Text Skills Briefing giving me "AudioPlayer is currently an unsupported namespace [...]" in Test Simulator

Im testing a Text Briefing in the Test Simulator with the following json feed:https://www.jasonbase.com/things/bk1x.json

By calling the flash briefing Alexa says "Here's your flash briefing" and then stops.

These are the events in the Device Log: I'm entering the command by text (first event)

[21:58:53:924] - Event: Text.TextMessage

[21:58:54:843] - Directive: SpeechSynthesizer.Speak

[21:58:54:845] - Directive: AudioPlayer.Play

[21:58:54:864] - Directive: SpeechRecognizer.RequestProcessingCompleted

[21:58:54:913] - Event: SpeechSynthesizer.SpeechStarted

[21:58:58:413] - Event: SpeechSynthesizer.SpeechFinished

Hi Georg,

Currently test simulator (beta) doesn't support flash briefing skills.

Login to same developer account into alexa device and on device test your flash briefing skill.

Same here. I use https://echosim.io/ to test. It will ask you to log in with the same amazon account, and then it will become a virtual device that you can test your flash briefing skill on.

+1. It's stupid that testing doesn't work for one of the simplest getting started apps.

I used the Amazon Alexa app on my smartphone. Worked like a charm.
