Alexa Skill Blueprints Let You Create Custom Responses

Alexa Blueprints allow you to create simple Skills without coding
Personalize Your Alexa Experience in Minutes with Alexa Skill Blueprints. But now, thanks to Amazon's new Alexa SkillBlueprints initiative, you can make your own - and you don't need to be an app developer to do so. When I "see how easy it is to create a skill with blueprints", I sort of lose my mind and go into silly mode. The code-free approach has 20 Skill Blueprints that revolve around things like family history, house instructions to bad Dad jokes. Amazon is providing pre-built templates in the Alexa Skill Blueprints app to help users get started with making custom questions and answers of their own.
How many Blueprint templates are available?
The experience page dictates how the user will interact with the skill, and how Alexa will respond. Skill or some other trivia Skill available. Each blueprint comes with pre-filled content that can be used as-is or customised, meaning you can edit the examples or add your own.
Amazon just released a new way for Alexa users to customize their experience with the virtual assistant. When you're finished, the skill will be available on all Alexa-enabled devices with your account; they won't be available to the general public.
The custom questions and answers are surely going to keep Alexa users busy tinkering with the new feature for a while. While these skills will exist for your Amazon account until you delete them, they aren't posted to the general Alexa Skills score, so strangers will not have access to your couple's trivia game that's personalized for you, your spouse, and your best coupled friends. If it's a trivia skill, Alexa will open the skill and start asking you trivia questions that you've added to the skill.
Echo Spot features second generation far-field technology with four microphones, acoustic beam-forming technology and enhanced noise cancellation so it can hear you from across the room-even while music is playing.
Once you've done that you can then pick from a variety of templates (aka blueprints) and begin crafting your own responses.
With the Custom Q&A skill I could potentially make Alexa's response to all my questions be: "The answer is fart".
