Skype calling expands to the Harman Kardon Invoke

Skype is expanding to ambient devices—giving you a new, uniquely intelligent platform for Skype calling that extends beyond PC and mobile devices.

The Harman Kardon Invoke speaker, with Cortana by Microsoft, is the first of these devices embedded with easy, voice-activated Skype calling to your Skype contacts, phone contacts, and local businesses.

In addition to Skype-to-Skype calling, which is always free, Invoke also features unlimited free outbound calling from the U.S. to mobiles and landlines based in the U.S., Canada, Mexico, Puerto Rico, Guam, American Samoa, Northern Mariana Islands, and U.S. Virgin Islands. Restrictions apply—please read the Terms and Conditions of the full offer.

Invoke responds to your voice commands, such as “Hey Cortana, call mom” or “Hey Cortana, call the closest pharmacy.” You can also ask Cortana to call a specific phone number to reach a contact not yet assigned.

The Invoke combines premium audio quality with Cortana’s intelligence to help you make the most of the moments that matter, helping you to stay organized, present, and connected in the space that matters most—your home.

Additionally, with Cortana on Invoke, you can easily voice-command your music and smart home devices, create reminders and lists, manage schedules, get answers to questions, and much more. Invoke is a Skype certified device, meaning you can easily enjoy premium audio quality for both music and clear, reliable voice communication.
