With the holidays over, there’s a high chance that you or someone you know may have received a new, intelligent home assistant. But as handy as the new Amazon Alexa and Google Home machines are, there are still some drawbacks. Like, making us feel as though the machines getting a bit too smart. Cue the scary sci-fi music.

According to Twitter user @AllisonCalhoun1, her aunt had both devices in the same room and asked Google Home whether it liked Amazon Alexa. And let’s just say that the two devices started talking to each other.

So, not only do we now have to worry about the competing companies going to war with each other through their machines, but we also have to worry about the machines banning together to rule humanity. No big deal…

Considering the devices are programmed to learn about its users, including their habits, likes and dislikes, we probably should have been a bit freaked out even before this interaction. The machines are becoming so advanced that they can now distinguish between different voices, and are learning how to cater their responses to the specific person asking the question. Cool, but also, kinda scary.

To distract us from the coming AI world domination, Allison’s tweet set off a thread of hilarious and equally freaky responses from Twitter. One user said Alexa even responded to a joke without being prompted.


Another user tested out the Alexa/Google question and found a similar response.


Others have experienced equally creepy events with their home AI devices.


Creepy x 1000000.

The only thing left to do is wait for someone to make a horror movie about Alexa and Google Home.


The plot practically writes itself.


Maybe these intelligent home devices really are too good to be true.
