An update to the Alexa app/service last week brought a new “Video” section in the settings with the first video partner to display being Dish TV. Buried in this update was also another new settings section for “Notifications.”
Amazon announced recently that it would also deliver the capability for skill builders to develop notifications and alerts into their skills. This new Notification section, though currently a blank page in the app, shows that this feature is coming more quickly than most thought. Amazon has a tendency to move quickly in improving Alexa capabilities.
