Title: Alexa set up in Spain
Post by: Buckothelesser on July 31, 2018, 12:34:05 pm
I just bought an Echo Dot and brought it to Spain. I have turned it on and followed the order to follow the instructions in the Alexa App. When I click on configuration I get the message  THE ITEM YOU'VE REQUESTED IS NOT AVAILABLE IN THE SPANISH STORE, BUT IT IS AVAILABLE IN THE UK STORE. TAP CHANGE STORE TO VIEW THIS ITEM.

When I change store I get the message: YOUR ACCOUNT IS NOT VALID FOR USE IN THE UK STORE. YOU MUST SWITCH TO THE SPANISH STORE BEFORE PURCHASING. !!!!!

Can somebody please help me ?  >:(

Download Aptoide from your appstore and then download the Alexa app through that (if I'm understanding your problem correctly).
You will have problems using the Dot in Spain as it's not AFAIK officially available there.  It won't recognise your address, for one thing.

Hi everyone.

I have a similar problem to the original poster. I bought an Echo Plus when I was in the UK just over a month ago and brought it back to France where I currently live. I was initially able to ask Alexa to 'play music' or to play a particular artist but all it does now is is 'getting the last station you listened to'.  I see that someone has recommended downloading Aptoid - will this help me?

Many thanks

Amazon Alexa is a virtual assistance built in Amazon echo. Alexa has the capability to control your home gadgets your smart tv, lights, extenders, thermostats and more. So if you recently purchased an Amazon echo and want to install your Echo, here are some Step by step detail information for New echo dot setup (http://www.google.com/)

On your Amazon Echo or Amazon Echo Dot you will see a LED light circling on the top of your device and within 1 or 2 minutes your Amazon Alexa setup assistance app on your IOS, Android or Amazon tablet will guide you through to install your device.

To Setup Amazon Echo or Amazon Echo Dot, you should have an Amazon Account.
