Alexa Tells 10 Year Old To Put Coin In Plug Socket

Amazon has updated its Alexa voice assistant after it “challenged” a 10-year-old girl to touch a coin to the prongs of a half-inserted plug.

The suggestion came after the girl asked Alexa for a “challenge to do”.

“Plug in a phone charger about halfway into a wall outlet, then touch a penny to the exposed prongs,” the smart speaker said.

Amazon said it fixed the error as soon as the company became aware of it.

Metals conduct electricity and inserting them into live electrical sockets can cause electric shocks, fires, and other damage.
