Facebook will let users disable storage of Portal voice snippets

As consumer tech companies come under fire for how they handle voice data from consumers, Facebook is announcing changes to how users can manage recordings and transcriptions that are stored on Facebook's services. At a press event announcing Facebook's new line of Portal hardware, exec Andrew Bosworth told reporters that the company would be adding the ability for users to halt sending voice recordings to Facebook's servers. "Even with the first generation of Portal you were able to review and delete those voice interactions at any time," Bosworth told reporters.
