Amazon's Alexa Crashed in Europe on Christmas Day

Amazon’s Alexa crashed on Christmas Day

Amazon on Wednesday said that tens of millions of people have signed up for its Prime membership either by making paid service or on a trial basis.

Items shipped with FREE One-Day Shipping or FREE Same-Day Delivery in Canada increased over 100% this holiday season. Still, Amazon, which dominates e-commerce in the USA, has relied on the growth of its Prime members, who pay $119 a year for the service. "We are thrilled that in the USA alone, more than one billion items shipped for free this holiday with Prime".

L.O.L. Surprise! Dolls, Exploding Kittens: Original Edition, and Cards Against Humanity: Canadian Edition were among the best-selling toys and games in Canada. Carhartt clothing and accessories were top-sellers in the fashion category, and Bose QuietComfort Wireless Headphones were popular purchases in the electronics category. The e-commerce segment led this growth, having seen online sales jumping a massive 19.1 percent from previous year, according to Mastercard's data. In addition, Amazon sold a record number of products such as iRobot Roomba 690, Ring Video Doorbell, and Amazon smart Plug, which are smart home devices. Amazon has an estimated 75 percent share of the smart speaker as of November while Google LLC and Apple Inc. account for most of the rest. On the bright side of things, the AI assistant started working after two hours of being down and people got to enjoy their newly received Christmas present. UPS expects return packages to hit 1.3 million on January 3. The app's developer is listed as "One World Software". A look at Outage.Report's Alexa map for Christmas Day also shows Amazon's virtual assistant struggled in the U.K., Germany, and Italy. It delivered eight times as many reminders this year as it did last year, and it even provided three times as many recipes as it did last year. Customer reviews, 1-Click shopping, personalized recommendations, Prime, Fulfillment by Amazon, AWS, Kindle Direct Publishing, Kindle, Fire tablets, Fire TV, Amazon Echo, and Alexa are some of the products and services pioneered by Amazon.
