I was able to run the sample program for AVS. My question is how do I make Alexa skill which I can call from AVS but not need the "ask" word. eg. Alexa ask "mySkill" for directions to elevator. I would like to frame the above as Alexa , please give directions to elevator. Since I am using AVS and I always call the same skill then there should be some way to not have "ask" as keyword to use a skill. I also want Alexa to only respond if "mySkill" responds else say it did not understand or its not able to find the directions. Please help. I am new to this and trying to figure out the best way to use AVS and Alexa skills
Hi Amit, Thank you for your interest in AVS but your request is not currently a supported use case. As jiaquinta mentioned AVS is a gateway to Alexa so the behavior follows the user experience on the Echo and other Amazon devices. Today in AVS in order to invoke a skill you must use: "Alexa ask mySkill". Also there is no way to restrict Alexa's responses to only your skill.
