Alexa is starting to weird out AmazonEcho users with her laughter ... because she's not laughing with you-she's laughing at you.
The laugh has a female voice but it doesn't resemble the voice of Alexa.
Amazon confirmed that the company is aware of the problem and is working to fix it.
As we mentioned yesterday, there were numerous reports of Alexa randomly laughing on Twitter. Finding nothing, he asked Alexa to repeat the last sound she had made. No, it's not a horror movie's plot, but an actual bug that has been plaguing Amazon Echo devices all over the world and the developers haven't the slightest idea about what's triggering it.
We don't know what percentage of the users who received the random giggles from Alexa actually were close to saying anything like "Alexa, laugh" that it would mistakenly follow the phantom command.
I'm pretty sure I've heard that laugh in Ghost Adventures when they are able to record that voice.
According to an Amazon spokesperson, several customers have been complaining about their Amazon Alexa laughing like insane even though nobody uttered a word in front of over.
Another person heard the giggle at night: "Lying in bed about to fall asleep when Alexa on my Amazon Echo Dot lets out a very loud and creepy laugh", he said.
"We got home and, totally unprompted, our Amazon Echo/Alexa started talking", oneAlexa owner shared.
This is prompting Amazon to change the phrase to 'Alexa, can you laugh?' which is less likely to have false positives. Now, if you want to make Alexa laugh, you will need to say the sentence 'Alexa, can you laugh?' instead of 'Alexa, laugh'.
