Android smartphone starts to laugh for no reason

    I know it sounds like I'm joking, but yesterday my Android smartphone (Redmi Note 9s) started to laugh for no reason.

    I was recording a WhatsApp voice message while it happened, you can hear the laughter loud and clear in the voice message (https://soundcloud.com/ninetea999/whatsapp-audio-2020-11-18). At that moment I had my finger on the button to record the audio, so I could not have pressed anything else and the sound doesn't sound familiar to me either.

    My only suspicion is that somehow I managed to open the Google Assistant while I was recording the audio, which shouldn't be possible, but you can activate both functions on this smartphone with a similar gesture. But when I say "laugh" to the assistant, it replies with "hihihi", which doesn't sound at all like the (human) laughter from the audio.

    I have googled the problem already and apparently others have experienced the same thing years ago, but I couldn't find anyone who knows what caused this sound.

    I hope that you can help me!

    So it sounds like a problem that's never been resolved. Don't think I can help you with that. FYI your URL is just showing me a "403 ERROR, PROHIBITED".

    I don't know why the link doesn't work for @mikedt, it works fine for me.
    Locations, perhaps?

    Anyway, the laugh I hear seams to be a female's response to whatever was being said by a male.

    At any rate, I don't speak the language in the recording, so I have no idea if that is what is going on.
