Hi
Follow steps:
Open the Alexa smartphone app or go to alexa.amazon.com
Tap the menu icon in the top-left corner
Tap on Settings
Scroll down and tap History at the foot of the page
Now tap on any of the entries, then tap the triangular play button to hear the recording

Hello,

To be clear, these are only recordings of what she heard, so phrases uttered after you say the Alexa 'hotword' — and it will also record those times where Alexa thought she heard her name, so recorded you anyway.
The reason Amazon does this, is so it can improve the accuracy of Alexa's responses and her ability to understand a broad range of accents and dialects.
The company states: "When you use an Alexa device, we keep the voice recordings associated with your account to improve the accuracy of the results provided to you and to improve our services." Amazon also warns that deleting the recordings "may degrade your experience using the device."
