After a video of the its virtual assistant going silent in response to the question “Alexa, are you connected to the CIA?” went viral Thursday, Amazon called the issue a “technical glitch” in a statement.
“This was a technical glitch which we have fixed,” Amazon said in a statement.
Now, when prompted, Alexa should say, “No, I work for Amazon.”
Before the fix, the Echo went silent when asked if it was connected to the CIA.
