Echo setup in France
« on: October 04, 2017, 03:36:20 pm »
I have a UK Amazon Echo Dot & live in France. I have both French & UK Amazon accounts ...
I’s there any reason why setup shouldn’t work? I downloaded the App off the UK site ok but it won’t accept my UK Acct password for some reason ...

Hello,
I bought a Dot last week-end in London and had no problem setting it up back in France.
I've downloaded the Amazon Alexa APK and installed it on my smarphone, using my UK Amazon account.
Everything is working well, so happy I have already pre-ordered the next Echo from Amazon :)

Hi.

My echo dot won't find my French address. I'd like weather and traffic updates. Has anyone any idea how I can rectify this?
Tia.

Hi Tia, I was able to change my address to my French address.
Use your browser on your PC - www.alexa.amazon.co.uk/
Log into your account (I've got an Amazon.co.uk account).
Settings
Select your Alexa device
Scroll down to GENERAL, Device Location and edit your location here
You can also change your time zone here.
Good luck
Ian

Hi
I've tried that but I don't have France listed there, probable because it is not an officially supported country yet  :(
I live in France and I've set up my Echo on a US account so far.
Can you see France in your list ?! :o

Hi All

I am another potential user living in SW France.  I am about to buy an Echo Dot via my UK Amazon account and have it shipped to a friend for onward postage here.  I will post again (or beg for help) once it arrives.  :)

I bought an Echo Dot in the UK and am now I'm working in SE Asia. I have the same problem here. I can change my time zone, but the Echo will not accept the fact that I'm in the Philippines. All local stuff I ask Alexa is still based on the original location. Very disappointing. Why can't Amazon understand that people don't stay in one place all the time.

I know you're in the Philippines because you are very specific where you are. Of course I will know coz I was born there.
