Feature Request - Alexa room awareness for other device types (custom device types)

When having more than one device of the same type in different rooms (for example a fan), it would be nice to use room awareness like with lights and just say "turn on the fan".

Hi developer,

Yes, you can go ahead and put this as a feature request in Uservoice for Alexa over here.

Sooooo, how many more years until this is implemented? Google Home has recognized "the fan" forever, yet Amazon has done nothing to improve their assistant for smart home use. Sad.

Unfortunately we don't have any updates at this time - feel free to provide feedback through the Alexa app or the uservoice page as noted by Apeksha as well.
