IntentRequest v LaunchRequest

Alexa docs show that there is more than one way to launch a skill; in this case I’m curious whether Voiceflow can differentiate between a LaunchRequest, and an IntentRequest?

If you want to invoke the skill with intent, called “one-shot invicatiion”, use intent block.

also, supports nane-free instruction with canFulfillIntent. but this is for US only, beta feature as alexa, and seems not work always. (I’ve never used because I use Japanese)

Thank you!

I was using the Interaction block instead of the Intent block :man_facepalming::roll_eyes:
