Feature request - Allow alexa calling to dial extensions / dial digits

Alexa can dial phone numbers now but certain calls that require you to dial extensions or press digits to proceed. As of now Alexa seems unable to simulate pressing dialpad numbers when already inside a call. This would be extremely useful as a telephony feature.

Agreed. Using Alexa for person with sight and mobility issues - they really need this feature.

I would love this feature. I usually store my contacts with double pause (,,) between the phone number and the extension. On my phone it works like a charm. I hope we can see this feature soon.

Please allow support for comma to pause as is standard for cell phones. With millions more people working from home now, the ability to support pause for entering meeting numbers and dialing extensions is critical. Please please implement.
