Media controls - Volume controls

Now that Alexa has media control capabilities are there any plans to add them to the HS3 skill, specifically volume controls. It would be a great addition to be use Alexa to fire IR events better or even directly setting the volume level straight to HS3. Should be lots of interest in this...

I use the HA bridge which allows variables to be given to the audio system.

I use that also somewhat but being able to just say "Alexa turn it up" "Alexa raise the volume" would be much better. This is already available to Sony tvs and coming to more every day, its only been activated for a couple weeks now.

I use the Alexa skill in conjunction with virtual devices, Aeon Smart Switch 6 (for TV on/off status notification), the Harmony PlugIn and the Kodi PlugIn to control media events by voice. Here are a few examples:
