    I think you're referring to the timeout while Alexa waits for your endpoint (e.g. Lambda) to respond, rather than the timeout while Alexa waits for a user's voice response, right? If so, agreed.

    I'd like this even for production skills....sometimes you need to retrieve data that takes a long time.

    Right now it seems to time out after 8 seconds. Using a progressive response to say something like "please wait" doesn't extend the timeout.

    I'd also like to be able to change the response when it DOES time out, which is currently "The requested skill did not provide a valid response".
