Retrieve Echo Device Name in LaunchRequest in addition to DeviceID
My live skill has customers who have multiple Alexa devices and I need to provide them a UI to tie a device with a particular task.
The problem is in LaunchRequest I get a device ID like this. amzn1.ask.device.AHKJQG7VUA6HX4FMMCRQYRFTTXTZACQAJVH3KRR5MBLNC64UQ7UMWH3FKSYAXMICNCWARKPUAPBOYXFMDZLXYQE5WJL4GMZUJX6S4JBXOE7ZCSKBH3T47C7UZ2W4Q3XPROSWKGANQHSPNRX5GQ5IIUH3VKTQ
If I show this in a dropdown to the customer to choose from, their brains will explode. Can you not pass us the friendly name of the device like "Ben's bedroom" or "Alice's living"

did you ever find out a way to get the device name?
