Amazon claims Alexa will channel the voices of the dead

Amazon's Alexa devices could soon be able to use the voices of the dead.

The voice assistant will have the ability to speak in the same way as people who have passed away, requiring only a minute of recorded audio in order to construct a whole voice.

It is not confirmed when the feature could arrive.

Amazon said that the feature would not eliminate the "pain of loss", but would "make their memories last".
