I am working on Smart Home Camera Skill. Test simulator says "Testing is currently not available for your skill."

I'm not able to test My Smart home skill (camera skill) on Simulator. I've submitted all the details in configuration section correctly and when i say 'discover device in my skill' it get proper response from my lambada function. Since i dont have Echo Show and i am in india , i'm trying to use simulator for my skill testing but its disabled.

It's by design feature that the test simulator is not available for smart home skill. What do you want to see from Echo show? Can you try on other echo devices?

This doc means that custom skill with echo show display can be tested in beta test simulator, but for smart home skill, test is always disabled.

This became unavailable suddenly without any obvious reason. I had been testing my skill for a month now without problems, but suddenly this has been switched off.

What is your skill? Custom or Smart home?
