How to delete your entire Amazon Alexa voice history

Amazon makes some of the best smart speakers on the market. From the small but helpful Echo Dot to the 10-inch swiveling display of the Echo Show 10, these speakers can do a lot, all from just the sound of your voice. Amazon saves a voice history of your interactions with the smart speakers, along with four other data points to try and improve your experience with the smart speakers. You can view and control everything from the Privacy Hub. Should there come a time where you want to delete the entire Alexa voice history — here's how.

How to delete your entire Amazon Alexa voice history

The Alexa app on your phone does so much to manage your Echo speakers. You can add a smart home device, create Alexa routines, and more, including managing your voice recordings. If you want to review and delete the recordings, here are the steps.

  1. Open the Alexa app on your phone.
  2. Tap on More, with the three lines in the lower right corner of the screen.
  3. Select the gear icon beside Settings.
  4. Find and tap on Alexa Privacy.

  5. Tap on Review Voice History.
  6. Open the drop-down menu beside Displaying to filter the date range and Echo devices you want to review.
  7. To delete all recordings from the range and devices you chose, tap on the Delete all recordings from link below the Displaying filter.

  8. Review the pop-up notification. If you are sure, tap the DELETE button.

If you want to review or delete a specific recording, tap the arrow beside an individual recording to check it once you've found the recording you're interested in deleting. Pressing the play button will let you listen to what the Echo heard. Then if you want to delete that recording, press the trash can icon. There will be no confirmation asking if you are sure you want to delete that single recording, so be careful.

Recordings from your Amazon Echo speaker can be deleted by using your voice as well. For example, activate your device and say "delete everything I said today" or "delete everything I ever said" to remove recordings. Your Echo speakers record your interactions with it so you can know what it's hearing and help the speaker better understand you. You can make adjustments to your Amazon Echo devices from the Privacy Hub and review the Amazon and Alexa privacy policies.

The hidden cost of food delivery

Noah Lichtenstein Contributor Share on Twitter Noah Lichtenstein is the founder and managing partner of Crossover , a diversified private technology fund backed by institutional investors, technology execs and professional athletes and entertainers. More posts by this contributor What Studying Students Teaches Us About Great Apps I’ll admit it: When it comes to food, I’m lazy. There are dozens of great dining options within a few blocks of my home, yet I still end up ordering food through delivery apps four or five times per week. With the growing coronavirus pandemic closing restaurants and consumers self-isolating, it is likely we will see a spike in food delivery much like the 20% jump China reported during the peak of its crisis. With the food delivery sector rocketing toward a projected $365 billion by the end of the decade, I’m clearly not the only one turning to delivery apps even before the pandemic hit. Thanks to technology (and VC funding) we can get a ri

Technics EAH-AZ60 review: Contending in stunning fashion

Technics serves notice that everyone should notice these earbuds. Technics ventured into the wireless earbuds category to go after the big dogs in the race. Think of the likes of Sony, Bose, and Sennheiser on sound quality, as well as the best you can find on design and functionality. It's a combination that comes at a price, but if done right, it gets easier to justify spending more. That's the case Technics makes with its EAH-Z60 earbuds. Its newest pair aims to take what the company has done in the past and make it even better. The results are easy to like and are significant enough to consider them as serious contenders.

iOS 14 Favorites Widget: How to Make a Replacement With Shortcuts

In iOS 14 , Apple overhauled widgets and introduced an option for adding ‌widgets‌ to the Home Screen , but in the process, a well-loved Favorites widget that existed in iOS 13 was removed. The Favorites widget let users set certain contacts and contact methods as favorites that were easily accessible, so you could, for example, add a favorite option for messaging Eric or calling Dan, with those actions executed with a tap. Why the Favorites widget was removed is a mystery and it could be a simple oversight with Apple planning to reintroduce it later, but for now, those who relied on the widget can recreate its functionality with Shortcuts. It takes some effort, but it may be worth the time investment if you often relied on your Favorites. Creating a Favorites Shortcut Making a shortcut that replicates the behavior of the Favorites widget isn't too tough, but if you want multiple favorite options, you'll need to create a separate shortcut for each one in the Shortcuts
