Looking for the Harman Kardon Invoke Cortana Speaker this Black Friday? Learn more here.
Cortana is Microsoft’s answer to the wildly popular voice assistant, Amazon Alexa. Microsoft has just released the Invoke speaker in partnership with German audio brand, Harman Kardon. Due to the strong competition, we are hoping to see a good discount on the Invoke Black Friday debut. Before we get to the Black Friday deals, let’s get down to the main features and look at how this compares to Amazon Alexa, Google Home, and Lenovo Smart Assistant.
Main Features and benefits of the Invoke Cortana Speaker
- Key functions – similar to the Amazon Echo or Google Home, the Invoke will be able to read messages, play music, schedule reminders as well as connect with the rest of your smart home devices.
- Skype – Microsoft plans to sync with Skype to allow phone calls.
- Already built into all Microsoft devices – Cortana is already built into Windows devices so you don’t need a special computer to start using it.
- Cortana is being built into many places – it’s not just speakers, BMW, Nissan and a range of other partners are building Cortana into their products, so there’s a better chance that more products will be using Cortana.
- Comes in Black and Silver.
Take a look at the video below to show how Cortana, combined with Invoke, syncs between all of your devices. It’s awesome!
