Amazon’s digital assistant, Alexa, might soon be able to detect when you’re sick. According to a report by The Telegraph, the company has patented a version of Alexa that will not only detect when the user is ill, but also try and sell medicines. In an patent image posted with a report, it shows that the assistant would be able to detect any coughing or sniffles when speaking to an Alexa-enabled device like the Echo. Alexa first suggests a recipe for chicken soup, and then offers to order some cough drops from Amazon.
