Thanks for the review, Galactoise. I'm looking to finding out more about the the SSML features. It seems that at least the IP address, hardware id, etc. of the Echo device could be passed through the cloud to the devs, no? Definitely not anything secure or geolocation, but at least a start and something to work with... Rand
There are apparently 50 or so of us out here who much appreciated the Twitch-cast. Even though the talks were far from newsy for developers, there were some useful hints about future enhancements for AVS APIs, and framing from several of the Alexa management is always useful for context. Amazon could greatly expand the viewership if/when it wanted by the even slightest promotion and/or the publication of a more accurate stream start time. Hopefully, the impedance is low enough for this sort of casting that the Alexa team can continue the precedent for future talks where appropriate.
