Alexa tells 10-year-old girl to touch penny against half plugged in plug

Amazon has “fixed” its Alexa voice assistant after it told a 10-year-old girl to touch a penny to the prongs of a plugged-in phone charger.

Kristin Livdahl, the girl’s mother, said it happened when the US family asked the Echo smart speaker for physical challenges to do because the weather was bad outside.
