Hey gang - this is working now! To enable it follow these steps:
 - Go into your Alexa App
 - Go to Skills then Categories
 - Scroll down and select Smart Home
 - Search for MyQ or Chamberlain
Add that skill
Then you can say "Alexa - Open <Main Door>" where Main Door is the name of one of your garage doors.

I had it before but now the skill is not found in the Alexa App, did they remove it? Any ideas?

It still works on mine but the skill is rather impossible to locate once it is installed. Check it out.

I have a working solution to integrate your Alexa and a MyQ enabled garage door.
I currently have it working on my house and can issue verbal commands throught Alexa to open and close the door.

I have the files compiled and you will have to do some leg work by editing the files with your login name and password that you use for either liftmaster or myQ. It doesn't matter which site you use as the backend works for both.

You have to create a developer account on AWS (Amazon Web Services), which is free, and you have to create an Alexa Skill with the Alexa Skill Kit (ASK) and load the edited files into a Lambda function you will create.

Once all that is done your skill is automaticall enabled in Alexa and you can issue commands like,"Alexa ask the garage to close"

If you have any doubts or just don't want to or can't create the skill yourself I can do it for you if you really want the MyQ or Liftmaster integration with Alexa.
