Welcome to issue #51. What a week! Welcome to the exciting new world where Alexa speaks German and the Queen's English. Amazon is now shipping the Echo, Dot, and Tap to the UK and Germany, and, of course, where they go Alexa goes. There are a few articles linked below about the announcement.

I've discovered that the skill listings are different for each country, which makes sense.

In case you missed it, My Talking Alexa podcast is live. It's a daily show where I cover a great skill, an Alexa feature, and often include something about home or life automation and news from the Alexa world. It's targeted at the consumer/user of Alexa. I'd love to know what you think.

You can listen via TuneIn on Alexa, iTunes, or your podcast app.

Thanks for reading and letting others know about us - that helps! If you find or create any great resources for ASK/AVS Developers, drop me a note.
