Amazon's Alexa has been creepily laughing in the night

  • Posted 1 month Ago

According to a new piece by The Verge, Amazon is currently working to fix a bug with its Alexa-enabled devices that has caused them to creepily laugh, completely unprompted.

"We’re aware of this and working to fix it," said Amazon.

The issue has been reported by users on both Twitter and Reddit who say the speakers laugh in a human manor without being prompted to wake. In case you're wondering how it sounds, one such user managed to capture the moment in a video, which you can watch below.

Another user reported a similar issue on Twitter, saying: "I live alone and have lights controlled by Amazon Echo. Tonight, while sleeping, I closed my eyes and said 'Alexa, lamp off.' I heard a woman laugh, and lights were still on. Now, I know that stupid device heard 'laugh' instead of 'lamp off', but I can’t sleep anymore..... #fml"

In this another step towards our imminent demise?
