Default Google belatedly today turned off auto-store of audio when you interact by voice to protect your privacy

Dateline today, all verbatim... (see the cite for more detail)

"The company has turned off storing audio recordings for all users
until they opt in again..."

"although Google is turning off the setting to save audio recordings for
everyone, it's not changing the policies for audio that has already been
uploaded. If you want that deleted, you can go and do it yourself."

o Google is sending a complicated privacy email to everyone - here's what it means
https://www.theverge.com/2020/8/5/21354805/google-email-audio-privacy-opt-in-human-reviewers-assistant

"Google says the precise number of users getting the email is
confidential. It should land in the inbox of anybody who has interacted
with a product that uses Google's [freeware] voice AI, including apps
like Google Maps and services like Google Assistant."

"If you opt in to allowing Google to store your audio, it gets used in two
ways. There is a period where is it associated with your account.
*Google uses that data to improve voice matching*..."

"As of June 2020, the default timeline for data getting automatically
deleted is 18 months - but only for accounts created after June 2020.
If your account is older than that, you'll need to manually change your
deletion timeline."
