It seems that if Alexa doesn't get a response from a skill after about 8 seconds, it will respond with "The requested skill did not provide a valid response". So two questions:
- Is it possible to extend this timeout? I've seen some suggestions in the forums about sending a progressive response, but this doesn't actually extend the timeout, according to the docs and my tests. I have some intents that may take a while to retrieve their data.
- If not, is it at least possible to change what it says after a timeout?
