  1. bluetooth "brief mode" turns off device connection notification off

    having alexa blast "playing from <device name>" is very annoying and there is not setting to turn it off. I would like to propose that a setting be added or that "brief mode" would mute these bluetooth connection/playing notifications.

    There is a question related here: https://www.amazonforum.com/s/question/0D54P00006zStJTSA0/how-do-i-stop-alexa-from-telling-me-its-connected-to-my-phone

  2. allow access skills from another region/language

    More than 1 million Bulgarian immigrants scattered across the globe are struggling to preserve their cultural identity/heritage and to pass it over to their children. There are Alexa skills (like "Bulgarian library" skill) which could help them teach BG-language to their children however currently Amazon does not allow access to this skill from anywhere except US,UK,CA,AU. Most of the world (Germany, France, Italy, Spain, etc) has no access to it. So, in this case splitting the globe into regions makes no sense whatsoever.

    Would be greatly appreciated by thousands of people IF Amazon allows access to skills which are outside…

  5. Allow Alexa app users to reorder/rearrange items in their lists

    Not being able to order items in a shopping list makes it a painful experience to use the list while out shopping.

    You continually have to scroll up and down your list to check whether the aisle you're in at the supermarket is one that contains something on your list.

    Or sometimes you have a large shopping list, but only need to grab a few things - but without being able to move these higher priority items to the top of the list there's not way to indicate this.

    Giving users the ability to reorder their list items would improve…

  6. Speak battery level of tablet/smartphone devices for the sight impaired

    A very simple command such as "Alexa, battery" to report battery level. Would be very helpful to those who are sight-impaired and use tablets for audiobook play.

  7. Add support to stream audio from SSL on ports other than 443

    Can support be added to the AudioPlayer interface to allow streaming over SSL on ports other than 443? Currently streaming is limited to ONLY port 443 (the standard SSL port), but there should be no reason that other ports cannot also be supported.

    This limitation makes it so that services hosted from behind a firewall can no longer use that port (even when port forwarding in employed).

    In my case, I am hosting a streaming media server from behind my firewall, however I would like to have a secure website which I also host from the same IP address. My…

  8. Pause reminders until tomorrow

    “Alexa Pause reminders until tomorrow”
    If you have a reminder to take pills that keeps reminding you until you take them, then you can say Alexa Pause the reminder until tomorrow. That would be very helpful.

  10. Link echo device notification to login on a household account

    Each login that belongs to a Household Account should be able to only have communications, such as alerts of delivery come to the device registered to a particular login.

  11. Alexa skill for HTTP custom commands

    It would be useful to have a skill in which to define voice activation commands and the relative URLs to call.
    For example, if I say "Alexa, do this thing" a custom HTTP call is made (eg http://192.168.1.46/roller/0?go=Stop)
    This way there is the possibility of piloting any device that supports HTTP calls.

  12. Birthday reminders in a routine

    I wonder if it would be possible to program a routine that would announce calendar events like birthdays or anniversaries as part of a wake-up program and ask the "recipient" if they want to call the person later that day. And if the "recipient" says yes, then Alexa will both say, "OK I will remind you to call [birthday person] later today" and then make the reminder. But if the person says no or remains silent the routine can progress normally.

  13. Make it possible to program "volume controls" into a routine; for example ramp up the music in a wake up routine.

    Make it possible to program "volume controls" into a routine; for example ramp up the music in a wake up routine. I'm using a routine to help my aged mother-in-law get going in the morning while I am at the gym, so that I don't have to start from scratch when I get home. But her complaint is that it is too abrupt. It could also be useful ramping down at the end of the evening.

  14. Make the "Alexa for Your Day" a feature that can be turned off.

    I'm extremely disappointed with the operating system of the new Echo Show 10. Unlike the other display features like weather or news there is no way to stop the "Alexa for Your Day" from displaying. I like seeing my pictures on all of my current Echo Shows, but with the new Echo Show 10 I see one of my pictures then I see the "Alexa for Your Day." Please make it a feature I'm able to turn off. It's very annoying to see the "Alexa for Your Day." in between my pictures.

  15. Add "what song is playing?" information to a radio skill

    skills like TuneIn or Spotify, when I command Alexa "what song is playing?", returns me "You're listening to [name] from [author, podcast]. How do I implement this in my radio skill?

  16. Adaptative sound level

    Hello,
    Alexa speaks too loudly or not enough depending on the ambient noise. A volume which will adapt according to the ambient noise would be a great.
    Thanks,

  17. Analytics metrics for notifications

    Our skill uses the Proactive Events API to send periodic notifications to the user. It would be great if we had a metrics on the Analytics dashboard to evaluate the number of notifications sent to the user, the number of notifications received by the user and the number of notifications read by the user. This will in turn help developers evaluate the skill response and build better skills.

  18. Alexa alarm turn device such as a light on when alarm goes off

    When you set an alarm and set it to play the radio, it would be good if you could get that alarm to turn on a device such as a light at the same time.

    I currently have an alarm set, but then have to have a route created for the same time as the alarm to turn on the bedroom light. It would be great if this can be done in an alarm

  19. Allow more than one customised action in a routine

    Currently you can have one customised action at the end of a routine. It would be great if we could have more than one and have them anywhere in the routine.

  20. Allow multiple start times in a routine

    Having a single routine for example turn light on, but then have the ability in that routine to set multiple on and off times.

    So instead of having 3 or for routines to turn a light on, you have 1 routine with multiple times
