Another Twitter user @taylorkatelynne disclosed that his mother and himself were just sitting in the living room and Alexa accidentally got activated and laughed. the speaker initiated the laugh without any commands from the user.

In a statement released to the press, Amazon revealed that Alexa can easily be mistaken the phrase “Alexa, laugh”. The company is currently working to disable the command and changing it with something liked “Alexa, can you laugh?” Moreover, Amazon will also modify the response. Instead of directly laughing after the command, Alexa will first say “sure, I can laugh” followed by the laughing command. We tested the functionality and Amazon had indeed issued the fix.
