Shhh! Google Assistant is Always Listening to Me!
Like me you guys also get irritated with the creepy google assistance listening you all the time, You are in a meeting or doing some important thing or talking with your buddies in a group and suddenly you find out that assistance pops up and starts listening to you, that’s something very creepy and you find it very weird. You get irritated and feel so offended to think that what’s wrong with the assistance.
Is google assistance listening to you all the time? This is the question actually comes in mind almost all of us. In the middle of the conversation, your google assistance pops up randomly and start talking and keeps a tab on your conversation. You might have thought so many times to disable your google assistance but you ended up with no result.
We all love interacting with our favourite google assistance and bunch of it’s pretty cool features, who doesn’t love to get the things done with google assistance with the voice control, But at a point of time many individuals like me who doesn’t want to compromise with their privacy, who doesn’t want to let the assistance hear and record their private conversation and talks, then I personally found it very weird to know that our favourite assistance is keeping an eye on our complete conversation.
