Harmon Kardon Invoke Statement

Beginning January 2021, Microsoft will be ending the integrated Cortana service on the Harman Kardon Invoke speaker.

​Harman Kardon has been working closely with Microsoft to ensure a seamless device transition for all Harman Kardon Invoke speakers from a voice-activated device to a Bluetooth-only streaming device. We know that most of our customers primarily use the Invoke to play music because of its premium quality sound. To make sure you can keep listening to music or your favorite podcasts, we’ve created a Bluetooth-enabled device transition plan that we hope will help ease the impact of this change. At the beginning of 2021, Harman Kardon will issue a firmware update to all Invoke speakers that are connected to the Internet.

Once delivered, customers will still be able to enjoy the premium, high-fidelity audio from the Harman Kardon Invoke speaker to listen to their favorite music and podcasts – via Bluetooth connectivity only. The firmware update will be available for a limited time through the first half of 2021. Additionally, Microsoft is offering active Cortana users the opportunity to receive a $50.00 Microsoft Store online promotional gift card per eligible Invoke. Claims must be submitted to Microsoft before July 31, 2021 by the owner of the Microsoft account used to set up the Invoke. See the Microsoft Invoke support page for details https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/4575625
