One of the big reasons our readers are interested in the Harman Kardon Invoke is because, besides the usual Spotify, it will also support their Groove Music collection.
Now a developer has released an Amazon Echo skill which means you will not have to wait for the Invoke’s eventual release.
Starfish Groove by Starfishmint uses Groove’s public API and can play any of your music on OneDrive or in your Microsoft Groove account, using commands such as “Alexa ask Starfish Groove to play all songs” and “Alexa ask Starfish Groove to play love songs.”
Once playing it, however, supports simpler controls such as “Alexa, shuffle“, “Alexa, play next” etc.
To use the service you need to get a Starfishmint account, which costs $1.99 per month but also gives you access to some other skills, such as accessing your Microsoft Band or Google Fit stats on Alexa.
Starfishmint’s solution is not endorsed by Microsoft, so it is probably not a complete replacement for an HK Invoke. If you can not wait however you can grab the skill from Amazon here.
