Yeah, big companies like Samsung and Google tend to do that so you can have 'personalized ads' and stuff. I think you can turn this off in your Google Account settings. I hope this helps.

I have all personalization turned off on all of my accounts and when this happens the microphone indicator in the corner doesn't light up

Then I don't think you can turn it off.

Don't give apps microphone permission. Only the ones that actually need it.

The Google app openly spies on you. If you have Google assistant enabled it is literally an advertised feature.

I try to avoid talking about anything around my phone (or Alexa) that I don't want ads from.  But I think they are wise to that because sometimes I just *think* of something and my FB feed is all ads about the thing I thought about. 😂

For real this is true I think the camera uses AI to see your mood or su.
