  2. Provide free hosting service for media used in Alexa skills

    Some developers are experiencing high hosting costs after building skills our customers love. For instance, skills that use audio or video in their skills can get bills in the thousands of dollars. As a result these developers host their skills outside of AWS. We should provide a hosting service for media that is used in Alexa skills. Perhaps we can have some kind of special CORS config that is billed at a free or cheaper rate than non-Alexa skill media? This would encourage the creation of skills with rich media like multi-modal features.

  3. Voice Print Login with Amazon

    Right now account linking is a very frictional process on Alexa. You can enable a skill with voice, but when you try to use it, you have to open the mobile app and log in. We could optimize this experience for voice by adding a voice-based login with Amazon. We already have technology that enables Alexa to tell who is speaking. We should extend that so users can log in with Amazon via their voice. The new UX could also help Log In with Amazon get more traction with developers.

  4. Endpoint link

    New i/f is neat. Thanks.
    It would be good if you could add the link to CREATE a Lambda endpoint again (it was on the old console).

  6. Alexa basic functions with something like Greengrass

    Alexa has enabled the disabled community, especially those paralyzed or with diseases such as ALS, to enjoy a level of freedom at a relatively low technical entry point. Out of the box, with very little configuration, these people can now reassume a level of control over relatively simple things in their lives which were not possible before. Something as simple as lights, music, television, temperature control or opening and closing doors. It has been an absolute life changer for my family.

    The one drawback here is that if the internet goes down, Alexa is unable to fulfill requests. For something…
