When you integrate AVS into your devices, you provide your customers with a built-in Alexa experience that enables them to control any Works with Alexa smart home device, access thousands of Alexa skills, play Flash Briefings, stream music and books, and more, using just their voice. You also become part of a growing community, and you’ll reach new customers looking to access Alexa in new ways in and out of the home.
Customers expect a familiar experience with Alexa. We've published a series of design guidelines and best practices to help you during the development and launch process. All device makers creating products with Alexa built-in must adhere to the Functional Design Guide.

To provide your customers with streaming media access from Amazon Music, Spotify, Pandora, SiriusXM, TuneIn, iHeartRadio, Audible, and other third-party services on your device, you will need to submit it for music certification. If you do not want to provide media streaming services on your device, move on to the next step once you've completed the self-test checklists.
Complete the security and testing requirements and receive the Alexa Built-in badge.
