We all are experiencing or even hearing from someone who uses Alexa AI that it starts laughing for no reason, none asked for.
Amazon says that it knows why it’s been happening and is working to fix the problem. Amazon emailed a statement saying that “In rare circumstances, Alexa can mistakenly hear the phrase ‘Alexa, laugh,’” when other words are spoken. “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.’”
The company also said that instead of simply laughing when asked, the digital assistant, which is accessible through its line of Echo and Fire devices, will first acknowledge the request, saying, “Sure, I can laugh.”
