Alphabet Inc. (NASDAQ:GOOG) Makes ‘Error’ in Not Disclosing Microphone on Nest System
Alphabet Inc.’s Google said it made an error when it didn’t disclose in product materials that its Nest Secure home security system contained a microphone.
“The on-device microphone was never intended to be a secret and should have been listed in the tech specs. That was an error on our part,” a spokesperson told Business Insider.
Google announced earlier this month that Nest Secure would be getting an update – users could now enable its virtual assistant technology, Google Assistant. The problem, however, was that Nest users didn’t know a microphone even existed on their security device to begin with, Business Insider reported.
Google said “the microphone has never been on and is only activated when users specifically enable the option.”
