How could i test in English(UK)

I setup a new language - English(UK) by add a same lambda in eu-west-1, set geo location lambda in skill and copy almost all other setting from English(US).

But i found i couldn't make alexa to call the eu-west-1 lambda rather than us-east-1 one. (Note that i am in China)

I've tried to:

Set language to English(UK) in Echo Show and ask Echo Show to discover devices.

Ask my friend in UK to discover devices on Alexa app.

All the requests were routed to us-east-1.

I wonder how alexa choose lambda?

For the UK, the Lambda endpoint needs to be in EU(Ireland).

The docs for 'Develop Smart Home Skills in Multiple Languages' explains the requirements and how to configure.

To fully test the functionality in the UK, you'll need to create an Amazon.co.uk account and link a device.
