Alexa has some native support for a few questions about the recording currently playing – among the MusicRecording intents, it has phrases that should get routed to the active skill’s Amazon.SearchAction handling. (See https://developer.amazon.com/en-US/docs/alexa/custom-skills/musicrecording-intents.html)
I’m not clear on what would need to be done in Jovo to catch and respond to those queries.
My attempts to guess the appropriate incantations in the app.js/handler.js haven’t yet succeeded.
Developers: Should this be doable with Jovo, and if so what’s the trick?
(I can implement equivalent queries directly in my skill, but then I would have to explicitly Ask the skill to get them routed appropriately, rather than just being able to say “Echo, who’s the performer?” I’ll do that if I must, but I’d rather have the skill’s behavior be more like other music skills. Though admittedly said skills are probably tied a lot deeper into Amazon’s presumed data structures for music catalogs.)
