Bloomberg has revealed that Amazon pays people to listen to a subset of Alexa recordings for the purpose of improving the technology. Do you trust Amazon with recordings of everything you say within an Echo’s earshot?

So, Echo users out there, have you reviewed your voice recordings? I’m curious if you find recordings of conversations that weren’t directed at the Echo.

Yes, I reviewed. One where I had not used alert word, but I remember being there at the time she answered and assume it was caused by audio from TV.

I think @scholle found more recordings that weren’t properly triggered. Scholle, can you share more about that?
