How to delete history of voice commands saved by Google

Google saves the audios recorded by your users from activating Google Assistant, either by touching the microphone icon or by saying the default command. Anyone who does not want the company to have the information available can easily erase all of this through activity management, as you see in the following lines. The procedure was done on an iPhone X, but also works on Android.

According to the company, this data helps provide more personalized experiences in services such as improved voice and audio recognition, inside and outside of Google.

Pausing audio collection on Google

If you no longer want Google to record your audios, you can pause voice and audio activities. However, the function is useful only for commands made to the wizard, not by changing the recording of information from other company services such as Google Voice or YouTube. Also, disabling the option does not delete the previously fetched data.

Return to the "Voice and Audio Activity" screen, as in step 4 above. Tap on the key and then on "Pause".
