    Hi Travis,

    Thank you for posting your question. AWS is always changing and they have a lot of updates on their service. This change was done quite recently, just two months ago (March 2020):

    https://aws.amazon.com/blogs/storage/aws-snowball-device-update-evolving-at-the-edge/

    Take note that it will take about 6 months before any new change will be reflected in the actual AWS exam, as per the official AWS Certification FAQs:

    When AWS releases a new product or service, how soon will it appear on the exam?

    A new product, service, or feature must be generally available (GA) for 6 months prior to it appearing on a certification exam. Note that this applies only to certification exams, not training: training will cover new services and features more quickly. The AWS Certification team wants to ensure candidates have enough time to work with new services and features before they are assessed against the new material.

    Reference: https://aws.amazon.com/certification/faqs/

    We will eventually update this scenario after a few months when we have confirmed that AWS also updated its exam.
