    I've tried a dozen commands to get my Invoke to do anything on my Nest. "can't find the device named thermostat, or temperature." the name is Kitchen. When I asked to set kitchen to 76. Cortana says sorry try to set a scene like aurura.

    I went to the Nest site and searched for Cortana and for invoke. Pretty much 0 results. I searched through all the devices and apps that" works with Nest". No Cortana and no Invoke. The most obscure and limited sounding devices work with Nest, but Cortana on every Windows 10 device goes un-noticed.

    Am I missing something? I'm connected through my Nest account to work with Cortana and my cortana Home skill is connected to Nest.

    Commands I tried:
    Set temperature to
    Set kitchen to
    Change temperature to
    Make kitchen warmer
    Make it warmer
    Set thermostat to
    Change thermostat to
    Change kitchen to
    Set and change Nest to

    That's weird. Cortana does support Nest. How about using your laptop to check if Nest is enabled under the 'connected home' option (skills/notebook).

    Thank you, Ven. I am member of Windows Central. I've tried to connect my Nest to my Cortana on PC, Invoke, and mobile device. I've also used multiple users on Nest, but no success.

    I figured out what happened. My Nest account is not the "Owner" account. I tried using the owner on my account to link to Cortana on my phone. It did not work. I linked the owner Nest account on my PC, while I did receive the "Something went wrong" notification, it still worked.
