There is no doubt, Google is the only search engine most people use to search for things, and if you use your voice, there is a lot of your voice data available with Google. So I am here with how you can delete all your voices that Google has on its servers under voice and audio activity.
From searching for things on the internet to ask your digital assistant like Amazon Alexa or Google Home to create a reminder, alarm or ask something, we all need our voices to do that. Our voices have made it more convenient to communicate with electronic gadgets and if you are using some digital assistants like Google Home or Alexa by Amazon, most of them can record all your conversations, which is kind of frustrating. But not everybody has those smart assistants in their home, however, that doesn’t stop us from searching, using our voices and communicate with Google Assistant or other smart assistants using our voice.
The voice that we use for communication is used by Google and other big companies depending upon which product or device you are using, to improve their services and also target ads as per your requirements. But you might not want Google to store everything you said to it a couple of years ago. If you think it is a threat to your privacy, when the big companies can store your voices on their servers, you can certainly delete them which can make you feel safer.
