Google voice search records and keeps your conversations; here’s how to delete

Apart from keeping a record of what questions we ask Google, the company is also reportedly keeping an account of everything being said around it for years. A report by Independent points out that the company quietly records many of the conversations that people have around its products.

However, there is a way you can listen and delete all of the information collected by Google. According to the report, users need to head to Google’s history page and search for the list of recordings which are present on the company’s audio page which shows the record.

One can listen to all the recordings and also, see information about how the sound was recorded. If you wish, you could visit the page and delete either specific recordings or simply everything. You are also recommended to turn off the virtual assistant and never to use voice search too.

The report adds that to delete particular files, you can click the check box on the left and then move back to the top of the page and select “delete”. To get rid of everything, you can press the “More” button, select “Delete options” and then “Advanced” and click through.
