What is the October Challenge?

For every skill you publish with Voice Apps in October, we'll give you a $5 Amazon Gift card!  It's that simple!  

What do you need to do?

All you need to do is create a skill with Voice Apps and get it published and live on the Amazon Skill store.

We encourage you to publish your skill in as many languages/locales as you can.  If you are creating a skill in English, choose all 5 of the English locales when creating your skill.

You must submit your skills to Amazon for certification and get them approved.

See the Voice Apps terms and conditions at the bottom of this page.

What skills should I create?

You can build any skill you want for this challenge.  You can customize our sample templates and make them your own or create one from scratch.  Here are some ideas to get you started:

Fact Skill - plays interesting facts on a particular subject
Joke Skill - tells funny jokes to entertain users
Flash Briefing Skill - can include text or audio content
Sound Skill - plays sleep, relaxation, or meditation sounds
Podcast Skill - plays a podcast, radio station, or other streaming audio
