Question about alexa and google home reading entity states

So I’ve been using alexa and google home with home assistant for a little while now and have just discovered google can see the states of my HA switches (ie “Is the coffee machine on”) But the same command to Alexa simply gives me “coffee machine doesn’t support that”

So my question is have I missed something in the config, or is this just a missing feature in the HA alexa skill?
