Amazon Alexa Crashed On Christmas Day
I daresay that for this Christmas (or should that be last Christmas now) many Amazon Dot Echo (or other Alexa related products) were discovered under the Christmas tree. In fairness, although I got mine much earlier, 2018 was the year in which the assistant officially joined our household. Admittedly, I generally tend to use her mostly as a glorified egg-timer and radio player. She does, however, have her uses.
The crash reportedly occurred at 10 am. A time in which many people would’ve been attempting to user set-up their brand new devices or, at the very least, hook them up to Alexa. It would, of course, also have been bombarded with more than a few questions and requests as people wanted to try it out.
Many were, however, given the response “Sorry, I’m having trouble understanding you right now.”
The crash only occurred for a few hours and is certainly back-up now. It is, however, a testament to just how popular the Amazon product has become. More so, just what a major role it played in yet another Christmas. Amazon might, however, perhaps try and be a little more prepared for next year.
