With the V3 version of the API, we have the option to send response asynchronously using DeferredResponse. In regards to synchronous vs. asynchronous, the documentations states:
"In either case, there is a hard limit of 8 seconds before Alexa times out."
Does this mean Alexa will timeout if the DeferredResponse is not received in 8 seconds, or does Alexa timeout if the subsequent asynchronous message that is sent to the event gateway isn't received within 8 seconds?
Some of our device messages may take longer than 8 seconds to fully process, so we are evaluating if using DeferredResponse as an acknowledgement will suffice.
Thanks for any help.
