  1. Selectable number of episodes played by Flash Skills

    The developer console defaults to playing the last 5 installments of a Flash Briefing, unless we set the number separately in our RSS feed. This number should be configurable within Alexa, without requiring changes at the RSS level. (And the default for Daily briefings should be one, right?)

  2. One Flash Briefing skill should be available in all marketplace

    Recently we have published a Flash Briefing skill for our company but it is only available on 1 marketplace which is associated to my ID. I think there should be a feature that allow Flash Briefing skill to publish in all market places this will make management of content easy for the admin as the content will be same for all the marketplace.

    Also if the content is different for each market place then either user can create separate skill for each market or may be you can add a feature in skill creation step when developer can give separate…

  3. Daily auto update of Flash Briefing feed file

    Is it possible to have an daily auto update JSON feed for a Flash Briefing, whereby one has 365 feeds prebuilt, one for each day, and Alexa pulls the applicable feed file based on day stamp or other attribute?

  4. Japanese Words In an English flash briefing skill.

    I need to find a way to get Alexa to correctly pronounce Japanese words in an English language flash news skill (about sumo). Would it be possible to make it so that when Alexa encounters Hiragana and Katakana in an English text stream, she pronounces them using Japanese pronunciation rules?

  5. Allow Flash Briefings to connect to any port

    There's no reason Flash Briefings should be confined to ports 80 and 443, as webservices can (and do) run on any almost any port. This restriction causes serious limitations for (among others) people trying to run multiple services on the same EC2 node.
