I have a couple Alexa platform feature questions related to sending voice notifications via ask api.
1.Is there a amazon recommended solution for sending notifications?
2.Is sending notifications something that you are considering or looking to add in a near future release?
3.If not then is there a way to load existing echo devices with a custom version of the AVS service or possibly purchase “blank” or “unlocked” devices that could be loaded with extended AVS functionality? I’m working as part of a start-up that wants to utilize the echo for improving senior healthcare. Being without notifications, we are going to have to look at designing, manufacturing and shipping a custom device with the AVS service and ship it directly to our customers instead of leveraging the existing well-designed echo. For our org, leveraging SMS or a secondary device isn’t an option as our target audience does not currently have, nor do they want additional devices. We need to keep the cognitive load as low as possible otherwise, they are not going to use the service. What is your recommendation? Thanks in advanced!
If this is not the right location to ask or you aren't the person then could you point me in the right direction of the best place to ask.
