Invoke is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 18.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing sound and great features Amazing sound and great features on this Cortana powered device. I wish Microsoft and HK would advertise more as people need to know what a great product this is and what a great assistant Cortana is. I also think the price should remain at the Christmas special price of $99. This device is worth much more, but people need more encouragement to buy it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic sound! We have enjoyed our Invoke and love to listen to the various styles of music. My wife loves to ask everyday what the temperature and weather forecast is.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautifully designed very premium...Love Cortana I bought this for me and one for my dad, so far it's been amazing...setup could not have been easier, sound quality for music and calls is crystal clear, home automation commands work but could be faster (submitted feedback to Microsoft)...seems like it waits a bit too long when a command is given to verbalize and execute. If I say set lights to 10% it waits for a few seconds of silence before it responds. Hope you and Microsoft continue to improve on this device and connected smart home features! Cortana is awesome she sounds great and is very useful for reminders, lists, quick knowledge.

I bought two and may return them; the companies putting them on the market should be able to get them to sync. I want to use these for my whole house but they don't do more than a room. Will syncing be added as a feature soon...if at all???

Asked by: JRBrown
Hi, The Harman/Kardon Invoke cannot be paired with each other as these speakers work independently. You can definitely set up two units using the same Cortana app, with the same account, but they will still work independent of each other. These are self-contained systems, and will not work in tandem.

Can't sync my calendar, skype contacts for calling, and other contacts. How do I fix this? How do I add contacts like she tells me to do with the Cortana app on my phone? I have a Windows 10 Mobile phone and I don't have this option. How???

Asked by: TJSo
Make sure you've set up the Invoke with your windows phone properly by following the instructions on the manual. After you have made sure of that and the issue still appears you will need to contact Microsoft in order to check on the Cortana app. Please check the link below. https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/cortana

can it connect via Bluetooth to a phone to act as a speakerphone?

Asked by: m1rich
Right now, hands-free Bluetooth calling isn’t supported from your Invoke.You can still use your Invoke as an external speaker to stream audio, like podcasts or music, from a Bluetooth device.
