  1. 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")

    Thanks,

  2. 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.

  5. 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…

  10. 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?

  13. In testing where can I view the request and intent being sent? In the previous console sending text would also show the JSON that was sent to alexa. I need this request for debugging.

  14. Recently we have published a Flash Briefing skill for our company but it is only available on 1 marketplace which is associated to my ID. I think there should be a feature that allow Flash Briefing skill to publish in all market places this will make management of content easy for the admin as the content will be same for all the marketplace.

    Also if the content is different for each market place then either user can create separate skill for each market or may be you can add a feature in skill creation step when developer can give separate…

  15. With the release of Skill Templates, Amazon has an very easy way to implement one of the most requested features: allow 3rd party skills to be invoked without saying an invocation phrase.

    Templates should support 3rd party skills. The "Custom Q&A" Template allows Alexa to answer questions without invocation phrases (e.g., "What's dad's phone number?") It should also allow such questions to invoke 3rd party skills selected by the user.

  16. This may have been posted, as I am not looking into the forum but am posting the idea from within my console... when it comes to the Measure section since the update I can no longer seem to find a line graph representation of my data. Can that be brought back? If inquired about already may this serve as an addition to populace of change.

    Also, if it's here and I'm not seeing it then something in the UI isn't intuitive.

  17. I have the following Intent Confirmation:

    Ok, got it. Let me confirm. You want to pick up a car on {startDate} at the {pickupLocation} and return it on {endDate} for a daily rate of ${rentalRate} , right?

    The slot type for rentalRate is number. In order to say the decimal value of rentalRate as "thirty-nine dollars and ninety-nine cents", I need to use the $ before it. There is no SSML say-as to make a decimal number into a currency.

    The UI gives me the following error when I try to add the dollar sign: "You have invalid characters"

    This…

  19. Keeping the voice first spirit user's should be allowed to link there Alexa with a skill using just voice. We for example just need an email and name to create account in our system. If Amazon provides an api to send this on fly when user says "yes go ahead link" then we can create an account on the fly and return an accessToken

  20. It’s not clear which state the tool is in during a conversational test.. It’s not clear when a skill session times out and whether default Echo or My Skill will answer your next utterance. It would be nice if the left panel had background shading to indicate you are in the default Echo or a My Skill session and to visually group a set of interactions to one session.
