Make a us or uk Google account and install it is the easiest way.

Does changing the timezone to here still work? I was reading this article here and a comment from 4 days ago says it doesn't work anymore...

I have been meaning to ask I at first had the echo then I bought a dot then I sold my echo and I find the dot seems to do everything the echo does. What am I missing?

The echo has reportedly better audio because the enclosure is bigger so there's better 'bass'.
The benefit of the dot is that there is an audio out so you can play music via an external pair of speakers. The problem is the speech also goes via the external speakers which doesn't work at all is the amplifier is off.
I'd be keen to hear if amazon are going to do an update whereby the speech is via the in-built speaker so it's always on but the music will be ported to the audio output. That would be bangin'.

Check out the new Echo Show.

I think I might be ordering a new Gadget. 

 

Should we start a new thread, or use existing one? I don't think a new thread is that useful. Thoughts @freitasm ?

Yes it works! You can call or message others in NZ who have an Amazon echo... It's a revolution!!!!!! Just update the apk and you're good to go! The echo glows green when you have a message!
