Are you under the impression that when you are talking to Alexa, it's just you and Alexa?  Wrong! 

Bloomberg is saying that Amazon has thousands of people listening to your conversations to make your Alexa voice assistant work better and even have a chat room where workers talk about some of the more amusing conversations that they hear.

It  gets even  weirder!  Employees can even hear whats going on in the background while Alexa is on.

While rules are in place so that the conversations are never made public workers hear more than you relaize.  Amazon told the workers it's not the company's place to intervene in conversations.

How do you feel about this?
