Please consider updating the Alexa framework to allow users to change the "wake" name, to "echo", "computer", etc.

Hi spenceusc,

Welcome to the community, and thanks for the suggestion. I'll send along a feature request to add the ability to change the Alexa wake word.
This feature really needs to happen asap. I have speakers in master bedroom, master bathroom and when I say Alexis, they both are listening. There are times when I really don't want this to happen.

When is Google assistant going to be implemented?
