Doorbell press announcement setting is always disabled.

Hi,

After implementing the discovery interface for the Doorbell event, the setting in the Alexa app is always disabled, can I make it enabled by default. Below is my discovery response.

    "header": {
        "namespace": "Alexa.Discovery",
        "name": "Discover.Response",
        "payloadVersion": "3",
        "messageId": "984c6019-a077-43c1-9b3d-ce548c557673"
    },

                    }
                ]

I believe this is opt-in by default - customers have to enable the setting themselves and it isn't possible to turn on announcements by default from the skill side.
