My Question or Issue

/v1/me/player/devices (GET) endpoint, for Amazon Echo Dot speaker, used to return the echo dot's name as configured in the Alexa app as the name value in the devices array.  Now, it returns "AEODN" as the name of the echo dot, which makes no sense and is not meaningful.  Echo dot speaker works, it's just that the name returned for it is completely wrong.  The type value in the devices array is "Speaker" which is correct.
