Subscribe to timer events

My objective is to receive a notification when a timer fires. I have set this timer from within my skill and is working as expected. However, I am not able to find any documentation that explains how to subscribe to timer events. This page https://developer.amazon.com/en-US/docs/alexa/smapi/alexa-timers-api-reference.html mentions that it is possible to subscribe to timers events. It points to this page https://developer.amazon.com/en-US/docs/alexa/smapi/skill-events-in-alexa-skills.html for details on which it states to create an event object in the skill.json file as per this page https://developer.amazon.com/en-US/docs/alexa/smapi/skill-manifest.html. The events object however has no such thing as timer events. Am I missing something? Is there a comprehensive guide for how to subscribe to timer events?


Thanks,

Robert

Bump: Anyone from amazon dev team please? This is a pretty simple question and should only take 5 min to answer. The functionality is stated to be available but just can't find the docs.


Thanks,

Robert
