I want to write a skill that tells the latest value of a field in a DynamoDB table. (Another service will keep updating DynamoDB.)
How do I make Alexa speak the update automatically every 10 seconds without further user utterance after the skill is launched?
Interaction would be like this:
User: "Alexa, start Progress Updater"
Alexa: (Every X seconds) "10 percent."
Alexa: "19 percent"
Alexa: "100 percent. Task is complete!".
End of interaction
I know how to do it if a user has to say every time "Alexa, get me update".
Is there a way to do it in an automatic loop?
