Because with phone / VPN it's my choice what happens: I can "limit the damage" or not as I chose without significantly compromising functionality.
But with these things, pretty much everything you say or do becomes public knowledge - even without the consent of your family and visitors.

Technically, in the UK at least, not warning a visitor that Alexa / Google is listening and recording can probably be a criminal offense: Is it illegal to record conversations? - DMA[^] and also almost certainly infringes the Human Rights (privacy) legislation of the EU...
