Violation of child privacy a real concern


I bought the Google Home for a convenient and fun way to stay connected and try something new. Only after using it for two days did it dawn on me that everything my 5 year old was saying to it was being recorded and stored on Google servers. He loved it. “Hi Google” could have gone on for hours if I let it. I work in software development and decided to look further into where things stand with smart speakers and Child Online Privacy and Protection - COPPA (including the collection of children’s personal information, audio, video and images). Bottom line - I couldn’t find anything addressing it. Some concerns have been raised that might lead to legal action at some point, I also saw articles alluding to future patents that could make the listening tech even more invasive. Imagine ads targeting your kids based on conversations you’ve had with them at dinner. These have somehow been sold into millions of homes with a loophole. For now I decided retire the Google Home. I deleted the multiple voice recordings of my son that had been stored via the Google Home app and can only hope that they are permanently gone from Google servers too.

I love Google home


Google home mini has made my life better. Besides helping me with everything things I constantly find myself going back and saying “Hey google !” Needless to say this device saved my life . If you don’t understand or even care about technology. Then this product is NOT for you. Overprotective parents need to get over themselves and stop making everything a problem . We’re spied on each and every day.. by Google, Microsoft , Sony, etc everyday.. our internet providers are constantly watching us. If you don’t like devices and software that record you then DONT get this product. I don’t say or do anything that would get me in trouble so I have no worries. In the end wether you cut a device or service out to try and protect yourself or your family then you might as well live under a rock.. because your always being watched... Always

Good Start, Needs to be More Intuitive

Sc wahoo

Google has done a very good job at starting their home automation system based upon the Home app and their chrome in Chromecast dongles. By aggressively adding industry partners, Google home will quickly become the dominant system, I have no doubt. One can almost do everything via voice with Google Home, which is truly amazing that this is possible in less than one year from launch. There is a bit of additional user interface improvement that can be done in the app, particularly as it relates to interfacing with other systems. No doubt this will come in the near future, for now it takes a little bit of technical know-how and trial and error to get things to work correctly. While this is not a large challenge for experienced computer users, for older or less savvy users it will become problematic.
