When Apple released its Live Listen feature, it was meant to assist those with hearing impairments to hear better. Now, as some Reddit and Twitter users have shared, it is possibly being used to eavesdrop on private conversations. 

The Live Listen feature was released with iOS 12, and enables one’s iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch to act as a microphone and transmit sound to the AirPods.
