With the Hue you need a separate bridge.

Been talking to a mate who was an F16 fighter pilot for the USAF years ago. He said all spoken warnings in the cockpit are female because people (that's both men and women) react faster to a female voice!

I was also in the RAF. I can confirm that a female voice is used in flight decks for general information or commands, however if it is an emergency the voice is male

In trying to connect to an echo dot, I have to install the Alexa app. Download this, then I'm asked to log into Amazon. When I enter the email address and password etc, I get a page which just says, you need to enable cookies in your browser. 

Now, cookies are already enabled. I have the normal amazon app installed, and I can use that without logging in, just as normal. 

I've cleared cache. Restarted phone. Uninstalled the app, and reinstalled. But everytime I try to log in on the Alexa app, I just get the message about allowing cookies. 

Anyway out of this cycle? Apart from chucking the dot into the bin?

What browser are you using?

Here's some generic suggestions for you to try:

Try adding the offending site to the Trusted Sites list
Use a different web browser such as Chrome or Firefox if possible
Switch on Compatibility mode for this site
If you have problems with a phone app, try on a desktop or laptop.

Good luck.
