Widget Button Press State

The Alexa press state responsive component (AlexaPressState) creates a tappable area over the entire widget. The component displays a subtle animation when tapped to provide the user with feedback. You configure AlexaPressState to either fill the entire widget viewport, or leave enough space for your header and/or footer.

Other than the feedback on tap, AlexaPressState doesn't display any visual components on its own. Use AlexaPressState in addition to your own design or a template to display content.
