Google put a microphone in Nest Secure and forgot to tell anyone

"Google's decision to bring Assistant-enabled voice controls to its Nest Secure system is causing a stir almost a year after the integration was rolled out. The problem is no one actually knew the security device, launched in September, 2017, packed a microphone in the first place. Google built a mic into its Nest Guard -- a small hub with a keypad on top that communicates with the other sensors in its Secure system -- but failed to mention it in its product materials, reports Business Insider. Asked about the microphone's existence, Google said it was 'never intended to be a secret.'" https://www.engadget.com/2019/02/20/google-nest-secure-mic-forgot/?fbclid=IwAR1haU6Y2ED0le7ur6b7tB0ZMDq3pENsplTJfRbqJ_jBvQk-bMM4_Fm4KMs
