Echosim.io keeps saying "something went Wrong. Oops"

Hello -

I see that all the invocations that I make in "echosim.io" are failing with the error "something went Wrong. Oops". It started happening all of a sudden.

I see that our skill is working fine and getting tested successfully by the text based "service simulator" in the developer.amazon.com

Even generic invocations like "Alexa what is the weather today" etc also not working in echosim for now. Tried in multiple PCs (also tested in office LAN, Home LAN etc) but result is the same.

Echosim.io stopped working for me a long time ago. Has it worked for anyone this year? I see it appears they've added some console log features since I last used it successfully.

Have you tried to print out the log about the request you made and viewed it in cloudwatch? If you are able to do this please also paste the log here.

I tried your skill in both Echo dot and Amazon mShop App, they are working fine. I can also repro the “something went wrong” issue in Echosim, but looks like it’s an Echosim bug that out of our control. I will suggest you try to use Amazon mShop app for testing if you don’t have an actual Echo device.

Hi,I had same issue on Echosim,and Idon't have actual Echo device yet.

Now I'm testing my alexa skill at https://developer.amazon.com with text message. I want to test using simulator (that support Japanese),but I'm not sure what Amazon mShop app is.Is there some way to test?

You can press the microphone button to wake up Alexa in your mShop app.

thanks you for your reply.

I think Amazon mShop app means ShoppingApp on appstore https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.amazon.mShop.android.shopping&hl=ja, I tried it and could use alexa at amazon.com account, but there are no Japanese support, and Japanese store (amazon,co.jp) has voice support,but it's not alexa.

So maybe there are no way to test alexa using the voice without echosim.io,now.

I hope that echosim.io to be fixed,until we can buy alexa device..thanks
