Google Home Mini Can Spy On Us: Will You Buy A Smart Speaker Now?

If you’ve seen the articles about the journalist whose Google Home Mini spied on him, you’ll probably be happy to know that the company is trying to keep the same thing from happening to anyone who buys one. Google itself certainly wants prospective buyers to know about the change, for obvious reasons, but still, would you buy one of these AI-supported speakers knowing that this sort of thing is possible?

I have to say that when the Amazon Alexa smart speaker started to become popular, my mind immediately turned to Big Brother. What’s worse in this case is that people are happily paying money to help tech companies (and anyone else able to hack into these devices) spy on them.
