Alexa Flash Briefing conflict with RSS tags

Hi,

I have a live Flash briefing skill in Alexa, which pulls from an RSS feed.

It was working correctly, until I've added the following Googleplay tags into RSS feed:

<googleplay:author>....</googleplay:author>

<googleplay:category text="Kids & Family"/>

<googleplay:description>...</googleplay:description>

<googleplay:image href="...">

Addition of these tags interfered with the correct updating of flash briefing...it was like the feed remained on a previous episode and didn't refresh.

Is there any reason why would these additional tags conflict with Amazon Flash Briefing Update?

Thanks!

You probably want to format your RSS feed as per the tech docs - an incorrect format can most definitely cause problems.
