Record Audio files with intents
Would be great to be able to record & handle audio files with Alexa.
For example: "Alexa, start recording", recording.... "Alexa, stop recording" & then we developers would get an audio file of that. That would be a great feature & would give a lot of opportunities for new apps.
Keep voting this up :)
Any updates on this recording feature availability?

I can think of atleast 10 applications of this. So far Amazon has only opened up what you can already do using mobile (text-based) apps in Alexa devices but with voice. It just does text-to-voice translations and performs actions. However, the true potential of Voice User Interfaces actually lies in being able to transmit voice as well--I can think of applications in psychology, smart skills development (I'm talking about being able to have english classes, etc.), consent recording (like if brought someone over and told alexa a sentence like "Alexa, open I have a date and play music" and it started playing my favorite playlist but recording in the background--this would help expose a lot of false #MeToo cases), meetings for remote work teams (like skype but better), and many more features.. The Amazon Alexa team should plan and expose the Alexa Calling APIs / Alexa Recording APIs soon to expand their market even further.

Why is this feature still not available ? There is so much potential

I see so much potential for skills targeted at music students with this. Perhaps it's as simple as asking users to consent to a skill capturing their voice at skill startup?

Is there any timeline for this feature?
So that we can implement this feature in our custom Alexa skills.
i cant implement my idea on this as this feature is yet to be supported.. :(

... and it would enable language lesson skills, audio memos, life blogging, singing lessons, and much more.

It would be great to this feature, and it will open possibilities for messaging apps.
