Amazon Alexa Now Supports Deezer and ‘Never-Ending’ Personal Playlists
     
     
              Mar 6 2018

In the past few days, some users of Echo home speakers running Amazon's Alexa voice-based digital assistant have reported hearing unusual laughing noises at random. "So my mom & I are just sitting in the living room, neither of us said a word & our Alexa lit up and laughed for no reason", tweeted one woman, Taylor Wade, on 5 March.

Reports of the laughing Alexas first surfaced last month when one Twitter user reported on an Echo Dot that randomly started laughing without being prompted. Some people said that they thought it was an actual person laughing in their home, which can undoubtedly be scary if they were home alone.

"So Alexa made a decision to laugh randomly while I was in the kitchen", the user CaptHandlebar wrote.

When the service is enabled you can hear today's headlines from the Liverpool Echo by saying 'Alexa, what's in the news?' or 'Alexa, what's my flash briefing?'

They also seem likely to damage USA allies such as Canada more than Trump's ultimate rival China. If Canadians are hoping to be spared from American tariffs , they may be disappointed.

"I will call "Alexa" and the light turns on and goes off immediately after, giving me no time to say anything". The laugh doesn't sound like the machine-voice Alexa has, it sounds like an actual human female.

We're very excited to launch Deezer with Alexa in 66 countries and across a wide range of Alexa supported devices. "There's a good chance I get murdered tonight".

Its voice assistant Alexa is activated on Echo smart speakers through voice commands.
