Amazon has, however, taken note of the apparently startling issue.

Flu season still going strong
PHOENIX - This year's flu season has been one of the worst in modern day history - and it is not over yet. The restrictions, which prohibit children younger than 12 from visiting, remains in effect.


Since the incident, dozens of other Alexa users have reported of the laughing instances.

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. One Reddit user said that Alexa laughed after the command, "Alexa, patio off", which could sound vaguely like, "Alexa, how do you laugh?" I thought a kid was laughing behind me. If this had happened to me when I was home alone, I would have pissed my trousers. "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.
