SearchQuery entity type not working?

I built a quick proof-of-concept trying to use a SearchQuery entity with both the Capture and Choice blocks, and neither one seems to work.

Looking at this documentation: https://developer.amazon.com/en-US/docs/alexa/custom-skills/slot-type-reference.html#searchquery I don’t see anything particularly wrong.

(I see this old post on the forums: https://forum.voiceflow.com/t/amazon-fallback-intent-in-newbies-var-o-p-help/1203 but couldn’t get it to work)

Is there some way to use the SearchQuery entity?

Hi @moriglobal,

As a reminder, the SearchQuery Alexa slot need a carrier phrase to work, you can’t use it alone.

If you want to capture the raw user’s utterance, you can use the Capture step and choose to capture the Entire user reply in the settings.
