Custom Payload

Once the user speaks some phrase to the assistant, Aimybox recognises it and sends the recognised text to the Aimybox API. This phrase matches with sample phrases you've provided in your custom skills using the NLU algorithms. If any phrase matches to the skill successfully, Aimybox API picks this voice skill and it handles the user's query. Then all following user's queries go to this voice skill until the skill ends the session.
