Reply, Amazon Echo use in Torrox: For Anthea and anyone else interested. Yes, Amazon Echo will work in Torrox- but you need to set it up in the UK, using downloaded app, get it working then, when in Spain, change to your wifi network and you are off. Using the app in the UK sets it to the UK. I use mine for all BBC radio stations. Good luck! Vicki Dowd, Liverpool, bobdowd @ btinternet .com
