Alexa Developers Zero to Hero, Part 5 Video: Accessing ASK APIs

This is an Alexa Skills training video tutorial from Alexa Developers. Here is the YouTube video description:

In this video we’ll look at accessing Alexa Skill Kit’s APIs. These are specific public APIs available to developers to access user and device information to tailor the skill experience to them. These APIs require user consent when user information is involved and help reduce friction (as account linking is not required). We’ll also be looking at SSML (Speech Synthesis Markup Language) which allows us to spice up Alexa’s responses.

Topics Covered:
1. Service API (User Profile API – given name)
2. Settings API (timezone)
3. SSML (speechcons and audio files)
4. Array capable localisation interceptor
5. String replacement with plurals support
