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
Hate using email for Twitter? Join me in our just-formed #AskDan Forums at Windows Central! I'll occasionally jump in here to try and answer questions or take ideas for new episodes of our web series (which should air twice a month going forward).
PS I have to get back into the forums this week as I've been super busy!
Don't use Twitter? Well after much feedback we are happy to announce you can forward your questions to AskDan@WindowsCentral.com to submit your requests!
You can also find previous episodes of #AskDanWindows here on the main landing page.
