It turns out that Google actually does listen to “Ok Google” queries

If you believed Google when they said that they don’t monitor “Ok, Google” queries, new information from a whistleblower indicates otherwise.

This whistleblower spoke to VRT News, but also provided proof via over 1,000 audio recordings. Some of those recordings even included sensitive information, such as home addresses.

Some of the stranger things about this is that the majority of the queries actually referenced pornography. Many of them also had medical questions included in them.

If you have a Google Home device in your residence, we highly recommend taking a look at the story from VRT News. It may just shock you.
