Is Alexa Spying on You?

Is Alexa Spying on You?

Amazon’s Echo has sold nearly 11 million units as of the release up until The end of January. Every product has their quirks with speech recognition, however this one is a bit odd… Videos have been surfacing all around the web where people have been asking Alexa (the echos speech assistant manager) some rather interesting questions. For example, some one asks the echo, “Alexa, are you recording this conversation?” Then it responds with nothing and turns off. You can ask Alexa just about anything and she will answer. You can also ask, “Alexa, are you sending this conversation to the NSA,” and it will respond the same way by shutting off. If you have any viewpoint on this topic please leave a comment.
