    Hey everyone! I use my Harman Kardon Invoke to play Spotify and KEXP and other music sources.

    Lately, Cortana doesn't understand the simple command to "stop" or "stop music." Anyone else experiencing this? Any ways to correct it? I've tried rebooting the Invoke.

    In response, she says "Sorry I can't process that right now, please try again later," then continues the music. "Pause" works, though, as does physically tapping the top of the speaker. But my wife is getting annoyed as am I, since we say "stop" all the time with Alexa and GA, and it's hard to adapt only for Cortana.

    when I used the command "Cortana Stop!" for both music over the internet on iHeart; and the timer last night for my pizza, I had no issue.

    The Microsoft engineers have a sense of humor. STFU (not the acronym) works on my Invoke.

    Thanks everyone for your help and feedback! As of yesterday, it seems Cortana on Invoke has resolved its problems with simple commands like Stop. Weird.
