Does Portal record all of my conversations? How do I know when Portal is recording?

Portal only makes a recording when it hears the wake word, “Hey Portal.” When Portal activates you will see a visual confirmation at the bottom of the screen. Additionally, you can have Portal play a beginning and ending sound when it processes a "Hey Portal" voice interaction. You can turn this on in Portal Settings > Privacy.
