I haven’t setup any assistants. Is Sonos listening and sending my bedroom talk to a transcription service?

I’m sorry that I haven’t memorized the Sonos product line nor do I care about my forum profile. Nik don’t be so naive. Your smart tv, phone, watch, tablet are all listening and there are plenty of transcription tools available to the surveillance capitalist community. I’m trying to make my purchases based on the integrity of the company in their commitment to my privacy. We are tracked at a scale that would scare you if you have the capacity to understand it and we all need to be thinking about limiting surveillance in our homes. Of course the phone tracks the music I play as does Spotify, and the other gazillion tracking bots on my phone. But. If I can play my own private music with a device that doesn’t track, I don’t want my speakers doing it without my consent and understanding. Maybe I’m in the minority now but we should all be aware of our how our behaviors are being tracked and used against us at a scale that in unimaginable to most. In any case, I feel reasonably assured that Sonos has some shred of privacy terms and conditions and I’ll continue to use these.
The hardware link between the Mic and the Mic status light is hard-wired. So if the Mic Light is off, then the mic is also off.
