Groove Music, Cortana speaker and more on #AskDanWindows Episode 26

This week I answer questions about the Harmon Kardon Invoke Cortana speaker, Windows Mixed Reality on ARM, Groove music and more!

Let's get to this week's big questions!

  • How similar/different is the Cortana experience on Android compared to Win10M? Can I still "call" Cortana and initiate a text or reminder? - Christopher
  • What are your thoughts regarding the latest move by MS in choosing Spotify over their own service Groove Music? Is there a beneficial move on the long run, or is MS just not that interested in their own products and services anymore? - Prometheus2021
  • Can devices running Windows 10 on ARM using Qualcomm mobile processors in the future would also have enough mojo to run WMR? - Player Piano
  • Will the Cortana speaker be canceled after ditching Groove? - Jan Janssen
