Invoke is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 26.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent with Cortana Cortana and Spotify made this the most fun speaker ever built. Great speaker quality that fills even a large room. There is still room for improvement and collaboration but it is still worth every single penny.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Impressive speaker The fit and finish on this speaker is top notch and it feels solid. The sound and volume output is excellent for its size as well (maybe a tad bright), and the mics work easily across the room. Playback with Spotify Premium sounds especially good. Cortana works well and supports all the basic digital assistant tasks (fact lookups, math calculations, reminders, timers etc.), and the list of skills has expanded quite a bit over the past couple of months (still waiting on Pandora integration however and would also like to see the ability to stream audio directly from Windows itself) I also regularly use the speaker paired to Bluetooth so I can play things like Amazon music that aren't directly supported. Not too much to complain about, but I wish this speaker also had a line in.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good quality, good sound, Cool Cortana assistant! I love the speaker. Sound is great. Voice command response is instant. Cortana integration is good. I used Windows10 computer for setup through Cortana on Windows. My Spotify premium works flawlessly. I actually use it more often now. I also have setup Insteon smart home devices on Cortana. So, now I can use Invoke to control these as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredible Love the speaker, great quality. Love Cortana, hope Microsoft continues to invest in it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cortana I've owned invoke since October. This is an excellent speaker. Very high quality and nice design. It is very durable. Cortana is the smartest and best AI out there. It's speech recognition is near perfect. Compared to Alexa, Siri and Google home Cortana is more capable and able to reach the desired information more appropriately. Music and podcasts are fun through Spotify and tune in. Disadvantages: they need to have more smart home companies on board.

The Cortana Invoke does not identify the caller I.E. “You have a call” is what Cortana says. I was wondering if there is a way for the Invoke to identify caller, like cortana does on a mobile phone? You have a call from [Name] or Incoming call from [Name]
