It's been reported that thousands of Amazon workers listen to your conversations with Alexa.
There are teams stationed around the world and they are listening, transcribe the recordings and then send them back into the Echo's software to erase the gaps in Alexa's ability to understand speech.
It gets even creepier!
Employees can even hear the chatter when you are not talking to Alexa!
The workers signed a contract of nondisclosure agreements and listen to 1,000 audio clips per nine-hour shifts
