Music Validation Tool Overview

Amazon requires that devices including Alexa Music feature must be certified for music functionality before launching that device to the public. Certifying Alexa Music on a device ensures that the device adequately supports music partners such as Amazon Music, iHeartRadio, and SiriusXM. To facilitate validating your device against the Music Certification checklist, Amazon offers a Music Validation Tool (MVT) for developers.
