Roomba 960 Irobot Home skill not found on alexa

Postby dartboy09 » April 16th, 2018, 12:21 pm

Hello all.
I am brand new, this looks like a great forum for me (getting into robotics lately).

I do have a question about the Roomba. We purchased a 960 yesterday, have joined it to the wifi and have the app on phone (in fact its running at home right now thanks to a schedule!!).

I am having some major trouble though, getting Alexa involved.
The directions simple state to go enabled the "iRobot HOME" skill on Alexa....problem is, I can't find that skill.
Alex App does not come back with any IRobot results.

I have tried searching on 2 phones, tried searching on nothing comes back.
Google search Irobot skill alexa and you get a "404 missing page" type error.

Is anyone aware of any issues? Did Amazon yank the skill? I contacted IRobot and they said they are still "friends" with Amazon.

I am hoping someone can help me out here.

Thanks in advance.

I enabled the skill and it works. Not sure it is that useful. It comes up in the Alexa app for me as a skill. I am on Android.

The skill is still there.

Here is a direct link to the skill:

You should be able to add it directly to alexa using that link.
