According to Phillips the Second Generation Bridge does work with both the Apple HomeKit through Siri and with Amazon's Echo through Alexa.

About the 220v: Philips Hue bulbs US-standard "110v" Hue A19 bulbs work with 220 volts, even though they are rated for "110" volts.
However, Philips Hue Lux bulbs, which are rated for 110 volts, will not work with 220 volts, according to reports these will start flickering after a few hours of use.

Thank you.
