Customer feedback is crucial for every software company, and over the past few months our team has been busy gathering thoughts and listening to our users as they navigate the voice app development space. If you’re an active member of the Alexa Slack community, it’s likely our own founder and CEO, John Kelvie, has asked you a few questions directly.
Thanks to our hundreds of users, we’d like to share the following Bespoken Dashboard features that were inspired by real users.
Want to track progress of an issue or see if one was already implemented? To hold us accountable, check in with the activity on Github, and keep the feedback coming.
As you can see, these feature range in scope from everyday UX to sophisticated metrics. We take every comment to heart and are committed to making continuous improvements so you can concentrate on building and improving your Alexa skills and Google Assistant apps.
