Roku Express not working with Amazon Echo

I did a search of the Community forums and the only thread I found that was somewhat applicable to my issue was from 2019 and the solution given in that thread will not solve the problem I'm having.

I am trying to get my Roku Express to work with my 4th Generation Echo Dot. When I ask the Echo to launch something on my Roku it says it can't. Any assistance that someone can provide to get this issue solved is appreciated.


  • Software is up to date on both the Roku and Echo Dot.
  • Both the Roku and Echo Dot are connected to the same WiFi network.
  • The Alexa skill is linked to my Roku account.
  • On the "Your Linked Devices" on the Alexa skill is my Roku device is listed.
  • I disabled and reenabled the Roku skill in the Alexa app and that did not correct the issue.
  • I am using the command "Alexa, launch Netflix on Roku" to try to get it to work.
