Many of these internet-connected speaker devices listen constantly for commands and connect to corporate servers to carry them out. Typically, they will ignore private chatter and transmit sound recordings only when you trigger the device, such as by pressing a button or speaking a command phrase like “OK Google.” Some gadgets also have a mute button to disable the microphones completely. But there’s no easy way for consumers to verify those safeguards. (AP Photo/Richard Drew, File)
