The thing is, this has appeared to happen to people. This thread is full of anecdotes. But by itself, it proves nothing. You don’t get to say “my phone is listening to everything I say” just because you happened to get an ad for the laundry detergent you discussed forgetting at the store the night before. You don’t find confirmation in that one hit, when everything else you say goes by without an appropriate ad.Wouldn’t this be incredibly easy to test. Just sit down with some friends and pick random topics to talk about which none of you have any interest in without ever searching for it on your phones and see what happens.
That’s one of the main reasons I don’t believe this because it would be so damn easy for people to find out.
