Cortana Home Assistant Review

Extensive look at the just released Invoke Cortana home system to compete with the Alexa and Google Home examples,  I have tested Cortana in a business environment since its release.  Still waiting for some useful examples., even obvious examples for Windows help seem weak.  I would have expected some attentive assistance as well, are they still running shy of the paperclip failure?

Also interesting there is no indication of its reported alliance with Alexa.  Following.  Some have suggested that Alexa could deal with the home side, and Invoke the business.  But it looks here that Invoke is taking the existing successful assistant approach, emphasizing music delivery.  The Invoke system can make calls, and is connected to Microsoft's Skype.

Harman Kardon Invoke review: Cortana isn’t too comfortable in the home yet    Microsoft needs to do some tweaking to make Cortana a better at-home assistant.
