It's a known fact that Google follows each and every activity of ours in detail, where the data is stored to improve the experience of the users collectively. In case, if you use the Google's Voice assistant, you can do internet searches, call contacts, take photos, set an alarm, create a calendar event, make a note, and much more the list goes on.
