Does a developer have any control over the output of a companion card?
I can see many reasons why a developer might want this, but for now my needs are pretty basic: In addition to writing out Alexa's response, I would like for the user to see their own question just above it. I realize that there is the grey voice-feedback area, but I want something that looks like it belongs in the response above that section. For example: [b]You asked:[/b] What color is the sky? [b]Alexa responded:[/b] Blue. Thanks, MC
Thanks for the responses. While I understand, that we can insert a simple string as the card content, is there any way to format it? For example, how would I insert a line break or a boldface font as in the example above? How about logging Alexa's understanding of what the user said? Thanks! Matt
They only allow plain text now. Obviously, from their built in services, the app can handle rich text. But they just haven't exposed that yet in the ASK. It opens a can-of-worms security wise. So they're probably taking their time with it. As a half-way-house, it would be nice if they supported, say, markdown text. That's much easier to secure.
