Alexa, Siri, Google allow opt out of human listening


Not before time (via Bloomberg): Inc. will let Alexa users opt out of human review of their voice recordings, a move that follows criticism that the program violated customers’ privacy.

emphasis mine

Apple has actioned this just recently, and Google has (in EU at least) as well.

Still not right that people can opt out (ie they need to take the initiative) – this should be an opt-in to allow choice instead IMO.
