Understand Echo Button Skills

Echo Buttons are full-color LED push buttons that connect to compatible Amazon Echo devices over Bluetooth. By creating a skill that uses the Gadgets Skill API, you can create experiences that illuminate the buttons and react to button presses. For example, you can create sequence games, first-to-respond games, multiple choice games, and so on. For information about Echo Buttons, see How Echo Buttons Work.

Echo Button Skill Concepts

An Echo Button skill is a custom skill with extra capabilities, so it needs to have the same components as any custom skill. For example, your skill must define an interaction model that maps spoken input to requests that your skill can handle. For information about custom skills, see the custom skill documentation.
