Google fails to disclose microphone in Nest SecureStaff Writer |
America Google said here Nest Secure would be getting an update
Google said on Wednesday it had made an “error” in not disclosing that its Nest Secure home security system had a built-in microphone in its devices.
The device's published specifications did not mention a microphone, however the updated product page here now mentions one.
“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. The microphone has never been on and is only activated when users specifically enable the option,” Google said. ■
