Streaming music through Deezer on Alexa devices is starting to roll out to users from today, though this will be a gradual rollout so it's possible not all users will see the availability immediately.
I was manually turning the volume down using the buttons on my echo dot and it started laughing like she was being tickled. "So my mom & I are just sitting in the living room, neither of us said a word & our Alexa lit up and laughed for no reason", tweeted one woman, Taylor Wade, on 5 March.More news: Jimmy Kimmel: My Tweet Got More Likes Than Trump's Tweet
The Seattle-based company didn't say when the fix would be deployed. This is not an isolated issue either - multiple people are having their hearts tested with Alexa's creepy, unpredictable laughter.
Amazon customers aren't laughing about a terrifying new glitch affecting some voice-command gadgets. "After the third request, Alexa stopped responding and instead did an evil laugh", the user wrote. It sounded like a real person. Users can simply say, "Alexa, play Flow", to launch the personalized playlist.
And this is why I'll never become so lazy that I can't get up to flip a switch myself. If this had happened to me when I was home alone, I would have pissed my trousers.
