Brave connecting to google voice assistant?

Hi, I scanned the traffic running though my network interface the other day, to find there was an encrypted channel sending “application data” between my laptop and a family member’s google voice assistant. I blocked traffic on any port from the voice assistant’s IP, but later the traffic reappeared. I ran netstat and saw that the application connecting to the voice assistant was the Brave browser. Why is Brave doing this and how can stop it from connecting to voice assistant? Thanks.
