“Alexa, what is the weather like in Seattle?”




In what appeared to be a real-life version of Amazon’s funny Super Bowl commercial in which Alexa loses her voice, several Amazon Echo customers took to social media Friday, March 2, to report that the popular voice assistant wasn’t working properly. The problem appeared to be widespread, with the biggest reports coming from the West Coast and Northeast. It appeared that people could still get answers to their burning questions via the Alexa app, but not using their voice.

As you can imagine, Twitter users responded with confusion, frustration, and of course, lots of jokes. Here are just a few of our favorite Tweets:

@AmazonHelp, the AWS Service Health Dashboard says that the N. Virginia server issues have been &quot;resolved,&quot; but Alexa on my Echo/Dots is still down. I see I&#39;m not alone in this–can you issue Twitter updates so we know what&#39;s going on? @Amazon #Alexa #Echo

Seems that @amazon Alexa services are down. Shocking that an all knowing all hearing bodiless voice connected by invisible wires to millions of people is having issues. Skynet will soon be back online &amp; destroying us all! Also, I can&#39;t turn my lights on w/ my voice and I&#39;m sad.

Apparently Amazon is having across the board #Alexa outages. How soon until Fox News blames this on #AlecBaldwin?

All my #Alexa #echo devices are offline.

Yes, #Alexa @Amazon, I can confirm you have a severe case of laryngitis. Where did your voice go?
Please get better soon! We were just getting acquainted… :)
