  3. Add echo show display timeout options

    The echo show screen automatically times out and turns off the display until it senses movement. This causes sound to stutter when listening to music. Adding display timeout options would fix this as well as allow the user to have more control over the display in general. Example, add screen timeout times such as timeout after 5 minutes, 10, 15, etc. Or option to choose never time out.

  4. 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.

  7. Display yellow bar when package is delivered

    I had an echo in the living room which instantly displayed a yellow ring when a package was delivered. My next glance at it told me I needed to get the package off my porch before the porch pirates got it. I upgraded to an echo show 8. It will display a message that I might see when I glance over there an hour or longer after the package is delivered. Like the echo I need a yellow bar on screen so no matter what trivial stuff the echo show is rotating through on the screen, I will instantly know…

  8. Alexa Feature Request - Whole House Audio Zone Smart Home Device Type

    A device type for a Smart Home Whole House Audio System Zone would be helpful. It could have features for zone on/off, volume up/down, mute/unmute, input/source selection, etc. This can be used with various manufacturer's whole house audio controllers/amplifiers such as HTD, Monoprice, Russound, Sonos, etc.

  9. volume

    A lower lowest volume on Echo Dot is needed. Currently the lowest volume setting achieved through the App controls is too loud. As dots are in bedrooms mainly, it needs to be lower to allow you to fall asleep.

  10. Adjust audio volume

    Have preset volume levels for drop-in, music playing, speaker groups and basic use. Having preset levels would be nice for drop in then a preset level for when I switch to music or speaker groups. All preset volume levels should be adjustable based on users preference

  11. Enable Echo to control multiple groups

    Allow Alexa Echo devices to connect to multiple groups.

    My Situation:
    I am using a singular echo device named “Kitchen Echo” to control devices in both my kitchen and living room. One of the devices (located in living room) is a 2-light lamp fixture. In order to have both smart bulbs turn on in this lamp, I had to create a separate device group, using a separate Echo device.

    This allows me to say... “Alexa, turn on Lamp 2” instead of telling Alexa to turn on both bulbs separately. I’d rather not use an Echo device located across my house…

  13. Energy consumption & production devices support

    Native support for devices that are able to return energy consumption and production. In addition to being able to display the information within Alexa, this will allow for certain automations based of energy usage. Eg. Turn off porch light if energy consumed within the past 12hrs = X. Turn on washing machine when energy production = X. etc...

  14. Ask Alexa what's its MAC address and What its IP address are so I don't have to look in the APP

    It would be great if I could just ask the echo for what it's MAC or IP address were without going into the APP.

  15. For seniors allow Alexa to respond without requiring the use of “Alexa” first

    For seniors needing help , they may be confused or can’t remember how to activate Alexa for help. Allow Alexa to respond to an emergency without the wake word Alexa.

  16. Add Korean as a lanuage.

    My siblings and I all use Amazon products. We are a multicultural and bilingual family with Korean as our second lanuage. Our challenges with your products are solely based on our mother's inabilty to use your products because her 1st lanuage is Korean. It would be extremely awesome if Korean and other languages on your devices
    Also, the ability to toggle back and forth between the two languages. Since most multi cultural families who speak more than one lanuage tend to go back in forth between languages.

    I love your products, but unfortunately without these features my entire family is…

  17. allow creation of Home Content panes

    On an Echo Show it's possible to add reactive skills that add capabilities in response to spoken instructions, but it would be neat to be able to develop (either as a packagable skill and/or user defined blueprint) additional panes for the Home Content carousel ... for instance I'd like to display a 2 day agenda that merges everything on my work and personal calendar, or displays the most recent aircraft spotted from my FR24 tracker...

    Panes could point to an external webpage which delivers a transparent background content, with cache/timeout settings so it doesn't poll too often...

  18. APL video "loading" and/or "loaded" event(s)

    APL video "loaded" event to enable showing a screen before a video has fully loaded so that the user is aware that the media is still loading. e.g., "Loading..." Right now, APL only has events for after the video has started playing. This is too late to elegantly switch from a "loading" screen to the video.

  20. Alexa, turn on blue shade or alexa, change brightness %

    For devices with a screen such as the show and the fire tablet(with show mode). Should be able to activate blue shade or adjust the brightness amount(similar to being able to adjust volume levels) for areas where you might have a screened device in a darkened room and don’t want it at max brightness. I use a fire tablet as my bedside alexa device and have to manually adjust the screen brightness at bedtime so it’s not blinding in the dark.
