    does windows 10 gather my speech if i dont say hey Cortana ??

    So if i leave my mic on as it has no off or mute on it will windows 10 gather my speech and everything i say if i don't say hey Cortana just wondering as i know a USB mic is always on and always there as when i say hey Cortana its a instant response. Just wondering if its like xbox one were its always listening to you all the time?. At least on xbox one you can say stop listening lol.

    Did you enable "Hey Cortana" if so than yes. In order for the Cortana to respond to "Hey Cortana" commands the microphone is passively always on. If "Hey Cortana" is disabled then it will need to be actively enabled by clicking on the microphone. I am not sure if it is always listening even if "Hey Cortana" is not enabled.
