Three weeks to go and new simulator for Echo Show!


BIG NEWS! The Alexa team added an Echo Show simulator to the Amazon Developer Console!

There are three weeks left in the Alexa Skills Challenge: Kids! Save yourself some deadline-induced stress by getting your submission ready early. Submissions are due January 10, 2018 before 5pm ET. (Find out what time that is in your city.)

We encourage you to finish up your project and submit it for certification in the U.S. Alexa Skills Store before the deadline. That way, if your skill does not pass certification, you'll still have some time to fix the issue. Skills must pass certification by January 17, 5pm ET in order to be eligible.

If you haven’t already started a submission, you should do it now. And if you’re just getting started, read the competition rules, look over the quick-start guide, and review the submission video guidelines.
