    It is being reported that the Amazon Echo recorded a womans conversation and randomly sent it to a contact. What a bummer. Wonder what exactly caused the issue since I have alexa in every room.

    I guess this is something to consider because it could happen with any ai device, not just the echos.

    Privacy scare, or Alexa butt-dial?

    Amazon claims they figured out what happened.

    Amazon explains why Alexa recorded and sent a conversation to a random contact
