Amazon Launches 'Alexa-Hosted Skills' for Voice App Developers

Amazon has launched a new service aimed at Alexa developers that automatically provisions and helps them to manage a set of Amazon Web Services (AWS) cloud resources for their Alexa skill's backend service. The service is designed to help developers expedite the time it takes to launch their skills by allowing them to focus on those skills' design and unique features, rather than the cloud services they require.

Developers also will be able to use a new code editor in the ASK Developer Console to edit their code; AWS Lambda will handle routing the skill request, executing the skill's code, and managing the skill's computing resources.

Meanwhile, Amazon S3 can be used for the things the skill needs to store, such as media files.
