How do I set up an Amazon Echo in South Africa?
It appears that I need the Amazon Alexa app installed on my Samsung phone, but the app isn't available in SA:crying:
Thanks

I have Alexa on my Fire HD.
These Amazon devices are a bit confusing to understand, even if it is running on Android...

You can access the web app at http://alexa.amazon.com

Make sure you are on the same wifi network and then you will be able to control your Echo.

Another way is to change the country/region on your play store account to US and then download the Alexa app. I had to do that to the App Store on my iPhone.

A bit of schlep but that's the only way for South Africans.

I got bored with my Echo, still seems doff speaking to this thing, most I get out of it is asking about the weather.
