Amazon has sent out invitations to a mysterious event on September 14th to UK publications. If you ask Alexa what’s happening on that date, she responds with “I promised I wouldn’t tell, but a visit to London has always been on my bucket list.” While that isn’t confirmation of Alexa finally becoming available in the UK on that date, it’s pretty telling. There’s no clue whether we can expect any new Amazon devices that day, or if the existing Amazon Echo, Echo Dot, and Amazon Tap will become available in the UK that day. Hopefully, at the very least, Alexa in all UK Fire TVs will come alive that day, since the hardware is identical to US Fire TVs, which have had Alexa for nearly a year.
