Facebook might know more about you than your spouse does

Facebook's users are looking a lot more closely at how much data the company holds on them after the Cambridge Analytica scandal, which demonstrated how seemingly trivial Facebook apps could actually harvest huge amounts of personal information. We told you last week this wasn't really a privacy breach.

Facebook also said that if you no longer wish to continuously upload that information, you can turn that data sharing off in your settings.

The text to speech conversion technology is powered by machine learning and comes with 32 different voices from 12 languages and variants as well as a collection of high-fidelity WaveNet generated voices, synthesized with WaveNet's neural network of speech samples which allows for more natural-sounding and listener-preferred speech from fewer audio samples and in less time than other TTS technologies.

This may be why Facebook has recently started prompting users with this permission request for call and text history on newer versions of Messenger. For instance, Google says the feature could take a phrase like "sales manager Bay Area" and bring back candidates with relevant job skills who are based in Bay Area cities.

The new languages are now available for Google Maps on both iOS and Android.

Many users seem surprised that Facebook uploaded their contacts as well as call and text history from their phones. Second, Google now allows listeners to adjust the speed of the narration; you can set it to 3x speed to get through your book faster, or slow narration down to 0.5x.

For those interested in learning more, Google has also provided product documentation and pricing.

Facebook is providing users a page where they can also see which contacts you have uploaded to Facebook; you can also delete all the contact data you've uploaded to the company's servers there. The company also announced that it's expanding ebook and audiobook family sharing to users in 13 countries, including Belgium, Germany, Italy, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Russia, Spain, Switzerland, Chile, Mexico, Japan (audiobooks only), and South Africa.

One other reason why Google may have allowed developers to access that data back in 2012 was Apple's App Store supremacy.

Gradient Ventures, an early-stage venture fund within Google, is leading a $6 million investment in Scotty Labs, which is developing software to let humans control cars remotely.

Cloud Text-to-Speech has a number of uses, including powering voice response systems for call centers and enabling real-time natural language conversations, according to a Google blog post.
