Facebook is Going to Pay for Your Voice Recording
Facebook is going to pay some of its use for recording their voice. The company announced this on Thursday, where Facebook, Amazon, Apple, Google, and Microsoft were caught listening and transcribing voice recordings to improve their speech recognition system without informing their users.
As such, Facebook will let you make voice recordings in a program called “Pronunciation” in its viewpoints market research app. The requirement for the program is really easy, where you will need to be in the US, over the age of 18, and have more than 75 Facebook friends.
If you qualify to be a part of the program, Facebook says that you will be able to record the phrase “Hey Portal” followed by the first name of a friend from your friend lists. You will be able to do this with the names of up to 10 friends, and you have to record each statement twice.
Facebook, however, won’t be paying much for the recording. If you complete one set of recordings, you will get 200 points in the viewpoints app. You will need to earn at least 1,000 points to transform it into a $5 reward via PayPal. Facebook also says that it will be rolling the program out slowly, so not every user will be able to join the program. So if it is made available to you, you won’t need to update the viewpoints app to see it pop up.
