🔗 Google VP says guests should be informed if you have smart devices in the home

The devices can also record independently of user commands, which means users might not realize the Nest has been activated. While the four LEDs on top of a Nest Mini (and the corresponding lights on the Nest Hub Max) should indicate the device is listening, the method is not foolproof. With devices like these, Google should take more steps to prevent accidental activations and enable stronger user privacy options rather than ask users to inform guests they might be recorded.
