I was using Gboard to write a message (with the microphone message). I said something rude I don't want it to save or repeat in predictions. Does Gboard save what is said anywhere, and if so how do I delete it?

I know some phrases you say to your phone do get stored in your Google Account, but I think this is mainly with "ok google".

By the way, on my phone it's called "Gboard" not Google Keyboard.

  • @RahulGopi to my understanding it's a re-branding – northerner Jan 14 '18 at 2:10

Ok, it turns out that it does not only save the audio, it saves the activities you have done on your account in Google activities, so you can keep track of them, and also delete them, selecting one activity after the others. It is like a history of your account


Yes, at the end of every mic message the keyboard make a toast appears that says

Audio saved to your account

    any idea how to remove it? – northerner Jul 11 '17 at 19:46
  • Didn't find any option that hinted about it, only a "share utilisation statistics" in the advanced menu, that I turned off just for the sake of it I dont think there is a proper way to deactivate that function, sorry – Nicola Galluccio Jul 13 '17 at 8:44
  • I'm not asking how to turn it off, I'm asking how to delete a saved audio recording? Where's it kept, I don't see it in the normal place where Google save's what you say to the phone. – northerner Jul 14 '17 at 8:19
