"Alexa, wake me up at 7am on weekdays with Soft Pop Hits on Spotify" has been working for me for 2 weeks now in France on my UK/US imported Echo devices.
[Edit] Oops, sorry, might have been working for me because I set my Amazon account as US #facepalm

They are advertising that feature on the UK site so really expect it to be available on the spot and all devices at the same time next week

Where have you seen it on the UK site? I've searched the online help, but I can only find music alarms on amazon.com and not amazon.co.uk.

I ordered one in white with the £10 off promotion. Delivery early February. The Verge has a review here for anyone interested.

We bought 2 Spots & got the pack discount.

Using them over the weekend, they almost got sent back as it feels very much a version 1 product. By Monday we had decided to keep them both because at the moment, the Alexa system just pipped Siri in our testing for our particular requirements.

I can't understand the project meeting where they decided on just 7 clock faces? To get around the poor clock face design & the "Try This" adverts, we have both Spots in night node 24/7.
