Smart speakers are growing in popularity daily. According to owners of ALEXA...the smart speaker may be getting the last laugh...on you!
Many Amazon Echo owners recently that claim ALEXA...has out of the blue just started laughing without any prompt. In many cases, there's no chime before she (the device) starts laughing.
For example, Alexa would normally answer a question or request. One user even claimed he was in bed trying to fall asleep and Alexa just started laughing! Another user complained he was having a serious work conversation at home and Alexa just creepily started cracking up. Apparently, she has a bunch of different laughs -- some very human sounding and some extremely witch-like -- almost a cackling. Both Reddit and Twitter are filled with people sharing similar encounters with what seems to be Alexa messing with her users. Yikes!
Some people believe ALEXA can listen to their conversations (enter Twilight Zone theme here).
