  2. 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.

  4. An issue for larger organizations is the lack of governance around access to the developer console and specific features of the console. For example, I'd like to be able to allow a developer to contribute to a skill or do their own POCs, but prevent them from submitting for certification.

    It would also be useful if SAML auth were supported to allowed for federated access to the console.

  5. When a user invokes a Skill on a Fire TV Cube, provide a way for our fulfillment webhook to determine that the device is a Fire TV Cube. We know we can determine that the skill was invoked on a device that has a screen, but we need a way to determine that it is not an Echo Show or Spot, but instead a TV connected to a FireTV Cube.

    Then, provide a way to determine whether or not the TV power is on or off. If it is off, provide a way for us to tell the Cube to…

  7. I've created a smart home skill for a device that needs some time between each actuation.

    I know in advance if a device is ready or not to be controlled again.

    I would like to provide a nicer feedback to the user by replying to control request with an error indicating that the device need some time to execute a new command in the cases where my device cannot be controlled when the request arrives.

    This command should be translated in something like:
    The device X is temporarily busy please try again later.

    The ASK SDK already provide few errors…

  9. It would be useful to manage the feed parser from the Flash Briefing programming interface.

    It is not always possible to set a feed upstream.

    How I can use and even choose the order would be really very useful.

    Sarebbe utile gestire il parser dei feed direttamente dall'interfaccia di programmazione del Flash Briefing.

    Non sempre è possibile impostare a monte un feed.

    Selezionare i campi utili e sceglierne anche l'ordine sarebbe veramente molto utile.

  10. In the Build page, in the Intents list, it would be great to be able to order the Intents (move them up or down) to put them in whatever order the developer wants. I'd like to have mine ordered alphabetically. Same goes for Slots and Slots Types. Thanks!

  11. Since the new Alexa App update you have to go unter 'activities' to view the cards. This definitely harms UX since users have to first find this view and always have to navigate there. Many skills require quick user access to card resources which now suffer from the new changes. Right now if you open the Alexa App you just get the weather info and some recommendations what to say to Alexa. This does not to be very time critical information you want to get on startup of the app.
    I would appreciate some opinions on this topic from other…

  12. Outputting a sequence for touch choices is nice - but it would be great if there were some visual styling controls to help differentiate the rows (other than being able to use a single color and spacing).

    For instance, being able to specify two colors, and have every other row be different - or being able to submit an array of colors that are used in sequence, which would be used cyclically (IOW, if the number of choices in a sequence were greater than the number of colors, it would use all of the colors, then start over from the…

  13. I would like to be able to test new skills on a local server which is only accessible via a public ipv6 address. The domain/subdomain has an appropriate dns entry (AAAA record) and ssl certificate.
    As of now, neither the developer console nor a live test with an Echo is able to resolve the domain name.

    I originally asked this as a question to the developer support and they suggested to raise the topic here.

  17. CanFulfillIntentRequest should provide some basic context for the user such as (general) location information. My skill is only useful to people in a particular geographic region (the 5 boroughs of New York City). It'd make sense to allow it to fulfill intent requests originating from New York, but not from Chicago. I don't think think there's any way to distinguish at this time.

  18. Please limit the testing portal to the present skill being tested. What I mean is I have a skill with invocation name "game game"..its a dummy invocation name..now in the test portal whenever I use say open game game, Alexa starts suggesting games like rock paper scissors and all that instead of actually opening my skill. This is highly frustrating..and this issue doesn't happen when I test my skill on my device..so the test portal's purpose becomes void.

  19. Auto Delegate Dialog Completion Setting in the Interaction Model would be a great feature to have. Currently, all IN PROGRESS dialogs are sent to the http/lambda endpoint incurring a trip to the lambda/function only for the lambda/function to respond with a fixed Dialog.Delegate response. Granted in some scenarios you want to update the intent, however in most cases if all we want to do is let Alexa handle the dialog completion, I would like to save the Lambda/Function invocation. While creating the Intent, I would simply like to check a box that says "Let Alexa handle dialog completion".
