Blimey.  The Down Detector site has down reports coming in from All over America, New Zealand, South America, Canada, Israel, starting about 7:30pm.   Imagine this happening when we use Alexa to control taxi drones?  

 

'Alexa, change course and take me  to the Viaduct.'

 

'I'm sorry, I  am having trouble understanding right now.'

Simple one - have you rebooted your router?

 

I'm not having any issues with my Echo's. Alexa still doesn't understand my accent as usual.

Hi Michael.  It came back on line at 7:55 our time, or thereabouts.  Looks like a world wide event from the comment locations on Downtime.com
