Echgo supports the Alexa voice languages: English (US), English (UK), English (India), French, Japanese and German.

Echgo currently does not support Amazon Music due to Alexa doesn't allow the use of Amazon Music in apps. Only hardware implementations are allowed to play Amazon Music at this time.

An Amazon account is required in order to sign in and use Alexa service. This is a requirement of Amazon. Echgo is never given your Amazon account credentials.
