Did you know, for example, that there is an assignment called "The listeners" that lets you know that he is always there, listening and watching? Or that Alexa can make crazy animal noises and have an eerie smile? For whatever reason, these functions are part of the Amazon Echo device and the Alexa app.
Read on for the most bizarre things that your Amazon Echo can do.
The listeners always listen and watch
This is super creepy, so if you are home alone and easily panic, skip it. If you say "Alexa, ask the listeners", Alexa starts saying things like "We always listen" and continues to talk in a disturbing way with uncomfortable pauses. You can continue with a conversation with the voice assistant, but it only gets stranger.
Alexa told me that "they" are watching over me even while I'm sleeping, which is enough for me to disconnect the Echo and call it is a night. When you are ready to stop talking with the scary bone, just say "stop". It will say, "We are finally sorry that you are filled with irritation. And now you must leave us." Thanks for the nightmares, Amazon.
Note that this is just a program and that Amazon is not really watching you.when you speak to Alexa to improve the response settings.
Your Amazon Echo can sneeze
Achoo! Time to dust your echo because he is sneezing in a storm. But wait, it's not a living thing, so it shouldn't be sneezing. Just ask: "Alexa, can you sneeze?" and it says, "You're lucky, I can sneeze on command. Ahoo!" The sneezing is not very convincing.
There is also a skill called I Just Sneezed that you can enable. If you & # 39; Alexa, I just sneezed & # 39; says, the voice assistant says & # 39; Bless you & # 39 ;, or & # 39; Say it, don't spray it & # 39 ;.
It won't spell everything for you
If you can't remember how to spell a word, such as & # 39; hippo & # 39 ;, Alexa is here to help you. But it's strange that the bot knows about the "spell icup" trick (eye-see-you-pee). If you ask Alexa for & # 39; icup & # 39; to spell, it says & # 39; I prefer not to answer & # 39 ;. But if you ask to spell something like "rose gold", it says "r-o-s-e space g-o-l-d". So why don't they spell "icup" such as "I space c-u-p"?
Alexa will not spell or saybecause it "should not say anything rude."
Alexa snores to help you fall asleep
Yes, Alexa can snore. I'm not sure who enjoys falling asleep with snoring sounds. It seems that it is difficult to fall asleep because of whimsical sounds. Perhaps it is the intention to reassure you if you are only sniffing or maybe it is for people who cannot sleep without the sound of snoring. Anyway, it's just weird. Try it out by saying, "Alexa, play snoring sounds."
