PowerController: Send custom answer for PowerOn/PowerOff?

Hi. I have an own Smart Home Skill using the Alexa.PowerController capability interface. For TurnOn and TurnOff I send an Alexa.Response and Alexa answers "OK".

I was not able to find out how to respond with a custom text. The Alexa.Response interface does not contain a field for an own response text.

Example where I want to use it: When I turn off my TV in the evening and my smart home knows that there is still laundry in the washing mashine I want to add a reminder ("OK. But please think about the laundry before going to bed"). Is this possible?

Hello @apper and thank you for your message.

It is currently not possible to edit Alexa's reply to a smart home command.

You can however add this request to our Uservoice space over here so that other developers can vote in this feature request.

Regards,
Barry
