Alexa really loses its voice as Amazon Web services suffer brief outage

Update 03/2/18: AWS services and Amazon Alexa functionality are now back online.

It looks like Amazon’s clever Alexa Super Bowl ad where Alexa, the company’s voice-activated assistant, loses its voice, has come to life.

Alexa has gone quiet unintended today as a regional outage impacts the retail giant’s services. This has caused Alexa to become unresponsive with Echo products, as well as other devices that support the assistant — like the Ecobee4, for example.

If your Alexa device is affected by the issue a red ring should displayed on the top of the device. MobileSyrup has reached out to Amazon for details on when Alexa will be up and running again.
