Can I use this with an Amazon Alexa echo dot? Our fire stick is controlled with an echo Dot and I'd like to pair the echo Dot and invoke for better sound.

Asked by: Kkelly09
You can use it as a Bluetooth speaker for an echo. Also you can open Alexa from the Invoke. You must activate the skill first. Certain things are limited thou. Much more can be done with Cotana and IFTTT.

Does Invoke connect to siriusXM?

Asked by: Crazyee27
Does not connect with SiriusXM so you would have to subscribe one of the only 3 Music apps. They need to open that up to all. Cant even use it as a speaker for your own Music. :( Disappointing because I really like the device quality.

I have two houses. Can I have an Invoke set up in each location and use the same password etc. information?

Asked by: aldon
As both devices would be set up over different WIFI networks, this would probably not be possible. Please visit https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/cortana for more info or submit a case request at https://www.harmanaudio.com/support-contact.html with more information around your set up in each house, and the Customer Service Team will be more than happy to assist you.

Invoke has an amazing sound. It is a wireless and bluetooth streaming speaker. I am wondering if this is DLNA compatible and allows streaming from other devices like PC's to it? My question is not about Bluetooth streaming but about network stream?

Is INVOKE wireless..? I'm not able to use it without keeping it plugged to the adapter.

Asked by: Rats
It's wireless in a way that it connects to the internet. It needs to be plugged in to the power cord at all time since it's not portable.
