Services that have voice assistant software have been under fire as of late, as it was discovered that many of these services have manual, or human reviewing.
Microsoft says that it uses the voice recording data to improve their services across all their platforms, and that "This may include transcription of audio recordings by Microsoft employees and vendors, subject to procedures designed to prioritize users' privacy, including taking steps to de-identify data, requiring non-disclosure agreements with vendors and their employees, and requiring that vendors meet the high privacy standards set out in European law and elsewhere."
Just yesterday we reported on Facebook paying contractors to transcribe audio chats, more on that here.
