Today, we are excited to announce the general availability of the new Alexa Skills Kit developer console, providing a streamlined experience to help you create, manage, and publish all Alexa skills. With this announcement, the new console becomes the default home for all Alexa developer accounts, replacing the old console experience. In addition to complete parity to the old console, the new Alexa developer console offers a refreshed user interface and new functionalities, making it easier than ever to manage the entire lifecycle of your Alexa skill. With the updated navigation, you easily organize your skill tasks into the build, test, launch, and measure phases.
New Additions to the Developer Console
We were excited to see so many of you engage with the public beta of the console and based on your feedback, we are adding even more features to enhance your development experience in a single integrated environment. The console uses English by default, but now also supports the Japanese language.
To help you access your skills quickly within the console, we have added the Your Skills link on the top navigation. You can now easily copy the skill ID from the Skill List page or via Endpoint on the Build page, as shown below:
