Alexa is a name of Amazon's Echo Dot which is a smart speaker. I have an Echo Dot 2 at home and it is cool. Lately some users said their speakers will have creepy laugh randomly at night. But I haven't experienced this creepy random laugh at night yet. It may be a bug. Amazon said it will be fixed when you upgrade it.

They want you to pay for it to stop?

People just unplug it if this happens.

I've always fancied one of these. I don't know if the creepy laugh would put me off but if they want you to upgrade they're trying to get more money out of you.

I think it is just a system upgrade.

@youless I could probably cope with that then. I don't think the laugh would bother me too much.

@sprite1950 It will be different that it made the creepy laugh at night suddenly.

I don't own one so I don't think I'll ever hear that creepy laugh.

@youless Yeah I read that from your discussion. But I'm fine with what I have. Nothing can convince me at the moment to get that one.

I also heard an user asked Alexa to lamp off, but Alexa didn't take any action but create creepy laugh Perhaps it wants to have a rebellion

it's probably being hacked and they just aren't saying. people were doing that to wifi enabled baby monitors for awhile.

I think it is very likely.

I heard about that on the news last night. I do not have or have a need for one.
