According to a report, Amazon is considering releasing Alexa voice recordings to app developers.
This is an interesting development, and one that might also cause privacy campaigners to perk up.

Those app developers may be quite surprised to hear what audio gets picked up by Alexa.

I wonder if the audio will be limited to Alexa actions, rather than conversations.
