According to some users, Telegram Premium transmits voice messages to Google as part of the voice-to-text functionality. It will be like this?
The functionality to which we refer is what it is called voice-to-text translation. In short, a voice message can be transposed into letters if we do not have the possibility to listen to it. So far so good: a truly remarkable feature. Yet some users have raised controversy in Russia
Apparently, to implement this voice-to-text function, the voice messages of Telegram Premium users are sent to Google for processing and converting sound to text. Habr's user with the nickname snaker4 drew attention to this aspect. As the enthusiast noted, there is one in the terms of service clause concerning the conversion of speech to text and is indicated as follows:
Premium Services include the ability to convert any voice message on Telegram to text. This technology is still evolving and there is no guarantee that any voice mail you attempt to convert to text will be correctly transcribed or transcribed. The accuracy and availability of this technology depends on a third party (Google LLC, a subsidiary of Alphabet Inc.) and we cannot guarantee that it will always be accurate and available.
Some users have reacted very negatively to such a message. What do you think about it? Do you use Telegram precisely because it does not rely on Google in a certain sense? And are you worried about this implication? In any case it is useful to note that this feature is not available in secret chats.
