With the purchase of my Google Pixel 2 XL phone, there was a Google Home Mini that came in for free. I had conflicting thoughts about using such a “listening device” in my home. I’m sure, no one would want a… spy in their own home.
But then again, think of this: the exact same functionality that exists in these small home devices, exists in every smartphone today. Every single one of them. The only difference is that you can always hide your phone in another room if you want to have a spy-free conversation, while with such a device, you’d have to take it off the plug.
Oh well, sign o’ the times, right?
