The different restrictions on which accounts you can use on different devices is confusing … use a work account on your computer, but not on a phone or speaker? The only place where Cortana can still lead the pack is at work. Why is MS not capitalizing on this? Make Cortana king of the conference room. I shouldn't have to spend $2000 on a "Teams" device that makes phone calls, reviews appointments & schedules meetings, when a $50 Invoke speaker can do the same thing (just not with a 365 business account).

Allow 365 accounts on Invoke, including rooms, and port Teams communication over for joining meetings & calling work contacts by voice. Add in a prompt for audio recording & transcription from the Teams app at the start of meetings. You now have a killer business device - which even at $200 would be a deal - that any office should want for their conference rooms. Rebrand as business version, do a little marketing, ship it with a how-to manual and a "for devs" Cortana for Business brochure. Bam. No other assistant can do this!

This needs to be fanned out. Additionally, Family settings is available but, dosent do anything with multi voice accounts.
I agree, although I have a Live account, all my stuff is on O365 work, including Microsoft Today, which is now integrated with Outlook flagged emails and Planner Tasks. Not being able to get Cortana to be my digital assistant on my phone for work....misses the point of having a digital assistant!!
