An amusing video has emerged of a two-year-old girl trying to get Alexa to play a song for her, but it is an unfortunate case of communication breakdown.

Alexa is a voice assistant controlled by an echo speaker, but it’s capable of much more. Using nothing but the sound of your voice, you can search the Web, create to-do and shopping lists, shop online, get instant weather reports, and control popular smart-home products, all while your phone stays in your pocket. It is a great gadget to have around the home that can help you run your errands.

This little girl has over a dozen failed attempts in talking to Alexa. She is still developing her speech, so the voice assistant doesn't always understand her wishes, and that gets the girl frustrated.

This footage was shot on February 5 in California, USA, and shows a little girl asking Alexa to play "Five Little Monkeys" and "If You're Happy and You Know It". However Alexa doesn't understand her requests.

The girl is annoyed and starts yelling and shouting at Alexa, as if she says it louder the machine would understand her.

At the end of the video, we can hear one successful attempt when Alexa finally understood the request and started playing "If you are happy and you know it" clap your hands. One big applause for Alexa please!
