I was pursuing the internet yesterday and I stumbled upon a story from Buzzfeed that made me laugh hysterically.
Apparently, Amazon Alexa Devices are freaking people out by spontaneously bursting into creepy laughter.
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
Having an office conversation about pretty confidential stuff and Alexa just laughed. Anybody else ever have that?— David Woodland (@DavidSven) March 1, 2018
It didn't chime as if we had accidentally triggered her to wake. She simply just laughed. It was really creepy.
This kind of thing is why I don't own one yet. This, and the fact that I can't afford one...but mostly things like this! Read more about Alexa's creepy laugh, and even hear it for yourself here!
