With Twilio Autopilot you can build Alexa Skills. On this page we'll walk you through how to link Alexa and Autopilot. These steps will link the two:

  1. Go to developer.amazon.com, log in, and go to Developer Console
  2. Go to the Alexa Skills Kit tab

  5. On the next tab, choose Custom Skill and hit the Create Skill button
  6. Once you're in the builder IDE, click on the Invocation sidebar tab
    1. Pick an invocation name. This is the name used to invoke the skill say, "owl cafe", from the phrase "Alexa, ask owl cafe to order me a coffee"
    2. Hit Save
  7. Click on the JSON editor sidebar button
    1. Paste the JSON that you find in the Autopilot Console in Channels -> Alexa
    2. Hit save

  9. When your build is finished successfully, go to the Test tab and interact with Autopilot by typing or saying "ask <your skill name> <something something>"
