How to get user location from Amazon Alexa


(Gitanjali Gharat) #1

Hi, I want to know if I can prompt to know the user location in Amazon Alexa, if so, how do I do that? Also how can I get the location details.

Hi @gitanjalight,

Amazon Alexa is exposing an API to derive user’s address/location and use it in the skill.
Please refer the following link to understand more on the API:

https://developer.amazon.com/docs/custom-skills/device-address-api.html

Also, we observe that this integration requires manual configurations in both Alexa and Bot.

Let us know if you have any further queries.

Regards,
Yoga Ramya.
