    Alexa - other country/language

    Finally now Alexa is in some country in non english language, example her in Italy and Germany.

    but skill for Fusion is only on US markeplace, so is'nt usable for us, international apex user.

    Any planning to release skill for other marketlplace? I have a netatmo weather station and work fine, from the date of releasing alexa in italy

    Currently, we only plan on supporting English speaking locations. Are you asking about an Italian translation of the skill or asking for the English version to be available in Italy?

    Not it's a problem to speak in english.. The problem is that the fusion skill is not available on non-US marketplace. So if you want to install, you must to change amazon account to amazon.com and after,
    the "local" skills are not usable (a crazy Amazon limitation!)

    so: if i want to use fusion skill, i cannot use the other my installed italian marketplace skills...

    Unfortunately, there's no way for us to enable the English skill in the Italian marketplace. This is a limitation that Amazon has placed on how the skill marketplace works. I would suggest providing feedback directly to Amazon about this issue. I am seeing a lot of other posts about the same request: English skills in countries where Amazon doesn't have an English option, like Italy and Germany. Hopefully they will change their minds and allow this in the future.

    Me too here. I bought the dot only to try to use with apex. I use some vocal command with Siri thought a IOT server (home-assistant on linux OS) with a simple programming and can make some simply operation (oN/Off outputs). But the system with Alexa seem more powerful at this moment.

    I installed the apex skill, but you must to chance the marketplace of your account from our European to US. So whole account, not only echo. Then you revert (for normal use with amazon) to our local amazon, you lose the US-skills...

    crazy Amazon limits. So my echo is now returned in the box.

    Thx à lot for answering. Unfortunately I tryed to change marketplace on every Amazon apps. But impossible to download. Don't know if I keep my echodot and hold on for a French update or ask for a refund.
