If you're concerned about your smart speaker listening to more than just your online orders, California lawmakers are working on protecting your conversations.
A bill that would prevent smart speaker makers from storing voice recordings or transcripts without the user's consent passed the state Assembly this week.
Lawmakers pointed to a recent Bloomberg News report that found thousands of Amazon employees listened to recorded audio from users of the company's Echo device, commonly known as "Alexa."
Google also offers a smart speaker, known as Google Home.
The measure now moves to the Senate for a vote. If it passes, the bill would then move to the governor's desk for his signature.
