If you're wondering what the Cortana part of the Harman Kardon Invoke speaker can do, here's a short rundown:

  • Report on the weather (today and tomorrow).
  • Play music.
  • Identify currently playing music or the album.
  • Ask about mapping information, such as "Hey Cortana, how long will it take to drive to Boston?"
  • Get the latest news headlines (plays NPR hourly update from TuneIn Radio).
  • Answer questions, such as "What time is Home Depot open until?"
  • Set reminders, location-based reminders, alarms, and countdowns, which can then be transferred to Cortana on your phone.
  • Create a calendar appointment, or ask about your next appointment.
  • Make Skype calls.
  • Add items to a list or have Cortana read back what is on that list.
