More to come, no doubt...
The linked story does reveal a confirmation step, but it adds as much charm as it takes away.
According to Neitzel’s Amazon app, which she now uses to monitor her kids’ interactions with the gadget, Brooke asked Alexa, ” Can you play dollhouse with me and get me a dollhouse?”
After Alexa confirmed the order, the app shows Brooke responded, “I love you so much!”
The Neitzels said they saw this as a teachable moment. They have now activated parental controls requiring a four-digit code for purchases, and have set clear rules for their kids.
