  1. Extra information for the skills store by Amazon

    Would be nice to allow custom parameters in permission.
    User would be able from the skill section in its alexa app to enter a specific parameter ( let say (iota address) which is an 81 character parameter .
    the alexa skills would be able to use it's value and this will be secured by amazon.

  2. Improved deeplinks and analytics for mobile web user acquisition

    There aren't good options for linking users to a skill for mobile devices on the web.


    • On desktop platforms, it makes sense to link to amazon.com/db/<product id>. The user is likely to be signed-in, and the user can enable to skill in one tap.

    However, on mobile web, all of the options are suboptimal:


    • On iOS, Linking to the amazon product link first opens the amazon app, and then the amazon app redirects the user to safari where it opens the link. I suspect that most users aren't signed-in on the web browser.


    • On iOS, Linking the user to the…

  3. Allow Markdown for Descriptions

    At the moment we can only write descriptions in plain text. It would be nice to be able to use markdown to better format the descriptions.

  5. Allow Publishing Skills to a Limited Group of Users

    I have a skill that I recently developed for my niece's 12th birthday. I wrote it as a joke as it displays her picture, tells some trivial facts about her like taking hours to do her homework and ultimately wishes her "Happy Birthday". It is definitely not a skill I would publish to the general public. However, I would like to make it available to my sister's family and a few cousins. Other than the "Beta" feature, there is no way to publish a skill that can be made available to a limited/restricted audience. I have seen quite a few…

  6. Notification on new store reviews

    There have been times when users have reported issues with skills via store reviews. It would be handy if we could get email notifications when new reviews are piblished against our skills in the store

  7. Enabling a skill to link to a good on the Amazon retail store (either 1P or 3P)

    It would be great if you could build a skill and link it back to the Amazon retail store to goods. For example, how to do I fix my leaky faucet? Then it could go through the ways to fix the faucet, and enable to user to buy the parts or a new faucet, wrench, etc.
