  1. Bluetooth connection announcement

    I know this has been noted ad nauseam, but I would like to request that there is a way to turn Alexa's announcement that it is connected to my computer each time it wakes up. I bought a new system, and instead of having a multitude of wires attached to it for speakers, I found that I could use my device as a Bluetooth speaker. I have my Echo set up will full volume, and I adjust levels with my computer. As a result, I get full blast "Alexa is connected to user's Mac Pro." It's quite irritating.

    I was…

  2. More notification schemas and SSML in notifications

    If we could introduce more notification schemas to cater to the different kinds of notification messages each industry will require would be advantageous. Currently, we need to choose from the available schemas which suits best and it's not always possible to frame notification messages around the fixed schemas. Also introducing SSML in notifications would be truly beneficial.

  3. Add additional MediaTypes to AMAZON.MediaContent.Available Proactive Events Schema

    To support notification of new blog posts, request to add "POST" to MediaTypes in the payload parameter content.contentType of the AMAZON.MediaContent.Available of the Proactive Events Schema
    Would also suggest adding additional MediaTypes of "LECTURE" and "SERMON" at the same time (as these are target markets for me).
    Best,
    -Chip

  4. Echo light ring to indicate timer progress/countdown

    A timer would be improved if I could quickly see the progress without asking how much time is left.
    I suggest that you use the light ring to count down the timer: starting with the light ring fully lit when the timer starts, it could progressively dim, a bit like the hand of a clock.
    There could also be a light flash warning when, say, 1 min from the timer ending.
    It would be nice also to save and recall a timer that I use often.

  6. I’d like the Echo Show to display Arlo Camera when motion triggers it. I don’t understand why there can be an audio alert and not a video?

  9. Proactive Events notify with light/sound without ask to Alexa...

    It would be useful for Proactive Events to automatically notify new notifications (with audio or badge in the display series: echo spot / show) without having to ask Alexa: are there new notifications ?.

  10. Add again custom notifications.

    I'd would love it if it is possible to add again custom notifications for services like the popular skill "Notifyme". I Want to create a skill like "Notifyme" for germany but it isnt possible with the new proactive schemas. So i would love it if it is possible to add a schema for complete custom messages. I would also have the idea that you can identify skills that use this feature if this should be the problem.

  11. Weather alert Proactive Events schema for italian alert system

    Hi!
    For my civil protecion's NPO, I'd like to develop a weather alert skill.

    We are in Italy, and the provided weather alert schema is tailored for US.

    For the compliance with italian alert system we nedd totally different data and messages.

    It's quite difficult to explain, but I try.

    Italy is divided in Regions and every region has its alert zones (number can vary from a Region to another).

    The principal weather events are: rain, heavy rain, flood, heartquake, snow, heat alert, fog.

    Every weather event has a level (from green to red) that indicates the severity of the…

  12. Skill Action Follow Up Notification

    For skills that perform an action requiring follow-up (e.g. lock a door --> the door is now locked; close the garage --> the garage is now closed), there should be a window of time whereby the skill is able to respond back to the user without keeping the connection to Alexa open.

  13. Proactive event schema for loyalty awarding

    We'd like an event schema that can be used to notify people that their loyalty points / currency has been tracked / awarded.

    For example:

    Your [number] [award currency] awarded for your [action] at [merchant] for [currency] on [date] has been [status]

    Your 100 Avios awarded for your purchase at John Lewis for £300 on 7th November 2019 has been tracked

    Your 100 Avios awarded for your purchase at John Lewis for £300 on 7th November 2019 has been confirmed
