Porn instead of music: Video brings Amazon speakers into disrepute!

A child requests music, Alexa plays porn.

Amazon’s voice recognition speakers Echo and Echo Dot are considered outstanding – however, the system is not immune to pitfalls as shown in a video. Instead of the requested music, the shocked family was confronted with porn.

Oops! A YouTube video, which has been available on the internet for a few days, proves that voice control has limits. The short clip shows a young child has requested a children’s song using Amazon’s speaker Alexa Echo Dot. The unclear pronunciation causes uncertainty and suddenly the speaker plays porn instead of the requested music.

In a statement to Business Insider, Amazon explains that the mistake has been corrected. In the future, it should also be possible to configure the loudspeaker in such a way that such problems cannot occur. Amazon has apologised to the family.
