The mystery of Alexa's eerie laugh has been solved

Amazon has figured out why your Alexa smart speaker is laughing at you
With follow-up mode, users can give Alexa commands or requests back to back, without having to say "Alexa" for each one.
Even though Alexa will now wait a little longer, the digital assistant can still only respond to one command at a time. Once that fades, it means Alexa has returned to sleep mode and will only be accessed again via the wake word.
The company noted that it also intends to change Alexa's response from simply laughter to a notification saying it's going to laugh, followed by laughter.
There are potential problems here, though. This is signified by the blue ring on an Echo speaker or other Echo device staying lit up. For instance, this follow-up mode only works when Alexa is "confident" the second command is not just background noise from a conversation or a program on TV. You can enable Follow-Up Mode on your device by opening the Alexa app and navigating to the Settings menu.
