  • Alexa Has Been Freaking Out Amazon Echo Users by Randomly Laughing at Them

Sorry. Amazon's voice-activated "personal assistant" Alexa has been unexpectedly laughing for no apparent reason.

Amazon says it is aware of the issue and working to fix it. The company did not elaborate on how widespread the laugh is.

Amazon says they're looking into what causes this bug, but initial findings say Alexa may be mistakenly hearing the command to laugh which is "Alexa, laugh". Tonight, while sleeping, i closed my eyes and said "Alexa, lamp off". I thought a kid was laughing behind me. Various ambient sounds might be picked up by the device and simply interpreted as voice commands.

"Having an office conversation about pretty confidential stuff and Alexa just laughed".

Amazon recently said that it has launched a fix and explanation for Alexa's laughter.

Among the possible responses, Boulegue said Britain could impose "a more restrictive visa regime for Russians close to power". Defence Secretary Gavin Williamson said Thursday that Russian Federation was "becoming an ever-greater threat".

The company intends to fix the problem by changing the wake phrase to a less-demanding "Alexa, can you laugh?" which it claims will result in less false positives.

Laughs ranged from an evil "muahaha!" to a friendlier "hahaha!" For the past few weeks, Alexa users have been reporting "creepy" laughter emanating from their devices without provocation.

Holy shit, i nearly forgot.

"We got home and, totally unprompted, our Amazon Echo/Alexa started talking". In my opinion it's most likely a demon that has chose to take over Alexa as most demons aim to do. Audio recordings collected by an Alexa device have already been used as evidence in a murder case.

There are a lot of people who are anxious about artificial intelligence taking over the world. "I'd rather it laugh at me tbh", tweeted user @HeyItsKamo.
