  1. We keep the skill session open with users by giving them a follow up question prompt like "what else can I help with?". I have to believe there are a lot of skills that do this. There are quite a few circumstances where users ask things that 1st Party Alexa should respond to, not our skill. (Things like asking about the weather, about tides, or asking for a joke). We would like to be able to pass the ball back to 1st party for fulfillment.

    This could be done by either closing the skill session and providing the 1st party…

  2. Routines should be able to include more than one skill and spoken command for “from the device you speak to”…

    For example, I have four bedrooms with echos and smart lights. I would like to be able to speak the same one phrase (“bedtime”) in any of those rooms and have a routine turn off the lights in that room (custom - lights off) and open sleep sounds brown noise (skill) on the echo in that room. Presently, routines are limited to only one “custom” OR one “skill” action “from the device you speak to” making it necessary for different…

  4. Enable invocation of tasks for skills in development.

    As it stands right now, the only way to invoke a task is if the task is in a published skill. This both limits the ability to verify task behavior without first publishing the skill, but also prevents the creation of "personal" tasks for skills that I might never publish and are only intended for my own use.

    It would be great if I could develop a skill with a task, deploy it, and without publishing it, invoke the task via a routine or some other means.

  5. If you send the user in the Alexa app a card, it's not possible to click on links that are in the card. It's also not possible to copy these links to the browser.

  9. I recently spent two days trying to determine why I wasn't able to use the "Update live skill" button for changes to my skill that were clearly eligible for live updates. Ultimately I was able to find the change that was blocking the live update functionality, but it was an extremely frustrating experience, since the Alexa Developer Console provides no insight into what changes are making a skill ineligible for live updates.

    It would be nice to have a way to determine what changes are making a skill not eligible for the live update workflow so that skill developers can…

  10. Make cards, specifically permissions cards, more prominent in the app.

    Right now if a skill sends a permissions card, the user kinda needs to know where in the app to look for that card. I seem to recall that in older versions of the app, the cards (and other skill activity) was more prominent and maybe even displayed on the home screen when opening the skill. Now I must know to navigate to "More" and then "Activity" to see the cards.

  12. Hi, I tried to use "multi-value" slots in PT-BR but that feature doesn't exist yet so I just want to ask when that feature or if that feature will be release to PT-BR.

  13. Previously when a user disabled a skill, if they then said the invocation name, Alexa would say, "You previously disabled the skill; do you want to re-enable it?"

    Currently, there is no way for a user to "start fresh" with a Skill that has content previous stored in DynamoDB or another database

  14. I use SendToPhone to see a link to my Alexa App. But there is no little red "1" on the Alexa App. So, the user has to open the Alexa App to see that I've sent them a link. Most phone app support a notification affordance.

  16. When a skill fails certification it would be great to be able to ask for clarification. Currently if you don't understand or disagree with certification you have two options:

    1- resubmit and hope to get different certification person
    2- create a ContactMe case (which can take a week or more)

  17. It would be great if we could add a filter to change the speed of apla components including at a sequencer/parallel level so it applies to all children.

    E.g

    speed:1 would play at 100% speed (or default)

    You could do speed:2 to play at twice the speed or speed:0.5 to slow down the speech.

    This would allow a single asset to play in slow motion or speed up for example

  18. There is an extremely low amount of skills that can be used with the Proactive Events API. For Developers that need to send notifications to end users, this is abhorrent. I'm an IOT Developer within local government, looking to send users notifications for garbage and bridge closures, yet none of the schemas are applicable, even the Trash one is limited to a set of options that doesn't accurately convey the required information. This means that developers have to use workarounds, such as the Notify Me skill to be able to send that information to End Users, and also means that…

  19. Allow all permissions to be granted to a skill using a user's voice.

    Currently, the user can only grant reminders, timers, and user information permissions via voice.

    Other permissions, such as the Resumption API permission, have to be set via the Alexa mobile app.

  20. I need to be able to answer long form answers to questions and have Alexa capture those. I want Alexa to ask me, “how was your day?” And then listen while I answer. I don’t want to force this into AMAZON.SearchQuery. I want a new slot type that allows Alexa to listen. She would stop listening when I tell her to.
