My home network router showed upload to internet at maximum.. Traced it to a Samsung phone, took a look through the phone setting and found Google Voice & Audio Activity turned on. Turned it off (it only allows you to pause it) and upload stopped. I noticed the battery on the phone was going down fast over the last 2 days as well. Seems Google was listening to everything the phone could hear, even when the phone was not in use. Now I need to check all the other phones in the household.
