Amazon has launched a new feature whereby Alexa automatically enables skills it thinks are similar to voice commands you give it…without having a separate “enable” voice command. I am finding this is killing my SmartThings integrations as when I say for example “run bedtime” instead of Alexa running my ‘bedtime’ routine, Alexa prioritises enabling a skill called bedtime. So now I am no longer in control of what Alexa does, if someone writes a skill with a name similar to my routines that will get run instead.
Anyone else getting this problem? Amazon support seems to have no way of permanently disabling unwanted skills, or switching off the auto-enable skills function they have recently added.
Any solutions, other than renaming my routines every time someone in the global community decides to write a skill with the same name as my routine?
