How To Video: Delete Fire TV voice data from Amazon’s servers

1:37 /

Amazon gives you the ability to delete your voice recordings that it stores on its servers. CNET’s Dan Graziano shows you how.

[MUSIC] I'm Dan Graziano and I'm here with amazon's new streaming box, the fire tv. This 99 dollar streaming device, can stream content from amazon, netflix, Hulu Plus and other services. It also doubles as a game console, capable of playing hundreds of titles such as the Walking Dead and Minecraft. But what sets the Fire TV apart from the Apple TV and the Roku, is its advance voice controls. Holding the microphone button and saying a movie, TV show, or even an actor or actress, will bring of content from Amazon's library. To improve the service and the voice results however, Amazon stored the recording associated with your account to it's servers. A big company like Amazon having your voice stored on it's servers, that may not sit well with many of you. Luckily, there is a way to delete the data, open your Amazon settings on Amazon's website, scroll down to digital content and click on Manage your content and devices. Then, select the manage your devices option, under the devices and settings section. Select the Fire TV, click on manage voice recordings, and hit the delete button. While Amazon will no longer have your voice on it's servers, the company does warn that deleting recordings may affect the accuracy of voice features. You will also have to repeat this method each time you use the voice features, for more how-to's like this, visit howto.cnet.com, you could also reach out to me on Twitter with any questions or comments. I'm Dan Graziano for Cnet, thanks for watching. [MUSIC]
