Hi, wonder if anyone can help me ?

Love the new Alexa Skill.

Can you change the temperature from Fahrenheit to Celcius in the Alexa Skill, as i am in the U.K

Thank you in advance

Good suggestion. We have changed the temperature to Celsius except if
user's language setting is USA (en-US).

I've now changed my language to UK too, thanks for this change. Is there a reason the Wireless Tags Alexa skill cannot read the temperature units setting instead?

i.e. in Alexa Settings: Temperature Units: Use metric measurements for temperature units.

I had to change my Alexa Settings back to US English to access US English only Alexa Skills. Previously the Wireless Tag Skill would report in Fahrenheit only when the Echo was set to US English, regardless of the measurement units setting (F/C) in the Echo Settings. Today I checked and it is now speaking my measurements in Celsius!

Interestingly, changing the measurement units in Alexa Settings does not make any difference, so I can only assume at this point that the Alexa Skill is now reading the Wireless Tag account settings to identify which temperature units to use when reporting, which is a logical implementation.

Support, did you update the Wireless Tag (Informational) Skill?  If so, the change is very welcome, thank you!

Alexa skill now follows the setting you configured in the Wireless Tag app, inside the temperature options screen.
