There is a shimmer of light in all this of course:

Not everyone is onboard with the idea of a Google camera that’s always watching them, but the company has pointed out that the device does all of its work with its own hardware, and doesn’t send anything out to external servers.

Of course it’ll happily upload all those images to Google Photos free of charge and including all meta data.
