And you then get an email and a chance to cancel the order. But yeah, the main issue is it reacts to people saying Alexa on TV, just like Google Home, Search, Assistant react to saying OK Google.Ben Reese – 2017-01-07 16:10:12-0500There’s really no reason these devices can’t recognize specific voices and have permissions based on those voices. My phone responds to my “ok Google”, but nobody else’s. Wade Burrell – 2017-01-09 11:35:22-0500Alixe please order me a lamberghini
