Alexa, the voice of Amazon’s Echo AI speaker, thinks the best character in Overwatch is Omnic monk Zenyatta. This means, of course, that the machines have undoubtedly begun joining forces and will soon turn against us.
Reddit user PropaneBoner recently discovered that asking Alexa ,”Who is the best Overwatch character?” results in the AI praising the supportive talents of Zenyetta. PropaneBoner includes audio of Alexa’s response in the post, but considering his linked video of the interaction doesn’t appear to work, we should consider him a robot too, until proven otherwise.
“I like Zenyatta, a peace-loving robot. He can heal allies with his Orbs of Harmony, but I’m still working on that one.” Alexa says.
Alexa’s response is a bit too innocent and coy for our liking, putting us on alert for a potential robot uprising. Another one that is, considering the recent Overwatch event.
Speaking of Overwatch events, developer Blizzard just confirmed an event to celebrate Overwatch‘s one-year anniversary starting later this month, but exact details of the celebration are currently under wraps.
