Three US senators have written to the Google CEO Sundar Pichai demanding answers about the companys relationship with Chinas Huawei.
The letter, sent on Wednesday, follows reports that Google and Huawei were collaborating on a smart speaker and are “even closer than previously understood.”
“These devices can enable untrustworthy companies to listen in on Americans’ conversations. Your attempts three weeks ago to downplay your involvement in China, plus new revelations about your close relationship with Huawei, raise serious questions. . .,” the Senators wrote, expressing concern that smart speakers double as listening devices.
