With Amazon’s Alexa down, memes flood Twitter
Amazon’s Alexa has been down for some time now and without any clarification from the tech giant, users are taking to Twitter to share memes.
Alexa has become a part of everyone’s life and it seems difficult for many to carry on with their usual tasks when its servers are down. Especially since Alexa was also designed to control things like turning lights on and off, changing the temperature and the like, it seems understandable that some people suffer.
Several users complain that Alexa is down
Social media has been filled with reports of Amazon’s Alexa and Echo malfunctioning. Some people have noted that when they tried to say a common word, Alexa responded by stating that she had trouble understanding.
Meanwhile, others have noted that their Alexa is completely unresponsive and just flashes the blue light.
At this time, Amazon has not responded to these reports and it is unclear exactly what happened.
Users share memes amid outage
While some people waited for Amazon to fix the problem, others took to Twitter to share memes. Here’s a look at some of the best to date.
A few things to try and fix Alexa
We all understand how difficult it can be when Alexa stops responding. According to Makeuseof.com, there are some things users can try to get Alexa to try to work again.
- Check your Wi-Fi connection: Sometimes Alexa is unable to respond properly due to poor WiFi connection. Make sure your internet connection is working properly when Alexa is unresponsive.
- Check the microphone button: Alexa has a physical microphone button on it. If the button is pressed, it means Alexa can’t hear what you’re saying. Make sure the button is off.
- Restart Alexa: Sometimes the mere thought of rebooting the device is just enough to get your Alexa working.
