We were worried about this as well, so we did a lot of user research and put privacy at the forefront of the product.
The vast majority of people (90%) said this wouldn't change how open they are with their managers as long as they can pause the recording and access the transcript.
From the feedback we've got we believe that it takes only one meeting to get used to Nyota. After the first meeting, people forget about Nyota's presence on calls and continue to speak openly.
Finally, we have implemented privacy controls in place so you can pause the recording, kick Nyota out of the call, or redact the transcripts. On top of that we only keep transcripts open for 24 hours so the managers can take notes.
