Creepy google blocking?


Active Member
Ok so recently my wife and I have noticed we are getting articles suggested to us in our Google now/assistant feed that are based off conversations we had. So we talk about something and maybe a week later we start getting articles. There are no searches or anything it's just a conversation.

During these conversations googles voice services (ok google) isn't activated. is this happening and is there a way to block it?

I gotta say it's creepy as hell. At first it was 1 article but now in the last 2-3 weeks we both have gotten at least 5 articles based on stuff we talked about near our phones. We have no other smart alexa or whatever google calls their little speakers.

Thanks for any info, insight or help.
