Got skills? Bring your big idea to life with Alexa and reap the benefits. Developers in the US and Canada–publish a skill in May, submit the form below, and earn an Alexa backpack. And here's an extra special perk for the most popular skills if your skill attracts 1,000 unique customers in its first 30 days in the Alexa Skills Store, you will also earn an Echo Plus to help you make Alexa even smarter.
Use our templates to get started quickly, then build the skill of your daydreams. Once you publish your skill, don't forget to promote your skill to increase usage so you can earn an Echo Spot. To increase engagement, distribute your skill globally to reach users worldwide who've configured their Alexa-enabled devices to use a language that your skill supports.
All skill types are eligible for this promotion. See updated terms and conditions below the form. Please note: You may only apply to the Alexa monthly promotion in the country you reside in, or you will be ineligible for all current Alexa promotions.
If you're not in the US or Canada, check out our other promotions in the UK, Germany, Japan, France, Australia, and India to see if your country of residence is covered by those promotions.
Log in to the developer portal and start building your new skill today.
This is very similar to last month's Alexa developer skill promotion. This month, you get a backpack instead of a hat just for publishing a skill, and you get an Echo Plus instead of an Echo Spot for getting 1000 unique users. (The text I copied above mentions an Echo Dot once instead of an Echo Plus, but on the promotion page, it says Echo Plus again farther down, so I think they just forgot to change Echo Spot from last month's promotion to Echo Plus in one place.)
