  1. Allow two way video for Echo show with WebRTC

    Need two way video support using RTCSessionController to enable lot of skills, long with much needed Aira for Visually impaired. This is a much add feature and I hope low hanging for enabling accessibility using Aira.

  2. Remove the conflict between Smart home device and Custom skill

    Hi,

    As I was creating a custom skill to control the TV through IR, after saying "Alexa, turn on the tv" it goes to the smart home skill section and says"No smart devices are found in your account" so As I was asking about this in forum they said this always will happen for custom skill you need invocation and all but if this feature is implemented it will be best.

    You can have a checker or switcher which looks for smart home devices connection(In smart home skill) if none found it will search it in custom skill and after…

  3. Two languages at the same time

    Hello there,

    it'd be excellent if Alexa could have two languages activated at the same time. For example, I'd love to have German and English activated and have access to the German and the US skill store at the same time.

    Much obliged

  4. Echo show customizations for room type. Kitchen, bedroom, etc. Also echo link app controlling audio. Not so easy playing music

    Example Alexa show in the kitchen having menu for recipes. For the bedroom things that would replace a phone (port home phone to echo) or an alarm clock, or remote. Echo link not so easy to play music. It will attempt to play on all other echo devices before going to link.

  5. New Alexa interaction flow besides :tell and :ask - :ask-once


    • Suggestion

    Having a new flow in Alexa interaction:
    Prompt -> listen -> exit


    • Problem

    As you know, there are currently two main Alexa interaction flows:

    :tell - Prompt -> listen -> end session

    and

    :ask - Prompt -> listen -> reprompt -> listen -> end session

    This is quite sufficient, but sometimes there could be a use for a shorter interaction, where user is asked for something once. Alexa would listen for the response and if user says nothing it closes the session. This would be mostly useful at the end of the game, when asking user for some feedback,…

  8. Blog blueprint for non-WordPress blogs?

    How about a Blog blueprint for sites other than WordPress blogs? Why not any text-based RSS feed? (Blogger, for instance.)

  9. Standalone Wearable

    We already have Amazon Dash Wand. Why not miniaturized it into a wearable like a fitness tracker (without the barcode scanner) so that we can have a standalone wearable with built-in Alexa? That way we can talk to Alexa wherever we are as long it is connected to the internet via WiFi (just like the Amazon Dash Wand).

  10. Follow up email to assist account linking completion

    Request:
    Amazon to send a follow-up email to users who used a skill that invoked account linking option so that they can complete the account linking from an email link instead of just in the Alexa phone app.

    The current process is too disjointed. The user has to break off their voice session in order to fiddle about on the Alexa app. Conversion of account linking is terrible.

    With this request implemented the user would be reminded about account linking at a later date via their email and could complete it whilst in a mode that is more appropriate to…

  11. Have Alexa be able to spell certain words in commands through the Alexa App

    Go ahead and try to get Alexa to play "Cantos Profane" by Richard Band. Or get it to call my friend Viktyr (No, I don't have any friends named Victor". Some things just require spelling, and Alexa does not accept spelling words out.

  12. Alexa smart home skills with Mode.Controller need to be able to query current mode.

    I am creating a smart home skill with the Mode.Controller. There needs to be a way to query what the mode is set to with voice. I see it in my alexa.amazon.com page showing the DeepQuery. But with voice the only response I get is I'm not quite sure what went wrong.. This would greatly help the user experience.

  13. Fire TV Sleep Mode or Timer

    Allow Alexa to turn on sleep mode or countdown to sleepmode on Fire TV devices via voice command. I would like to be able to set routines, and give the command and my lights would shut off, my FireTV would go into sleep mode (or start timer).

  14. Alexa should know my birthday from my profile.

    Alexa knows my name and address and other info. But when asked about my birthday or age, she has no idea. Such info is part of my account information. She should be able to call that info up and also be ready to wish me a Happy Birthday.

  15. allow for more than one invocation name

    I build skills for banks and CUs. In reality, some end users will include the term "bank" when they ask Alexa for something and others won't. I'd like the ability that for a bank skill, the main invocation name would be "XYZ United Bank," but that I can mask variations of this such as "XYZ United" that will also work. This is critical to user satisfaction!

  17. Enable multi-device gameplay

    Currently gameplay is limited to single device. Communicating cross device — ex. Drop in — is available, but not gameplay. Being able to challenge/play multiple devices at different locations — rooms, houses, etc.

  19. InvalidSkillStage

    When the skill is in the certification process, it shouldn't say that that there is a violation that requires re-building the interaction model. You can't build while it is in review.

  20. Allow to add custom channels in Video Skills

    At the moment there is a hardcoded list of channels in the video skill. It should be possible to add new channels to the list.
