Amazon US releases tools for kid skills in Alexa

Source: retaildive, Wednesday, Jun 19, 2019

Amazon previewed its suite of new tools that allow developers to build kid skills with in-skill purchasing (ISP) for the US Alexa Skills Store. Developers interested in creating kid skill programming with ISP can submit their ideas to Amazon for approval.

Alexa app users can opt out of voice purchasing in kid skills, which will stop the voice discovery for premium kid skill content. Additionally, when a customer agrees to purchase, the account holder will receive an SMS or email to approve or decline a transaction within 24 hours.
