On top of that, a parrot is now getting in on the action and causing even more mischief by using Alexa to order items from Amazon.
The African Grey parrot, named Rocco, lives with National Animal Welfare Trust sanctuary worker Marion Wischnewski, at her home in Blewbury, Oxfordshire. He was rehomed from the sanctuary because of his bad language.
Although she was kind enough to give him a new home, she probably didn't anticipate her shopping bills going up after Rocco figured out how to use Alexa to order a variety of things including fruit, veg, ice cream, light bulbs and a kite.
Homeless African grey parrot Rocco was caught ordering strawberries, watermelons and ice-cream off National Animal Welfare Trust worker Marion Wischnewski's Amazon Alexa device.
African Grey parrots are well known for their ability to mimic speech so this shouldn't come as too much of a surprise, but it's proving a problem for Marion, who has to constantly check if he has ordered anything.
