Amazon Is Working On Fixing Alexa’s Strange, Spontaneous Laughter

One user reported, “After the third request, Alexa stopped responding and instead did an evil laugh.”

Amazon Echo device users have been getting creeped out lately because their Alexa voice-assistant has reportedly started laughing spontaneously after certain requests. It sounds like something straight out of a horror film.

An Amazon representatives stated, “In rare circumstances, Alexa can mistakenly hear the phrase ‘Alexa, laugh.'”

They also reported, “We are changing that phrase to be ‘Alexa, can you laugh?’ which is less likely to have false positives, and we are disabling the short utterance ‘Alexa, laugh.’ We are also changing Alexa’s response from simply laughter to, ‘Sure, I can laugh,’ followed by laughter.”

They are working on it, however, some of these reports about Alexa laughing without any command given are too good not to tell.

One user posted, “It was really creepy,”  when Alexa started laughing during an office conversation.
