Alexa's Laugh: Amazon Is Working on a Fix for Random Noises

Deezer music streaming service now supports Alexa voice control

Hey, Alexa, what exactly do you look like?

Amazon says it has heard about the issue and is working on a solution.

Amazon has since acknowledged the issue amid a stream of social media users bringing attention to it.

Amazon can push updates to the voice service automatically.

China: Govt sets trillion yuan military budget
Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats said at a hearing in Washington, D.C. titled "Worldwide Threats", Reuters reports . China has set a GDP growth target of 6.5 per cent in 2018 - unchanged from 2017 and in line with expectations.

Another Twitter user reported that Alexa began laughing in the middle of an office conversation: "I asked why she laughed and she said, 'Sorry, I am not sure'".

The Echo is alleged to be a time-saving device, with users able to give Alexa commands such as telling it to give them the current weather, play a song, or deliver the news. One of the users claimed that Alexa also refused to complete commands. Since Echo devices are always listening for their wake words, they record and save clips to the cloud every time they hear something that they think Alexa needs to respond to. "I still get chills". "It sounded like a real person". Some people said that they thought it was an actual person laughing in their home, which can undoubtedly be scary if they were home alone.

Reports first surfaced last month when a Twitter user said he was "freaked out" when Alexa started laughing randomnly through his JBL Bluetooth speaker paired with the Echo Dot.

Owners have reported hearing odd laughing noises at random.
