Amazon has also announced new controls for its Alexa voice assistant, allowing consumers the option to erase voice recordings immediately, and it now introduced updated privacy-related speech controls.
Amazon Alexa can also provide its customers with the option of whether or not they want to delete their videos. Alexa can automatically erase the recording as soon as it is read, if users want not to save their recordings.
However, the transcripts for these tapes will be preserved for a month before they are erased by Amazon, too. Go to the Alexa app, more menu, Preferences, Alexa Privacy, Manage your Alexa data, to access this environment.
Just as before, users can continue to manually uninstall their recordings one by one, by date set, device-enabled via Alexa, or even all at once. One thing to note is that Alexa would no longer be able to supply you with custom features if you delete these videos.
Along with this, Amazon also introduced additional privacy-related voice settings to Alexa.
- “Alexa, delete everything I’ve said.” – It will delete all recordings that Alexa had previously stored.
- “Alexa, how do I review my privacy settings?” When you ask, “Alexa, how do I review my privacy settings?” – A direct link will be sent to you that takes you to the Alexa Privacy Settings in the Alexa app.
- “How do I manage my data?” and “How does my data improve Alexa?”
These new privacy options and voice controls will be rolling out today to everyone.
