Proactive update possible with custom skill ?

We implemented custom skill we need to know without voice request that is possible to send voice command to alexa.

Example : something happens in our smart home device we should send voice response to alexa(without request).

this feature supporting alexa custom skills ?

If supporting means how to do that ?

Skill cannot be invoked without user input, so it is impossible. The only thing you could try to use would be notifications, but they are currently available just to a bunch of chosen skills under developer preview program, which is now closed. When it will be available for everyone they will probably announce it in the twitter or in the alexa blog.

If you have some ideas how to solve this issue and this feature is important to you, please post it in uservoice alexa, or find an existing idea and upvote it. This way amazon team will know, what developers want to see implemented next.
