    Have Invoke play music that is currently playing on my PC

    Hi JessebOne,

    Thank you for posting your concern on Microsoft Community Forums.

    Try to uninstalling and reinstalling the Cortana Device Setup app and check if you're able to complete the setup. Invoke Works with select music services, paid subscriptions may be required. I suggest you to try reset Invoke, follow
    the below steps, and check if that helps.

    1. Attach Power Cable
    2. Press and Hold the Mic Mute Button until Cortana Says, “Ready for setup.”
    Note: the Invoke will not function until properly set up and linked to a Microsoft account.

    I suggest you to follow this article on
    Set up my Harman Kardon Invoke with Cortana
    , and I also suggest you to refer this article on

    Fix problems with the Start menu or Cortana
    .

    I also suggest you to refer this article on
    Introducing Harman Kardon INVOKE
    with Cortana by Microsoft
    , where you can see the partners who support controlling invoke.

    We await your response.

    Regards,

    Music on Cortana/ Invoke

    I want to link my Spotify premium account to Cortana to play music on my invoke.

    It fails on the set up app and there is no music option in the notebook - any ideas on how to solve this?

    All help gratefully accepted.

    Thanks

    Playing Music using Cortana and Invoke Fails - Says Invoke is Offline

    When I use the Cortana App on my iPhone or Desktop, and select my Invoke device, and then select the music tab, the app says "Your Invoke is offline, To play music your device must be powered on and connected to Wi-Fi.

    Well, it is powered on and connected to Wi-Fi just fine. The Invoke works just fine for any verbal request, so clearly connected to Wi-Fi and the internet, and is most certainly powered on. The Cortana Apps recognize the invoke and know it is there. I
    have re-run the Invoke setup multiple times. I have verified my phone is connected to the same Wi-Fi access point. My desktop is hardwired, but into the same router.

    Can anyone advise on how to make this think work?
