Echoshow skills: web-view can't redirect to an external link.

Hi, my team is working with Alexa skills. In some skills, we'll open our website in a webview to show some info of the user (we use response.addDirective()).


The issue is, from our website we can't redirect to any external link but only within our website, for example, we can't redirect to amazon.com (neither opening a new tab or redirecting in current tab)
We've tried a link <a>, using window.location.assign(), window.location.replace(), or even router.push(), none of these works although they perform perfectly in real browsers.

Can somebody from the Amazon Alexa team please clarify this, and whether there are any workarounds?

Thanks a lot,

Vule.
