Amazon recently admitted in a report with Bloomberg that thousands of employees are listening to consumer conversations. The purpose of this is apparently to help eliminate gaps in Alexa's understanding of human speech & better respond to commands.


While we have all been weary that our tech products are listening to us at all times, Amazon wants to assure customers that only a very small amount of conversations are being analyzed and are exclusively used for improving the customer experience.

Amazon also is able to see the first names & Amazon numbers of those who's conversations are being recorded.
