Your voice, your choice: managing recordings on Google devices

Love your Google Home for playing tunes and answering questions? But wait, are those conversations being recorded? Don’t worry, you’re in control! Let’s dive into managing your voice and audio activity on Google.

Remember those “Hey Google” moments? Your smart speaker stores recordings of your questions and commands. It can be handy for revisiting things you asked, but maybe you want some privacy back.

Enter the Voice and Audio Activity page: It’s your hub for managing those recordings. You can access it through your Google Account settings. Think of it as a dashboard for your voice data.

Feeling like cleaning house? Delete specific recordings you don’t need anymore. Just like clearing browsing history, but for your voice!

Want to go nuclear? Delete all your voice and audio activity at once. Fresh start, anyone?

But wait, there’s more! You can also turn off voice and audio recording altogether. No more “Hey Google,” no more recordings. Silence is golden, right?

Managing your voice data is all about control. Choose what you want to keep, what you want to delete, and what you want to record in the future. It’s your voice, after all!

Bonus cybersecurity tip: Explore the other privacy settings in your Google Account. You’d be surprised how much control you have over your digital life. So, keep enjoying your smart speaker’s convenience, but remember, you’re the boss of your voice data. Take charge and manage it like a pro.
