(WIVB) — Watch what you say: Google is listening.

The company revealed that contractors review a percentage of recordings made by customers through Google Assistant devices, like Google Home and Android-based phones.

More than 1,000 recordings were obtained by a Belgian broadcaster.

Google leaders say just a fraction are reviewed by humans to improve language software.

Customers may occasionally be recorded even when they’re not using a virtual assistant.
