One week to go – the deadline is almost here!

Whew, it’s the home stretch! There’s only one week left to submit your voice-activated Alexa skill. Submissions are due May 9, 2017, before 5pm ET. Find out what time that is in your city.

Remember, you must also submit your skill for Alexa Skills Store certification by the submission deadline. Here's how to do that. There's still time to claim one of the First 200 Certified Skills Published awards. Don't miss out!

New stuff alert! The Alexa team just released additional SSML options so you can make Alexa whisper, bleep expletives, alter the pitch and more. Plus, your certified skills will work on the all-new Echo Look!
