Is Amazon Alexa laughing at you?

Alexa should we worry about Amazon's layoffs

If you want Amazon's Alexa digital assistant to do something for you all you need to do is say "Hey, Alexa" and it will wake up and start listening for a command. Now, Amazon has a new feature called "Follow-up Mode" that's created to make exchanges like that feel a lot more natural. If the device is ready for a follow-up question, the blue indicator light will flash, thereby indicating to the user that he/she can ask the next question. The blue ring on your Alexa device of choice will light up during these five seconds to indicate that she's listening. "She didn't even say anything, just laughed".

To be clear, this doesn't mean that Alexa can handle multiple commands at once.

Finally, say: "Alexa, open My Workouts".

Once you're done, Alexa gives you the next exercise in the program. ALEXA: "OK, the heat is set to 68". Amazon has now made it easier to give follow-up commands to Alexa and speakers powered by the assistant will now be able to listen to back-to-back commands. They can end their conversation with Alexa by simply saying "thank you", "stop", "cancel", or "go to sleep".

European Game Called Off After Owner Stormed Pitch With Gun
The match was initially halted by match officials, although they later chose to call it off after a two-hour delay. It is the second time in less than two months that PAOK's Toumba Stadium has been the setting of disturbances.

Several reports emerged online of Alexa-enabled devices emitting a ghostly cackle.

Scroll down to Follow-Up Mode and use the toggle to turn it on.

Alexa will not listen for a follow-up question if the Echo device is playing music or audiobooks, or if you are on a call through the Echo.

The first cases were reported in "smart" loudspeakers that feature Alexa (which is on various devices) and from which the robotic laughs came out without cause, which in some users were reminiscent of a witch ... witch.
