  1. Dear Team,

    Appreciate, if there is a vertical scrollbar in the intents list window. This will be of great help for the skill developer. Synonymous screen like hotmail folder split with scroll bar,

    with regards,
    Repath Athyala

  2. The ASK CLI automatically defaults to the US Virginia region, which is not optimal for many users outside the US.

    Whilst this can be manually changed later, it seems like an obvious confirmation option to add (to honour the AWS profile defaults for example).

  5. I am creating games for alexa. During the game I keep the session open until the game is over. But it is almost impossible to create multisuer skills. Interaction between players is impossible. Imagine You want two players to fight each other:
    First player hits the second one, but the second player wont notice until he starts a new intent.

    It should be possible to send messages to the echo while the session is up. Then I could inform player 2 that he has been hit and he can react.
    To improve this it should be possible to increase the…

  6. Hello! I am sure, my feature request would help many developers.

    I am creating a learning skill which is giving learned information to the user.

    For the skill to know if it either should learn or give information, it would be important to know if the user has invoked the skill by saying tell or ask.

    Example: tell skill where America is - ask skill where america is

    So please: Alexa should send the invoking keyword to the skill!

    Thank You for Your attention.

  7. I want to test my skill as a logged in user. My skill provides differnt results depending on the current user. The test simulator does not support at all to define an user or at least an token to identify a user.

    The reason I want that is byside that I can test as a signed in user, that I can inspect the resulting response JSON, without creating the request JSON by hand.

  8. When I use a VideoApp.Launch directive for streaming video, our application only starts streaming for about a minute before timing out, unless we "refresh" the stream. Once the stream stops, the echo says "Sorry, something went wrong". I would like to be able to end or refresh the stream before this happens so that this error condition does not occur.

    I understand that there is a smart home interface that allows for live streams, but our skill needs to use certain other features that are not available in the smart home skill API, so this is not an option.

  10. Possible to add "item" to the "response" for the Alexa.ChannelController
    https://developer.amazon.com/docs/device-apis/alexa-channelcontroller.html

    Current "channel" includes number, callSign, affliateCallSign as part of channel object.
    If you include something for the media, or item being played such as "item":{"title":"America's Got Talent"}
    then Alexa can use that to tell user what item is currently playing after the successful channel-change request.

    It removes the need to include the MSO ID (GraceNote info) that Alexa speaks back to the user. (I.E. "Tuning to NBC, now airing America's Got Talent")

    https://developer.amazon.com/docs/device-apis/alexa-property-schemas.html#channel

    Thanks,
    -Justin

  11. 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.

  14. I think it is very hard to design a complete and complex Dialog. Happy Paths are easy and I already used the tool Storywriter but it's not a clear way. You always forget an error Path and you never know what crazy stuff a user might say at a point. You are developing and recognize: Oh man, I need to talk to the product owner again, what to do in this special case.
    It's very hard to work when developers and product owner are working together on that dialog. It's such a time waist.
    I would love to use a…

  19. The ADC now loads only in chunks of ~20 skills. I have 300 skills, and each has two versions. I need to scroll and scroll to see the entire list, which important when I need to see the parent/child relationship between the prod + dev versions.

    Can you offer a display-all direct link?
