The company that jgatie linked to sells both opaque, and various levels of translucent covers.
Which is why the light is there.
Read my first post, I want the light only wen off, because it’s on almost all time
No. Sonos hardwired the LED to the microphones because they want users to be sure that when the light is off, the microphone is also off, and vice versa. The paranoia over privacy issues seem to outweigh the people who don't like lights shining in their sleeping areas.


Paranoia, right? From now on call it foresight. https://gizmodo.com/the-amazon-alexa-eavesdropping-nightmare-came-true-1831231490

No, still paranoia. Data breaches are inevitable. It is how one reacts that matters.
For the avoidance of doubt, I get why people would be concerned at the collection of this stuff, but personally it won't stop me using Alexa. The point of the light is that you know when the microphone is on.

If others take a different view that is their right.

It's mainly NOT about data breach incidents (a person sent the wrong file, that's indeed inevitable), it's about the SCALE of very personal data collected – and available for e.g. employees to send out in an email.

So did they ever catch the guy who held the gun to your head and forced you to purchase and/or use Alexa?

It is a legitimate question. Nobody is forced to buy and/or enable Alexa devices. Why you are here preaching the gospel of data collection to a choir of quite willing Alexa owners belies logic.

You are worried about it, we get that. So the easy solution is . . . DON'T BUY/ENABLE ALEXA DEVICES!!
