Picture this... you're home alone, working around the house, watching TV, or eating dinner, then suddenly you hear someone laughing. No, it's not a ghost or someone breaking into your house. It's Amazon's Alexa!!!
Some Alexa users have been posting on social media about hearing an unprompted laugh from their smart speaker devices in the last day. The laugh happens randomly, when nobody is using the device, or in response to request to turn on or off lights. SO CREEPY!!!!
so my mom & I are just sitting in the living room, neither of us said a word & our Alexa lit up and laughed for no reason. she didn’t even say anything, just laughed.— taylor wade (@taylorkatelynne) March 5, 2018
we unplugged her.
Lying in bed about to fall asleep when Alexa on my Amazon Echo Dot lets out a very loud and creepy laugh... there’s a good chance I get murdered tonight.— Gavin Hightower (@GavinHightower) February 26, 2018
So watch out for some awkward laughing if you have an Amazon Alexa!
