Google Home mini: The little listens too much

It is precisely se messages that buyers of smart speakers do not want to read: Individual test devices of Google Home Mini, correlated edition of home, have permanently overheard ir owners. Before devices are officially sold next week, Google has now released an update that permanently deactivates responsible function.

Artem Russakovskii of technology blog Android Police had noticed in days following announcement of HomeMini last week alserstes that speaker not only responded to command "O.K. Google" – as it should be – but repeatedly randomly on dialogs Jumped out of TV. When he called in his Google Kontodas activity log, he saw thousands of entries that DasMini's device had sent to Google's server. Apparently, correctly constantly listened.

Loudspeaker registers "Phantom touches"

Russakovskii contacted Google and Unternehmenreagierte prompt. Google sent an employee to Russakovskii same day to pick up and analyze device.

A day later, Google had identified problem: on top of home Mini, under cloth panel, is "Top touch" button. If you press and hold DieNutzer, you can also activate speaker without a voice command. However, in case of individual test devices, which were distributed to journalists after presentation, device registered "phantom touches" and turned somitimmer on again.
