  1. Alexa Routines to have a "Post HTTP" option for simple automation.

    Simple voice control of DIY devices could be achieved if the Routines section of the Alexa App had an option to do an HTTP POST.

    eg/ I have a home-made lamp (based on an ESP8266) which I currently control using a custom skill that drops the JSON payload to a Linux server which interprets it then does a HTTP POST to the lamp's URL with the required mode as a parameter. ("mode=candles"/"mode=off"/"mode=purple"...etc)

    I could (and other hobbiests and educators could) much more easily have implemented this with an Alexa Routine identified by "make it candle time" with a line in…

  3. location based skill recommendation

    It'll be amazing if we can have location based skill recommendation. e.g.
    When saying "Find San Francisco skills", it will recommend related local skills for me

  5. Display answers for skill reviews in the Alexa App

    Currently users can vote for a skill and give a short review (sometimes with questions, sometimes faulty operations or the rating means another skill). As developer/or user you can answer to this review on amazon.com/de/co.uk etc.
    But it isn't displayed in the Alexa App! Nobody can see it except on the website. But only very few users know that

  6. Skill Marketplace Icon At Bottom Of Alexa App To Get Skills More Visibility In One Click

    Skill Marketplace Icon In The Bottom Of Alexa App Needed

    I think the skill marketplace needs a one touch icon at bottom of Alexa app to get to the skills marketplace section, right now there are too many steps to find new skills in the app.

    Having an icon at the bottom of the Alexa app would mean more exposure to skills.

    The way things are right now it requires far to many steps to go to the marketplace.

    Skills also need to have the ability to have feedback left on them by voice, the way feedback and reviews have…

  8. Alexa alarm turn device such as a light on when alarm goes off

    When you set an alarm and set it to play the radio, it would be good if you could get that alarm to turn on a device such as a light at the same time.

    I currently have an alarm set, but then have to have a route created for the same time as the alarm to turn on the bedroom light. It would be great if this can be done in an alarm

  9. Allow more than one customised action in a routine

    Currently you can have one customised action at the end of a routine. It would be great if we could have more than one and have them anywhere in the routine.

  10. Calendar Notifications - Support multiple echo devices

    Right now, calendar notifications can only be sent to one echo device, but I want to send the notifications to several echo devices. Please implement a list of echo devices with a toggle per device to enable or disable Calendar notifications.

  11. Amazon Shopping Notifications Only to Specific Devices

    There are certain echo devices that I don't want Amazon Shopping Notifications sent to, but it seems to be all devices in the amazon household or nothing. For feature reference, Alexa calendar notifications currently supports enabling notifications per echo device in my account. As a stretch goal, I would like every notification type to be configurable per device (Shopping, Announcements, News, Reminders, etc)

  12. default settings for smart devices within a group

    When turning on a group the lights and other devices within the group are the same when switched off. Would be useful to have a "defaults" area where we can set the defaults. At the moment I have a routine called "office chill" which makes the light blue (among other things), then I say "turn the office off", but then when I say turn office on its still blue. Would want it to be white. I have a bunch of custom routines like "office on" but would be nice to have default option, ideally for all device options.

    When debugging new skills and testing the discovery sometimes it's required a devices cleanup but there is no "delete all my devices" button or vocal command.

  15. alexa for kids app

    The fire tablet does not allow use of the Alexa kids App to use for phone calls because of the parental controls. I was not able to sync the Alexa kids app to my childs profile. So it has been frustrating to take advantage of this tool. Please consider changing this feature to allow use from a childs profile. W

  16. Bluetooth to speaker groups

    I currently have a turntable hooked up to my sound system via Bluetooth to one of my Echo devices. I would like to be able to play the audio from my turntable on a speaker group, currently it plays just on the one Echo. This feature would also allow a user to play audio from a connected phone, tv, tablet, or computer on multiple Echos at once.

  17. Read ALL the language settings of the mobile!

    I have in my mobile set the following languages in THIS order:
    - Hungarian
    - German
    - English

    The Alexa App however does not check this! Just the default system language Hungarian. So. Because this language is not supported, English will be set for the app. Why? It should take the first applicable, and this is German (living in Austria). Please fix this!

  19. Video Call on Phone: On screen display timeout

    When I use alexa app on my iphone and during a video call, if I have to move to another screen and come back to the Alexa video call, from that point of time, the screen times off and I have to touch the display to bring it on again. Can we ensure that during the video call, there is no time out and the display stays on until the video call is finished irrespective of if we moved away from the screen for a while or not?
