Today that support was released in the UK.

Here’s a description of the app:
The HTC U11 with HTC Alexa is the world’s first phone to feature always-ready, hands-free access to Amazon Alexa. This means that when you can ask questions such as “Alexa, what’s the weather today?” or “Alexa, turn on my living room lights” and have Alexa respond to your needs anywhere and anytime once your phone is unlocked. With HTC Edge Sense, you can also squeeze your phone to invoke HTC Alexa, so you can choose the method that’s easiest and most intuitive for you.
With the HTC Alexa app, you can: listen to Amazon Music & Audible; receive weather and flash news briefings; manage shopping and to do lists and even your home with the increasing array of smart home products; and of course, there’s the 15,000-plus skills in the Alexa Skills Store for even more capabilities. And, as Amazon Alexa is powered in the cloud, it is always getting smarter with new features, and skills.
