People love the Amazon Echo, but more and more people are buying the smaller $50 Echo Dot, which can do all the same things as the Echo voice-controlled smarthome device but also be plugged into other speaker systems to take advantage of the (presumably) better audio quality. In fact, the Echo Dot has been the top-selling device on Amazon.com since November 1.
As more and more people buy into the Echo family, they are also learning the nuances of owning these types of devices — specifically, that they can’t always understand you and don’t always do what you want them to do.
One family learned this the hard way: Watch this 24-second video of a very young boy politely asking the Echo Dot to play him a song, and watch the Echo Dot not understand a word he says. (Warning: Audio NSFW)
If you have young kids, it’s probably a good idea to supervise them if they want to try out an Amazon Echo or similar devices like it. Or, at the very least, have a camera around.
Update: An Amazon spokesperson issued the following statement to Business Insider: "This issue has been fixed, and we are working to build additional restrictions to prevent this from happening in the future. We have also contacted the customer to apologize."
