Mere days after Amazon Echo experienced technical difficulties, a new technical malfunction has owners a bit unnerved. It may sound like something out of a cheesy sci-fi movie, but people are reporting that Alexa has been breaking out in laughter without being prompted.
One woman reported that when she asked Amazon Alexa to turn off the light, the virtual assistant laughed. Another person went onto Twitter and said that Alexa broke out in laughter during an office meeting. An Echo Dot user said that she was trying to fall asleep when Alexa randomly started laughing.
Amazon is currently working on the issue. They are investigating why the Echo devices are becoming active without being commanded.
Readers, are you an Amazon Echo owner? Did you experience this malfunction? Let me know in the comments below.
