New Option in Google Assistant Now Lets You Have Better Control over Your Data

Recently Google has been focusing on being transparent than ever before in terms of information it collects. My Activity dashboard was launched by the company in 2016 in the same spirit and now it has enabled users to delete their recordings of “OK Google” from its database.

To make things simpler and easy to review, Assistant’s app settings now have an option to let you access your data directly.

Go to Assistant inbox, click your profile picture and then select Settings to see the new menu item, which is on top of the list. This leads you to a page where all recent activities are summarized and give you the option to control how much of data Google can collect, including web, voice, device, app and Marketing information.

It also shows how a company can use your data and the ways you can limit the control of data it collects.

Google is making it easier for Android users to control their data from Assistant settings

Seeing your recent activities is still easier by going to My Activity through browser, and review what Google stores and who is having unauthorized access to your information.

According to AndroidPolice, some of the users still have an old page with latest version v9.88.4.21 but it is being rolled out to users gradually.
