The voice assistant from Amazon is very scary and suddenly laughs 🙉

Users of “smart” speakers with Alexa’s voice assistant from Amazon started complaining about a terrible laugh. The device can publish it suddenly, for example right in the middle of the night.

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 tonigh

“I lay in bed and was already falling asleep when Alexa laughed very loudly and crookedly. There is a good chance that they will kill me tonight. “

The owners of voice assistants found that their speakers can perceive individual phrases or even sounds like a “how do you laugh” command, causing a laugh at the device.

“I tried to turn off the light, but he continued to turn back on. After the third request Alexa stopped responding and in exchange she laughed spitefully not in her own voice. She sounded like a real person. Next was my wife, and only she could insert [extra sounds]. I still have the creepy / / “God shit, I also had this happen, although I was alone at home. Now I will write more “/” It turned out that the phrase “turn off the patio” sounds the same as “how you laugh.” Three or four variants of laughter are sewn into it, and the most crooked one fell out to me. I’m so glad that my house is not obsessed with ghosts (at least, as far as I know) “

Journalists from BuzzFeed tried to reproduce Alexa’s chuckle: directly ask her a command that provokes the reproduction of the pre-recorded laughter.

Other users talked about several other situations in which the home column suddenly activated and frightened its owners.

Having an office conversation about pretty confidential stuff and Alexa just laughed. Anybody else ever have that?

It didn’t chime as if we had accidentally triggered her to wake. She simply just laughed. It was really creepy.

“I was talking about confidential things in the office, and Alexa just laughed. Has anyone ever had this? She did not make an activation sound, as if we accidentally woke her up. She just laughed. It was really crooked. “

Last night I was lying in bed waiting for sleep, my Alexa says, “ sorry I was miles away, it’s nice to meet somebody from the past” erm creepy

“Last night I lay in bed and tried to sleep when Alexa said” I’m sorry that I was so far away, it’s great to meet someone from the past. ” Uh, creep. “

I swear on my life I was just lying in bed and out of NOWHERE Alexa just goes “here’s a station you may like” and proceeds to play Welcome To The Black Parade. I feel called the fuck out.

“I swear by life, I just lay in bed and out of nowhere Alexa said” Here’s the station that you might like “and turned on [the song of My Chemical Romance] Welcome To The Black Parade. It seems I cried out all ***** [at all]. “
