What is the purpose of this program?

The purpose of this program is to allow Amazon Echo users to test and find new skills that they would recommend to others. Echo users will be rewarded with prizes from Amazon and skill creators will receive feedback on how to improve their Alexa Skills. This will help create a better user experience for Amazon customers and more engaging skills by Alexa Skill Developers.

I left a review but it’s not showing up?

It may take up to 48 hours for the review to get approved. If it doesn't get approved after about 3 days, you can email review-appeals@amazon.com with your profile link and order number and ask them to approve or deny it.


How do i find my reviews on Amazon?

  1. Go to personalization > Your public Profile.
  2. Under your profile picture, go to Activities>Reviews.

Can i change or update a review after it’s been submitted?

The ability to 'Edit' feedback was removed years ago. Amazon only allows you to delete feedback within 60 days of leaving it. If you make a mistake when evaluating and submitting feedback, you can delete it, but you can't edit it.


How long will I have to wait for a decision on my application?

We know you are excited to get started as an beta tester. So, we are working hard to make decisions on new accounts as quickly as possible. Once you have submitted your application, we will provide you with an expected time frame for a decision and we will notify you of the decision via email as soon as it has been made.
