Hi. The Faithlife Alexa skill is still not available in the UK. Can you please investigate and try and make this available to those of us over here, Thanks :-)

Switch your device language to US English, and I suspect the skill will work just fine.

Thanks Jan. I tried doing but unfortunately it didnt work. I trued changing language settings, even location, but it still didn't recognise Faithlife as a skill

Has anyone in the UK managed to get Alexa talking to Faithlife?!

Maybe language and location settings is not sufficient.

When I relocated from Cambodia to Germany earlier this year, I changed my Amazon account from amazon.com to amazon.de and in the process lost a whole bunch of Alexa and Kindle features.

After realizing all that was gone (most important, Kindle Freetime to be able to have separate user accounts for the kids) I transferred my account back to amazon.com.

I didn't try the FL skill while I was on amazon.de, but quite possibly you'll be able to use it if you transfer your whole amazon account to amazon.com.

This has a major impact of course since you'll no longer be able to buy anything from the amazon.co.uk Kindle store.

One thing I've just noticed is that on the US Alexa Faithlife skill page, the supported language is simply "English." https://www.amazon.com/Faithlife-Corporation/dp/B01J6U1ABM 

Other skills that are available in multiple regions seem to list those languages, e.g. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01I5GYM72?ref=skillrw_dsk_pnps_dp_2 

I wonder if Faithlife simply needs to update the skill to include multiple languages?! I don't know how this works, but I'm really keen to use this skill in the UK!

+1,

I also believe it has something to do with the difference between English (US) and English (UK)

Hi there,

I was able to update the skill settings and make it available for devices that have their language set to English U.K. Enjoy :)

Great. Thanks a lot for the update. I have been waiting for this for over a year so it is a fantastic new years present. 

Is there a definitive list of what we can get alexa to do for us ?
