Title: Mixing US and European skills?
Post by: daffy98 on January 13, 2019, 11:34:16 am
I am "international".

What is the best way to mix US and European skills?

Case in point: How can I have both the Swiss NZZ news and the US Washington Post news?

Right now, the only option I see is to have (at last) two distinct Echo devices, each tied to a distinct account, and each tied to a different wake-up word - with all the pain that this entails.

(FWIW, I am well aware of digital rights management / DRM, differences in local laws, ...Still, this is Planet Earth.)

As far as I can make out, you can't.  I live in France, but don't speak much French, so I want to use English skills. I can't unless I fix my address as one in the UK - which I don't want to do for various and complicated reasons.

I noticed today that I can now access UK skills at my location in France.

This, for me, is a huge improvement.
