Deezer music streaming service now supports Alexa voice control

Amazon Alexa now supports music streaming from Deezer

According to a new piece by The Verge, Amazon is now working to fix a bug with its Alexa-enabled devices that has caused them to creepily laugh, completely unprompted.

Amazon has since acknowledged the issue amid a stream of social media users bringing attention to it.

Another user responded to the comment to say, "Holy crap this happened to me and I [thought] I was alone".

22 in which his Amazon Echo Dot makes a laughing sound through an attached speaker.

Amazon confirmed on Wednesday that devices enabled with its smart assistant are emitting disturbing cackles.

The robot wars are coming, and Alexa will have the last laugh.

According to user reports online, Alexa appears to be laughing without being prompted.

Five More Seasonal Flu Deaths
Meanwhile, information reported by doctor's offices and hospitals indicated the number of new cases continued declining. That type of flu overtook influenza A last month as the most common type in circulation in the state.

Amazon can push updates to the voice service automatically.

Alexa's spontaneous laughter has been occurring for at least a couple of weeks, as the Twitter user @CaptHandlebar shared a short video of the device's automated chuckle on February 22.

"We're aware of this and working to fix it", said Amazon.

"There's a good chance I get murdered tonight".

"I was trying to turn off some lights and they kept turning back on". Since Echo devices are always listening for their wake words, they record and save clips to the cloud every time they hear something that they think Alexa needs to respond to.

One user suggested the issue likely stemmed from a misheard command or conversation that Alexa interpreted as a command.
