The alexa app does not display a mode option for my thermostat but I can set mode by voice

I have experimentally created a thermostat smart home device device. By voice I am able to control temperature and mode of the device however in the app under the thermostat there is no mode selector. I have set the display type to "THERMOSTAT", is there anything else I must do to have the app display the option to change the mode settings ?. Bellow is my discovery response
