Facebook is not exactly a company that is characterized by being a strong defender of respect for the personal information of users, and in fact it has already had several scandals related to this matter. And it seems that, a priori, this type of information will not be released.

Facebook has heard your audios and transcribed them
Yes, you read that right, Facebook said it was listening and transcribing the audios you've been sending on Facebook Messenger with people, in order to verify that his Artificial Intelligence carried out the transcriptions of said audios well. Something that, they say, stopped doing more than a week ago.
