Reports on social media started around a fortnight ago and they all seem to follow a pattern, an evil laugh and some sort of disobedience, such as failing to follow an order or flashing lights. You can ask Alexa to play rock music, hip hop, alternative and more thanks to Alexa's ability to recognize 18 different moods and 74 different genres.
Another user reported a similar issue on Twitter, saying: "I live alone and have lights controlled by Amazon Echo".
Additional users complained of the same problem in the ensuing days, including one who claimed his Alexa went off as he was dozing off to sleep. The device is created to respond to requests and questions from user, and functions as a radio and alarm as well.
"The laugh wasn't in the Alexa voice". Was he afraid? "There's a good chance I get murdered tonight", he added. "It sounded like a real person".
"I thought a kid was laughing behind me", the person said in the tweet. With Alexa voice control being added as a new feature, Deezer will be available to listen to on Amazon Echo devices, Sonos One, UE Blast and Megablast speakers and any other speaker that supports Alexa voice control.
Owners have reported hearing unusual laughing noises at random.
