“Since we introduced Alexa in India last year, thousands of developers have published informative and engaging skills on the India store. In just over a year, the number of skills available for customers has doubled from 10,000 to more than 20,000,” said Dilip R.S., Country Manager for Alexa Skills, Amazon India. “We’re focused on enabling developers to create even more useful and engaging experiences for our customers, and we’re excited to see what experiences the developer community creates next.”
If you are a developer and want to know how to create engaging skills for the Indian audience, Amazon has some tips to offer for improving their existing skills

to promote their Alexa skills and reach more customers. If a skill qualifies for the reward, its developer will receive an email from the Alexa team. The email will cover the next steps for registration and payment account setup.

Once the skill you developed is qualified for the reward program, the developer will receive an email from the Alexa team.
