Amazon Delete What I Said
Alright, hey Mark Phillips here with SimpliSpoken back again for another SimpliSpoken on Voice Daily Flash Briefing. And today, I think we’re going to turn our attention to a recent announcement that kind of set the, the Twitterverse on fire, if you will, which was the fact that Alexa will now allow you to delete your voice recordings on request. So there’s a new voice command that allows you to say to your device, hey, delete everything I said today, and it will erase everything that was heard by that device soon, so that you gotta, you gotta require a setting change in there. So you get to go into your Alexa settings and navigate down to your account privacy settings, and enable this option to reveal your voice history. And that will give you the ability to enable deletion by voice. And so that’s interesting. It’s yet another kind of a, an indication, if you will, that big technology companies like Amazon are beginning to be very sensitive to the kind of the Privacy Protection conversation. So privacy is beginning to be kind of a hot button issue in the marketplace. And so I believe Amazon is getting out ahead of what they believe will be regulatory effort. So it’s interesting, it gets pretty good reviews. There are some folks of course, that will say it doesn’t go far enough, but it is a nice step in the right direction. And so I think that is a nice move on Amazon’s part to allow you to delete what the speaker has heard you say. So hey, thanks a lot guys. SimpliSpoken on Voice Daily Flash Briefing, please do hop over the skill store and give us a good review. Thanks, guys.
