SessionEndedRequest Waiting Period.

The documentation states that one of the reason that a Skill with an open session may receive a "SessionEndedRequest" is due to "The user does not respond".

For how many seconds does the session remain open before the Alexa Service decides that "The user did not respond" and hence it should send a "SessionEndedRequest" to the Skill ?

Thanks. It's more like 6.4 seconds. I wasn't able to find any documentation on this.

Hi alexadiva, I'm pinging the team about any available detailed docs for this issue. Have you set a reprompt response if the user does not reply (before the time-out kicks in)?
