"Ok Google" Knows More Than You Think

People who use Google's voice controlled "Ok Google" feature might be disturbed how Google saves these searches. Google actually has every voice search from "Ok Google" in the form of a recording. That's right, "Ok Google" keeps recordings of your voice when used for searching. Are we Google's senpai or something?

But don't worry, you can remove these recordings from your history. Whether Google will still have that recording in their servers after deletion is a mystery. After all, nothing on the internet is ever truly removed. Here's how to remove them. Go to the Voice & Audio Activity page. To delete them individually, check the boxes next to recordings you'd like to delete. Then, click delete at the top of the screen. To delete them all at once, click the three dots (menu icon) in the top right corner of the page, click Delete Options, select Advanced, select All Time from the dropdown menu, and click Delete. I hope this helps!
