If you've built and tested a skill to enable customers to control your smart devices using Alexa, you're ready to submit it for certification. After your skill passes certification, it will be published in the Alexa Skills Store for your customers to discover and use. There, your skill can reach tens of millions of customers through devices with Alexa like Amazon Echo, Echo Dot, and Echo Show. Refer to our Smart Home Skill Publishing Guide to ensure your skill meets the special certification requirements for this skill type.
