JBL Link Portable Wi-Fi Speaker with Google Assistant - Grey is rated 3.6 out of 5 by 160.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Amazing quality, design and portability. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] The best part of this speaker is the built quality and portability. I love the charging dock, it makes charging and taking the speaker on the go so much easier! I also love that JBL has started incorporating USB C to their new products. I was not impressed with the sound, for the size of the speaker I was expecting a little more power and clarity. It sounds just a little better than my JBL Clip 3. PROS - Portability - Charging Dock - USB C - Battery Life - IPX7 Certified - Built Quality - Google assistant CONS - Not even a con but sound quality could be better

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Great idea, poor execution I’m not sure what JBL was thinking when they decided to make this device require set up via googlehome to even use bluetooth. It is advertised as being able to set up via apple airplay2. What a nightmare that was and even after you couldn’t use bluetooth unless you set it up through google home which I do not want to use in any capactity. The speaker is very difficult to set up and use, the “easy start” guide is next to useless with no online resources to help. JBL needs to recall all of these speakers and replace the software with something that is a lot more user friendly and intuitive. Get rid of the google cr*p and allow me to connect to bluetooth without any extra hoops to jump through.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Stops Taking Charge I have another JBL speaker that I love and I wanted a new one to go with my Google Home Speaker. I bought this and within 3 months the device stopped charging on the cradle it sits on. I contacted JBL customer care who was great and sent me another JBL Link and within 3 months the device stopped taking charge just like the last one. I am now skeptical of JBLs products that they are manufacturing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I had some trouble figuring out how to work this speaker but once I downloaded the Google Play app, everything was resolved. I was surprised that this was not able to just connect to Bluetooth and play right away (maybe it can but I couldn't figure that out) so it seems you have to have the app to get it to work, which I don't see being a problem. The sound is amazing! It's clear, crisp and loud! I like to 'Hey Google' feature and find it to be very helpful and convenient. It has so many features that I am excited to try out and I've only scratched the surface. I think what makes this better than the competition is that it's portable and waterproof! Great product, highly recommend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is the portable you need! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I've used a lot of small portable Bluetooth speakers in my day, but this is by far my favorite. Besides the fact it has the fantastic audio quality you would expect from a JBL product, its packed with useful features. Having google assistant built right in makes this worth every cent. Its like having a virtual assistant anywhere you take this speaker. Also, not having to use a cord every time you want to charge is awesome. The charging base makes it so easy, and a low chance of wearing out the port. The only negative is that is does not come with a USB outlet, although you probably have a drawr full of them, its something to keep in mind.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT SPEAKER!! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Like so many other jbl speakers this one is small and packs a punch. It looks amazing! Out of the box you can already tell this speaker is high quality. One of the best things I like is that it has Google voice assistant, so you can leave it anywhere at home. Another thing that makes this even easier to move around is it's charging stand can be hooked up to the outlet charging your speaker and when you want yo over it somewhere else it's as easy as just grabbing it and taking with you, no need to unplug cables. And when you need to charge it, just place it over the charging stand and it automatically starts charging without having to plug anything like other speakers. 10/10 I would definitely recommend if you're looking for a speaker that will fit nicely at home or office. Sounds great and looks great!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Speaker for Apple Lovers I like the functionality of this speaker because it connects to Apple’s HomeKit. With AirPlay 2 I can play music seamlessly to this speaker. The design is good and basic. Battery life has not been an issue. I haven’t submerged in water but I’m glad it has some water proofing. This is a great and handy speaker. There are some quirks that though. The loudness can use some help, I’ve heard louder speaker coming in at the same size. But it gets plenty loud. The setup was a bit buggy, I had to reset it a couple to connect it to HomeKit and google. But once it connected it worked great. So far this is a great HomeKit Airplay 2 speaker!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not quite there. I purchase the speaker to mesh with my existing nest products. A little wireless speaker with some protection from the elements to use on my outside patio. I can not complain about the sound quality or portability. The Google assistant is not quit up to part. Responses are slow. Certain functions are a flip of a coin, do not disturb function for example. Reducing volume at night, dimming its lights etc. I had hoped it would integrate fully with my Google speakers. It hasn't. It occasionally drops the cast, requiring a repeat command. I am pleased with the overall performance and it meets my needs. I may have expected too much.

Questions & Answers

Can I use 2 JBL speakers together to create stereo sound 

Asked by: Judey Jude
Thank you for your question. Two JBL Link Portable speakers can be used to create a speaker group in the Google Home Application which would allow streaming the audio content to both units simultaneously. Directly pairing the speakers to one another is not feasible. If you would like personalized assistance, we invite you to contact Harman Customer Service by phone, email or chat. You can find all contact information at https://support.harmanaudio.com/fr/fr/customer-service/contact.html Thank you.

AirPlay 2 still laggy. I can see other users have raised this. Is there a way to update the device? It is such a powerful speaker other than this

Asked by: starbuck86
Thank you for your question. I can confirm this is not a known issue with the product. Please perform a factory reset of the speaker by turning it on, holding down the mute button for at least 10 seconds, then re-pairing as this may resolve the issue. If it does not resolve the problem, we welcome you to contact our JBL Customer Support team: https://support.jbl.com/gb/en/ Thank you.

2 questions: 1. can i link 2 or more speakers using apple Airplay 2 with Apple TV 4K.  2. is this a new product or is it being discontinued.  I need a portable apple airplay2 speakers that can link 2 or more speakers 

Asked by: dinna
You could stream audio from your Apple TV though Airplay 2. You have to add the speakers in one room in the Apple Home app so they could play the same content at the same time. Our JBL Link Portable is a current model and stocks will arrive soon.

Can you leave the JBL link portable on its charging cradle most of the time without damaging the battery? It will be left on its charging cradle 95% of the time and I want to make sure this won't harm the battery.

Asked by: Jam22
Thank you for your question. The Link portable is designed to be on the charging cradle most of the time, so the battery management system will not allow the battery to overcharge and will keep the state of charge at a safe level. Should you wish to receive further support, you may contact the Harman Customer Support team by telephone, email or chat in order to receive direct assistance. Please see https://uk.harmanaudio.com/support-contact.html#ns for further details. Thank you.
