Me habló - I spoke or I was told?...

according to google translate "me habló" is "I spoke"...but if I understand correctly "me" in Spanish is more like "to me"...as in, I was told... or more literally "it was spoken to me". Is that it?

Correct.

Me habló = she/he spoke to me

I spoke = (yo) hablé

It was spoken to me = se me habló

I was told = se me dijo
