I’m probably not the only one who hasn’t thought about this yet. Should we specifically point out to our guests if there are smart speakers from Amazon and Co. on our four walls? After all, private things are gossip and not everyone wants to be “eavesdropped.” It’s my four walls, but a reference to cameras and speakers might be appropriate.

Google’s Rick Osterloh has a clear stance on this issue, he revealed in an interview. I would point out to guests that smart speakers are available. At the same time, he pointed out that he had not given this further thought before asking the question. It also says that smart hardware should be introduced to new guests. The only question that remains is how this might look in implementation.

Google and company are always with you anywhere

But there are not just smart speakers, all Android smartphones now have a comparable tool on board with the Google Assistant, and Apple buyers always have Siri with them. Where do you start, where do you stop? Smart speakers basically not only eavesdrop on our own four walls, but also through the smartphone without interruption.
