Roku stick models and higher-end Roku devices use a WiFi remote that should work even if it is not visible. I think even the basic Express will work with a WiFi remote, but it only comes with a basic IR.

For ones that come with a wifi remote, yes. Like the Express+ 2019, Premiere plus 3921, and Roku Ultra. And Roku Stick plus 3810 which can only be controlled via wifi remote.

I have a plain Express (2018?), and there is a menu entry to pair a remote, so I assume all current models could support one. That said, buying a Roku WiFi remote on it's own is probably as much as an Express itself.

If the express & express plus are not 3700 series then yes it can be paired with wifi remote.
