You can build, edit, and publish Alexa skills without leaving the Alexa Developer Console using Alexa-hosted skills (beta). With an Alexa-hosted skill, there's no need to create your own AWS account. Instead, the Alexa-hosted skill will automatically provision and manage AWS cloud services for your skill’s back end. This allows you to build skills faster and spend your time designing engaging experiences, rather than managing cloud services. If you decide to have Alexa host your skill, you'll get access to our code editor, which will allow you to deploy code directly to AWS Lambda from the developer console.
