When a person is not breathing, permanent brain damage begins after 4 minutes and death in 6 minutes after that. Can you count on help arriving before that time? Learning proper CPR techniques is easy and you can learn it in 30 minutes at CPR Test Center.

How to get the user back into the skill after Alexa Timers API ends

Alexa Timers API blog says:

...you can have Alexa speak out when the timer elapses, or issue a customized prompt to return to your skill to continue the customer experience.

Does anyone know how to do that? I have tried the timers api with announcement timer which simply ends the timer with an announcement with no opportunity to get the user back to continue with the skill. I also tried the launch-task timer, but that requires building a custom task outside the skill then routing to it.

Is there a right way to continue after the timer ends with a question that the skill itself can handle?

Thanks in advance for your suggestions!
