Microsoft Cortana-enabled Harman Kardon Invoke Now Available For $200

For the longest time, Microsoft’s answer to Google Assistant, Apple Siri, Cortana has been largely relegated to the devices, such as laptops and more recently Skype on Xbox, that it was built into, but starting October 22, that changes when Cortana steps out of its familiar domains and into Harman Kardon Invoke.
