Had an Echo today - have set my address in the UK. What should I be able to get to work? Tune in? Iheartradio? Prime music?

Thanks for the reply.

Thought I had read that prime music won't work here in the UK?

After changing my settings within the control panel to my UK address, I now have local info. I am able to add a UK address now.
If I ask Alexa where my nearest McDonalds is for instance, she tells me my local one and its location. Also, when asked "what is the weather", I get my UK locations weather correctly.
Of course, still with an American accent but that will be able to be changed with the UK release on Sept 28th 2016.

No IFTTT - I've seen people say its coming later this year but nothing official yet.
