According to a company representative, Microsoft employees and contractors subsequently study the data obtained in order to improve services.
To make the process more transparent, Microsoft updated the privacy information and FAQ sections of services and products, noting in these materials that the interaction with voice services is recorded and saved.
Recall, in recent years, several large IT companies have admitted the fact of listening to user records by both company employees and third-party contractors. They all explain these actions by the need to collect material to improve services.
