Enable and allow true push capabilities
Expanding the current implementation of Push would unlock a massive developer opportunity. Please allow devs to build and users to select skills that can speak without the user initiating the conversation. If a skill gets annoying they can turn it off.
Thanks a lot for submitting this request. Your request has been recorded.

Would be cool to have push at least during open sessions...

It sounds like something unscrupulous solicitors would exploit to provide un-announced targeted advertisement.

I have wondered about the possibility of such a feature. It would be useful for AMBER alerts, hazardous weather and similar type bulletins. People are more likely to have an Echo device these days than a weather radio. As the other comment notes though, how do you address a specific user/device? Perhaps all active devices registered to an account that has opted in for such alerts will be triggered.

I see the potential but am curious how this would work for user with multiple devices and in household with multiple users. Could push to specific user, specific device, or combination thereof?
