    Google voice search records and keeps conversations people have around their phones – but the files can be deleted.

    "Just talking is enough to activate the recordings – but thankfully there's an easy way of hearing and deleting them.

    Google could have a record of everything you have said around it for years, and you can listen to it yourself.

    The company quietly records many of the conversations that people have around its products.

    The feature works as a way of letting people search with their voice, and storing those recordings presumably lets Google improve its language recognition tools as well as the results that it gives to people.

    But it also comes with an easy way of listening to and deleting all of the information that it collects. That’s done through a special page that brings together the information that Google has on you.

    It’s found by heading to Google’s history page and looking at the long list of recordings. The company has a specific audio page and another for activity on the web, which will show you everywhere Google has a record of you being on the internet."


    Gawd dayum.

    I was on my ipad the other evening while watching TV. My Google app kept picking up dialogue from what I was watching & gave me google results for whatever key words it was picking up. One minute I'm here at the shed & the next minute I'm viewing search results for "is she dead?"

    It's illegal in Mass. In Massachusetts both persons have to know their being recorded. How do I get in on the class action suit?
