Facebook delays unveiling home speaker
In March 2018, Facebook announced it was scrapping plans to show off new home products at its developer conference in May, in part because revelations about the use of internal advertising tools by Cambridge Analytica have angered the public. The new products were expected to include connected speakers with digital assistant and video chat; they are now undergoing a review to ensure that they incorporate the right approach to user data. At the developer conference the company will also explain new rules about what information app makers can collect on their users via Facebook's service.
