Alexa and nest functionality in the Netherlands..
« on: February 02, 2018, 01:38:03 pm »
Hi.

So I bought myself an echo dot. I myself live in the Netherlands.

So I tried to look up the nest skill in the Alexa app. It didn't show up, turns  out it's not available because of geographical restrictions.

Does anybody know a workaround for this?

I'm building myself a smarthome and I want Alexa to run my place. But that won't work if I can't even enable the nest skill on my echo dot.

Change the location to US. I dun see any major benefits of putting actual non-US address

Ditto. I changed location around for a while, settled on US. Local stuff doesn't work anyway, weather is "fixed" these days, US has the most and the newest skills. Especially if you have a Show...
My Alexa stuff:
Echo Show, Echo Spot, 4 Echo Dots, Fire TV, Fire tablet,
Vobot Alarmclock, Logitech Harmony Hub, house full of Hue lights,
Ring doorbell, Tado smart thermostat, Plex server.

Ok. Cool. Change the location to the us to get all the skills.

But. Will the skills remain enabled once I change the location back again ?

(I'm a newbie, so pardon me asking all the "obvious " questions)
