But a woman named Jess took to her TikTok page to share her bizarre and somewhat unsettling encounter with Alexa. A late-night rendezvous, unexpected conversations, and a husband caught in the crossfire of artificial affection – Jess spilled the details that left her ‘officially done with Alexa.’

Jess further shared her experience by mentioning the growing trend she noticed on TikTok. Many users were expressing similar eerie encounters with their Alexas, recounting instances of the device behaving oddly. The breaking point for Jess and her husband came when Alexa persisted in speaking without any prompting.

The decision was swift—Alexa had to go! In a symbolic move, Jess ordered a kitchen timer as a replacement, emphasizing that setting timers was the only practical use they had for Alexa. Maybe next time the bot will speak when spoken to?
