ALL the Skills available in The Republic of America, COULD be made available in the UK.
It just probably isn't financially feasible at this time.
Think how many Shops are in America against how many in UK, each would have to be willing to pay Amazon a few pence (dollars).
I don't see what the number of shops in the US vs the UK has anything to do with whether skills or features are available here. And what makes you think that this would require every shop to make a payment to Amazon?
There is a video on youtube that shows you how to do this, it basically involves switching your location to the USA and then back again BUT and its a big BUT, once you do this your alexa devices dont work with the app, i tried it and they are shown as offline. And any other (non amazon) devices in your alexa app simply disappear.
here is the video, id be interested to know if any one gets it to work without losing all your devices
I did exactly what DVDMRY did above where you change your location to the US then change it back again AND just like he mentioned I have lost all my alexas on the app...... Been tearing my hair out over this.
@dvdnry how did you fix the issue? I changed location back to the UK but the 2 other dot devices won't show up on my network again
