which is in your home including your smartphone listening to you. I know you are surprised but it is technically proven.
