Alexa Owners Report Creepy Laugh Coming from Device, Possessed Devices?

Owners of Amazon Echo devices with the voice-enabled assistant Alexa have been pretty much creeped out of their damn minds recently. People are reporting that the bot sometimes spontaneously starts laughing — which is basically a bloodcurdling nightmare.

Editor Note: My own personal assistant “Google Mini” lately has been talking for no reason. Just saying ‘Gibberish’.

I now wonder if these devices are possessed. They do listen all the time.

“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.’ We are also changing Alexa’s response from simply laughter to ‘Sure, I can laugh,’ followed by laughter,” the company said.

OK, but what about when Alexa laughs unprompted, as some people have reported?

One person who was on the verge of falling into a peaceful slumber described hearing a “very loud and creepy laugh” from his Echo Dot. “There’s a good chance I get murdered tonight,” he tweeted.
