"Hey Google!" will become your new favorite greeting. Hey Google, turn on the lights. Hey Google, play Bohemian Rhapsody. Hey Google, what are the symptoms of toe fungus? Hey Google, are you still listening to me? From the Mini to the Max, these smart speakers (smart microphones?) are fun and useful...and maybe just a bit creepy? Tell us on the Creep-O-Meter below!
What could happen if something goes wrong
Google gets to know you really well, maybe too well. They know you have a mouse problem because you keep asking for ways to get rid of mice. They recognize your voice from all the times you ordered plain cheese pizza. They know you are single because who orders plain cheese pizza? Just kidding, they know you're single because of all those pedicure appointments you've booked for one. Maybe it's OK Google knows you so well. Maybe it's creepy. It's all fun and games until those weirdly specific targeted political ads start tracking you all around the internet.
