Echo Button Skills

As of June 15, 2020, the Echo Buttons Skill API interfaces (GameEngine and GadgetController) are no longer available to new skills.

If you're interested in building voice experiences with other types of Alexa Gadgets, please check out Custom Interfaces.

If you already started or published a skill that uses the GameEngine or GadgetController interface, you can continue to access the technical documentation, update the skill, and submit the skill for certification until the interfaces are deprecated on December 1, 2020.

After December 1, 2020, your skill will continue to be available in the Alexa Skills Store and function with Echo Buttons as currently designed. However, you will not be able to submit any updates to your skill without removing the use of the GameEngine and GadgetController interfaces.
