Cant seem to test skill on my phone - alexa says hmmm cant recognise


I built my first skill a name capturing skill. But when I try to test on my phone Alexa says she doesn’t recognize it, doesn’t know etc.

This is the invocation is “Alexa, start name capture”

The skill works when I test on Voiceflow but in the real world.

What am I doing wrong?




I recommend using test simulator in Alexa Developer Console with your “voice”, then you can check how alexa recognize what you say.
