Over the past year, Amazon Alexa has made the headlines with some of the creepiest things it said. The situation is far from being over, as the smart assistant came up with another strange thing to say. A man from California watched as his Amazon Echo paused his smart TV to utter a disquieting sentence.
Amazon Alexa uttered a really creepy sentence
Another strange situation came on the list of creepy events involving Amazon Alexa. The ‘victim’ of this incident received his Echo speaker in 2016 but didn’t use it much for its designated purpose. However, he thought he could still talk to it randomly.
No strange events have happened so far until, on June 18th, he got terrified. As he was watching TV on his Amazon Prime account, his Echo speaker paused the program to utter a weird sentence. Afterwards, Amazon Alexa said “Every time I close my eyes, all I see is people dying.”
The speaker uttered the sentence on a perfectly normal tone and then said no more words. However, the incident was enough to scare its owner. He had no idea what could have prompted it to say this. When he asked Amazon Alexa to repeat the sentence, it couldn’t do it as it didn’t remember any such incident. Also, since it happened spontaneously, he didn’t have the time to record it.
Experts say these are only glitches
However, the experts are saying we shouldn’t worry. It’s not the first time when Amazon Alexa encounters some strange but funny problems, so this might have been just a glitch. In this case, they said Alexa might have recorded the sentence from TV and then chose to play it at a random moment.
Amazon Alexa has quite a long history with glitches that caused it to utter random phrases. For instance, in March, the smart assistant started laughing at its users for no reason. Then, in May, it recorded a conversation and then sent it to a contact in the owner’s address list. However, the creators said people should have no reason to worry about the speaker.
