Reports: Amazon’s Alexa updated after telling child to use penny on live plug

Amazon says it’s addressed an issue with its Alexa voice assistant after a child was challenged to touch a live plug with a penny, according to multiple reports.

The BBC reports that a 10-year-old girl asked Alexa for a challenge to do. The device responded with: “Plug in a phone charger about halfway into a wall outlet, then touch a penny to the exposed prongs.”

The child’s mother, Kristin Livdahl, would tweet about the incident. She said the Alexa device claimed it had found the challenge online.
