Key words about keywords:private and secure
When you have a voice agent, a keyword gates the commands. This keeps what’s spoken both local (on the device) and private. Audio is never sent to the cloud unless you’ve addressed the device – and there’s a high degree of confidence in the command. To add extra security, we’re introducing keyword verification. This means that a command may be sent to the cloud, but not acted upon, if it’s found to be incorrect, also known as a “False Accept”.
