Recordings from your Amazon Alexa-enabled smart speaker can be sent to a team at Amazon to improve Alexa's functionality.

Thousands of Amazon employees and contractors can listen to what you say to Alexa via Alexa-enabled smart devices, like Amazon's own Echo smart speaker, according to a report from Bloomberg on Wednesday.
Indeed, your recording can be "transcribed, annotated, and then fed back into the software as part of an effort to eliminate gaps in Alexa’s understanding of human speech and help it better respond to commands," Bloomberg reported.
Amazon's teams even have chat rooms where they can get help with tricky transcriptions, or share amusing snippets, according to Bloomberg.
