The Location permission is required to know your location for internal application functionality that requires it, such as the alert map (Google Maps) and lockouts (Valentine 1)..
The Record Audio permission is required only for the optional Voice Control feature, and recorded audio is never transmitted to anyone except possibly Google, for the purpose of utilizing Google's Speech Recognizer API. This transmission may be minimized or eliminated by ensuring that the correct offline voice data is installed for your device's language setting.
