We can now ask Amazon's Alexa about our health. Alexa is a virtual assistant. It listens to and answers questions. It can talk to people and tell them the latest news. Now it can give health advice. Amazon worked with the UK's health service to use its health database. Alexa will give answers from the advice of doctors.
The UK said it is great we can get advice from Alexa at home. This will really help busy doctors. The UK wants patients to have more control of their health. Not everyone likes this. Some people say we should not ask Alexa for health advice. We should see a doctor if we are sick. Other people are worried about hacking and privacy.
