Don't bother with the Echo Plus
5 September 2018
Perhaps if you live in the USA, this device will be of use.
But in Sydney, Australia, where I purchased the device and live, it is useless.
Both the device and the app are poorly implemented.
It took no time at all to set up the Google device; I have had the Echo Plus for three days and, still, having trouble with set up. When you ask for weather, a radio station or something else that requires localisation, it produces the weather in Western Australia, a USA radio station unknown to me and, it seems, pop versions of well-known classical pieces.
Yes, I have gone through the set up steps, several times, but no result. I have localised the device using the app on my iPhone, but no good.
I will give it another day and, then, request a return.
Google works fine and with no difficulty
I don't think Amazon took Alexa seriously and neither should we!
