Now its Amazons turn to bow down to the EU’s pressure on people to review their respective digital assistants recordings. While human review was paused by Apple and Google, Amazon decided to provide Alexa users with a clearer, more extensive opt-out environment.
Amazon has already provided a much clearer set of privacy measures than either Google or Apple — setting up a privacy portal after the final round of Alexa voice recording scandals disclosed more than most thought. That portal has now updated language on what it will do when you decide to check certain boxes.
Specifically, you can go to your Amazon Alexa app and navigate to your settings, then “Alexa Privacy” and lastly “Manage How Your Data Improves Alexa,” and discover fresh language on that page that now specifically calls out “your voice recordings may be used to develop new features and manually reviewed to help improve our services” (emphasis ours).
