Smartthings Edge and future Alexa integration support

I have been using my Smartthings hub along with Alexa for quite a while now. Alexa uses the Smartthings skill and I have created many virtual switches using the Alexa DHT. I am converting all of these VSs to Edge and this working fine so far. All of zigbee devices are directly connected to the ST hub but are visible within Alexa via the ST skill. Will I be able to maintain this Alexa/ST integration going forward? If so, what do I need to do to ensure continuity during the overall ST migration to edge?

Other than converting all your virtual devices, the only problem you will see with Alexa during the Edge transition is multi-component devices (double switches, power strips, etc.). The sub-devices aren’t exposed to Alexa for Edge drivers.
