Invoke connects to Cortana app for Windows, Android and iPhone
Harman Kardon has published on its website interesting details about Invoke – a Cortana-powered speaker. Although it will be available on the market after 4 to 6 months, we can learn how the device look and work.
Invoke is a premium-class speaker made of metal, with a dial at the top that includes the Cortana logo, probably to manually control the volume and for some other functions. At the heart of Invoke is Cortana, allowing you to stay on top of what’s important. Users will be able to control sound and smart home, make and receive calls with Skype, get answers to questions, and more by using voice commands.
According to the website, Invoke delivers full 360-degree sound with beautiful details. The product page reveals that Invoke will require a set up to the Cortana app for Windows 10 PCs and Phone, Android, or iPhone. There is no information on pricing, and the site mentions Fall 2017 when Invoke will be coming to the market.
Microsoft has a special BUILD session this week, dedicated to Cortana Skills, so we should learn more details about planned features for home automation and Internet of things.
