How can I detect device from which the request is made to my skill?

It seems the possibility didn't exist as of January 29th this year, and the blog post from March 21st where the supported templates may be viewed in the JSON request.

I'd appreciate any updates on the possibility of receiving the device name along with the request as well. Thanks!

Hey Nikhil,

Do you want to make difference between display or non-display devices? or Do you want to know from which Alexa device this request is coming from?

Hey Anand,

Apologies for the delayed response!

I'd like to have different experiences for devices with a display and the ones without a display and know from which device the request is coming. For the latter, I the blog post from March 21st will suffice for now. I ask in case I have a use case later.
