Somewhat concerned about having a device listen in on all things discussed in my home. Lots of privacy issues.

I got nothing to worry about there. Anybody interested in listening in on my general chit chat would have to be a sad person indeed. lol

I will have a go with this tomorrow or tuesday and report back on the sonos integration!

Reviews are not great, but it is a beta (I think).

I think if you change the language to US, it assumes your in the states and connects to American servers. Just an observation, not sure if it's any use? Lol
Reason i recon this is, earlier i asked Alexa for Dirty Boulevard by Lou Reed, and the American accent said "i can't find it". Now I've had it playing before, so I changed back to UK and it played it. :)
