get_post_meta( get_post_thumbnail_id(), '_wp_attachment_image_alt', true ); works just fine for this. Personally I don't see how an extra function for this is any more useful than this one liner. Especially if it's just for the featured image and not attachments in general.

@swissspidy Yes but I hope somebody they did not know about the meta key name "_wp_attachment_image_alt". That's why am asking about the function

I think he was wanting it in the editor.

Indeed. I replied on the support thread accordingly.

Closing this one as a wontfix as I don't think it's needed at the moment.
