Google's new voice and audio settings give you more control over your privacy

From CNET: Google on Wednesday let people know it's still having humans review voice and audio recordings on devices like Google Home. However, the search giant's email also said it's giving you more control over what's being shared and has automatically turned off the feature for all accounts.

"Saved audio recordings help improve our audio recognition technologies, so products like Google Assistant can understand language even better in the future," the company said.
