The ones I have, there is a control to turn it off. I don't and never have used mine
for purchases or making payments. I'm not even sure mine does that. Amazon has
the ones in which you can simply state to order something. They can do that because
the site already has your cc payment info so you don't need to relay that info, it already
has it online. It was kind of funny about the child that placed an order.....I forget what
it was the child ordered, something like 100 toys or some such.
What I really like about it more than anything was simply asking the time and telling it
to wake me up at such and such time. Not having to fool with setting a clock alarm.
You have to state one of two phrases and it has to recognize your voice. One phase
is 'Hey Google'. Hey google wake me at 6am. Hey google find me the best apple
pie recipe. Hey google what time is it.
It's kind of fun such as 'hey google, tell me some jokes' and 'hey google tell me a
story'. Hey google play a bob Dylan song'.
It's for lazy people.
