  1. 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).

  2. 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

  4. When playing a game like backgammon I would like to have Alexa store the game score. The I score would have to be given to Alexa. For example "Alexa Update Score. Steve 3 John 5". "Alexa Score" then Alexa would say " Steve 3 John 5. The user can then update the score at any time using the command "Alexa Update Score" or "Alexa Clear Score" which would clear the score. After a "Clear Score" command the Alexa response would be " No Score stored" Ability to give as many names followed by a score. Example "Alexa Update Score John…

  6. I'm pretty sure this has been done a lot, but the timeslot filling needs a lot of work. The slot confirmation should automatically be able to derive am/pm and know when to ask e.g. if you ask alexa (not in the skill) to set and alarm for 12, she says "midnight or midday?", ask for 6 she says "morning or afternoon", ask for 6pm she accepts it as 18:00. Apparently this is handled in Amazon Lex, but not here. Having to code for this manually in the skill is cumbersome. Thanks.

  7. As a developer, I would want the same API event like list event to synchronize Alexa reminder with third party app.
    The event will give add, modify or removed reminder event and the ability to add modify et remove reminder in Alexa app.
    Actually I can access only to reminder that my skill create, I would want access to all.

  8. 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…

  10. Last versions of Alexa devices does not support basic authentication for MediaPlayer anymore. This is very usefull in cases you want to play password protected audio files.
    Here is an example of an url that does not longer work with new Alexa devices:
    https://user:password@server.com/file.mp3

  11. Nowadays developers can't change device address returned from developer console test. Some cases which require specific address to test features turn dificult to do. So, is a good idea to implement a functionality in order to be able for changing the device address returnes by console.

  12. Is it possible to persist the values within Service Endpoint Type when switching between "AWS Lambda ARN" radio option and "HTTPS" option? I test new code with a local lambda proxy endpoint URL and whenever I switch back to "AWS Lambda ARN" option I have to re-enter the ARN, which becomes tedious. It would be extremely convenient if the last used value could be persisted.

  13. if an Alexa skill is not in production, add the inputTranscript attribute to the response.json. inputTranscript is used by Amazon Lex. In this fashion, one can use existing aws/lex tools to write automated tests ( context: I have the problem that my Alexa skill gives different answers based on whether I type the utterance or say it - although it is not quite ready my new tester using lex-runtime and Polly, will detect problems).

  16. Why do APL designed skills have a dark tint/overlay on listening mode?
    This seems to be a UX flaw.
    Why hinder visibility of a skill designed to have a visible aspect?

    The blue waving graphic should be more than enough to let the user know Alexa is listening.

  17. Example: I want to listen to the Troll soundtrack. 'Trolls' does not interest me. In 4 of 4 attempts, Troll was successfully heard, and Trolls started.

    Usage:"Alexa, play Troll soundtrack, not Trolls" or "Alexa, play Troll soundtrack, ignore Trolls".

    Alternatively, it could ask "Did you mean Trolls (Original Soundtrack) by varied artists or did you mean Troll?"

  18. 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.

  19. Many skills perform the same tasks, some better than others.
    Trying different skills is okay.
    When skills are disabled they are still used (linked).
    No way to stop old skills from interference. thanks

  20. It would be useful to see why elements are positioned as they are in the simulator. Suggestions:
    1. A feature to view the applied styles on each element, especially padding properties and the alignment properties of containers.
    2. A feature to show the outlines of elements, especially invisible elements such containers.
