Would like my kids to be able to request custom playlists on Amazon Music with Freetime enabled. Right now, it will only play certain playlists that are created by amazon. Would like my kids to be able to play their playlist.2 votes
Currently, one has to create a custom intent and execute it by using the invocation phrase with the intent. Example:
"Alexa, open My Podcast Player and get the current song"
Or, with this feature request:
"Alexa, what's playing?"
The documentation makes note that this is currently not available: https://developer.amazon.com/docs/custom-skills/audioplayer-interface-reference.html#intents
"This only applies to the built-in intents. The intents you define (such as the example PlayLatestEpisode intent) must be invoked using a normal invocation phrase."4 votes
It would be really nice if when alexa is listening we could play an ambient sound in the background. It would help with the immersion.
Because right now, when alexa finishes speaking and starts listening, there is only dead silence. It would be awesome if there would be possibility to play some silent ambient sound while user is thinking what to answer. This would allow to create more seamless and engaging experience.7 votes
Audio quality in audio tags is abysmal. Audio is already limited to 90 sec in total and max 5 tags in ssml. That is fine, but the biggest issue is that It is really hard to produce good sounding audio with these restrictions (mp3/16khz/48kbps). It would be great if these restrictions would be increased, to as much as possible. This would help to build more engaging skills with great audio inserts.9 votes
Do Alexa has a tone of voice? like speaking in an excited way when talking to kids. because based from my experience as a human when I talked to kids I use tones to get their attention more and level the tone to their needs. I usually get their attention 80 percent of the time when I want them to listen to me.2 votes
I’d like to access the built-in skill of playing music in my skill.
Currently, it can only suggest a song title and album name, but customers can’t listen to the music while still my skill and must exit to access built-in skills for listening to it.1 vote
My amazon.de echo cannot recall one of my favorite radio stations from America. The station is 960 WHYL. No matter how I try to say the station, in English and german, alexa cannot play it and I have to use the app. Having the ability to assign another command, such as preset number, would be so helpful. So, I save 960 am as “preset 1”. Then ask Alexa to play preset 1 on Tunein. Thank you for your consideration.9 votes
