Google Home just started singing at me out of the blue 😱

At the moment, I'm somewhere which has a Google Home set up, and I was just talking to a family member on the phone. Family member was talking about getting an Echo (think it's the Amazon version of Google Home but not sure?)

Anyway.. just as family member was telling me about the Echo, Google Home suddenly kicks in totally unprompted with a sunny little ukulele intro. She then starts singing - to the tune of Oh My Darline Clementine - something about having to find friends online confused

Has this ever happened to anyone else?! And AIBU to think this is creepy as fuck?

Very creepy. And one of the reasons I won’t get that or Alexa shudders

I read something the other day where neighbours complained and police forced entry into someone's house when Alexa started having a full blast party at 4 am on its own with no one in the house.

My Alexa moaned at me whilst I was watching telly the other day saying ’that’s not nice’. When I checked the log the lying bitch claimed I called her an idiot.

I don't trust her at all.

Bloody Siri had a go at me in a hotel the other day. Phone was on the table not in use, DH and I were sitting on the bed at the other side of the room chatting.

Siri shouted “it’s all about you!”

I’ve never even used Siri. It is super-creepy.

Tonight Alexa started telling us about Chinese street food when we were having an unrelated conversation.
I checked the log and it thinks we said "Alexa open Chineasy".

When I checked the log the lying bitch claimed I called her an idiot.

grin These stories are so weird.

Not that creepy but DH was using google maps as a sat nav the other day and when we got home it said brightly "Welcome home!" Errrr thanks Google!

Gaslighting so and so

Could've been worse. Could've sung the creepy song about watching every move you make.
I'd emigrate.

Paris she just shouted out 'that's not very nice' I didn't say anything to her.

If she starts singing tiptoe through the tulips I'm out of here

Ontheboardwalk Sun 12-Nov-17 23:59:59

This is what she claimed I said

Pariswhenitdrizzles Mon 13-Nov-17 00:01:33

Ontheboard funny you should say it - she actually did!! I asked her to though grin grin I'm shit-scared now that it's stored on her memory though!! If she bursts into it in the middle of the night, I'm outta here!

My alexa does it all the time - it heard the TV and goes of on one or misheard people's voices.

Freaked me out once when I wasn't answering my phone and DO sent a message through Alex's grin her asking me to get some lactofree from the ship was an odd request

Ontheboardwalk Mon 13-Nov-17 00:09:12

Paris you asked her??? Really?? That tune disturbed me before Insidious.

If you hear it in the middle of the night run, just run!! I'll come and collect you and yours

Pariswhenitdrizzles Mon 13-Nov-17 00:14:20

Just thought I'd ask her to put it on as a (creepy af) joke when I was on the phone to the family member, because we both find the song fucking creepy. It's such a creepy song, isn't it? shock

Pariswhenitdrizzles Mon 13-Nov-17 00:15:22

Haha just seen how many times I've written 'creepy' in that post! I guess you could say I like to get my point across grin
