While they’re easily the most popular choices when it comes to smart speakers, Amazon’s Alexa and Google’s Assistant aren’t your only two options. Microsoft’s Cortana virtual assistant is available for PCs and mobile devices, and now also in the form of a smart speaker courtesy of Harman Kardon’s Invoke. Considering the manufacturer, it’s no surprise that sound quality is one of the speaker’s key selling points, and CNET found that it doesn’t disappoint in that regard. As they note, however, Cortana does lag a bit behind other smart assistants, but integration with Alexa is promised by the end of 2017.
