In conjunction with iCloud issues throughout the day, Amazon’s Alexa is also experiencing intermittent outages for users. As noted by numerous users on Twitter, the Alexa outage has been plaguing the voice assistant over the course of the entire day.

Judging by tweets from affected users, Alexa first started experiencing connectivity issues this afternoon, but those problems were seemingly resolved for most users. Now, however, the connectivity issues have seemingly made a widespread comeback, with affected users again taking to Twitter to voice their frustrations.
When attempting to give Alexa a command, the virtual assistant simply says “Sorry, something went wrong” as a response. Amazon has yet to address the issues, and it’s unclear when service might be restored completely.
This isn’t the first time an Alexa outage has affected users. Earlier this year, a widespread Amazon Web Services outage took down Alexa, as well as many other web products and services.
Earlier today, we reported that a handful of iCloud services were suffering from connectivity issues. Some 5 hours later, those issues still don’t appear to be fully resolved, at least according to Apple’s system status page.
