Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is the portable you need! 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 One of the best speakers ever. Fantastic sound. I've gotten this speaker a few weeks ago. I'm so thrilled. It has really good sound, the basses are solid and that provides you with a good general sound. What's so good with this speaker is that it also has Google assistant build inside and that makes everything easier for you to put on music, skip song, and ask for favors. Also, it's water resistant so you don't have to be careful if it touches water at all. It has a gorgeous design and the materials are really good quality, so on this side I think you're getting a good quality equip for the money. I totally recommend you to buy this amazing speaker, you'll not regret.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound 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 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 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.

Product Q&A

Does anyone else find the wireless charger does not seem to connect to the speaker properly and so doesn't charge properly? I can leave the speaker on the stand, and it'll start charging but I'll come back at the end of the day and it's flat

Asked by: LiamH86
i am having the same thing since i bought it a few days ago brand new. if i plug directly into the speaker it charges, but the cradle doesn&rsquo;t work for it. defeats the whole purpose of the charging cradle? which was one of the reasons i chose this speaker. otherwise I am very happy with it, but this is a big issue. I am using the charging cradle and usb cable that came with it and cradle is plugged into wall socket.

Is Airplay 2 laggy for other users? I can't get the speaker to sync within a second of other speakers. This causes a terrible echo/mime effect. I can't use this speaker with my others in the house. Is there a way to update the firmware and resolve this?

Asked by: Hatch
Yes, it is laggy. I have the Link Music and it is not. It works perfectly in Airplay mode. BTW, both speakers work great in Chromecast/ Google home group for playing music in sync. So I'm guessing there is something different in the WiFI hw or sw portion of the Link Portable. I love it, but it would be better if it didn't lag. I wonder if two of them would be in sync using Airplay?

I managed, on third phone, to do initial set up of wifi so now I can use it as a bluetooth speaker but Google Home doesn't &quot;see&quot; the JBL and this I can't complete or return to the set up. Is there a router setting that is causing the problem?

Asked by: JoeCav
Well I think I sorted it out myself eventually. My home wifi set-up has a primary router and two subsidiary routers set up as access point (&quot;AP mode&quot;). Routers operating in AP mode do not have UPnP (universal Plug and Play, for recognizing new devices) and normally this feature cannot be turned on. So I went to the room with the primary router, which is in normal router mode and does have UPnP enabled, and reset the speaker. I then used an android tablet (a fourth device!) to connect and setup the speaker, enabling wifi and google assistant along the way, and it now seems to be working as it should. Fingers crossed this is a permanent solution.

What about the equalizer, I bought 2 JBL LP&acute;s yesterday and after a day the eq disappeared?? I need to set the treble/bass to be able to try to get these speakers to produce a sound they should be capable of. If not I must return them.

Asked by: Joppe4
Eq settings are not available in the google home app for this speaker

Can the JBL Link Portable connect to Google Home Minis to create a speaker group?

Asked by: cs81
You can create a &quot;speaker group&quot; with a Google Home Mini in the Google Home app, like other Chromecast capable speakers, and you should also be able to connect it to a Home Mini using Bluetooth where all sound from the Home Mini will be played through the Link Portable, but you can't create a &quot;speaker pair&quot; with a Home Mini for a wider stereo soundstage.

Can you permanently disable Google Assistant on this? Have privacy concerns but needing an Airplay waterproof speaker

Asked by: crimsondeal
Our JBL Link Portable is designed as a voice-activated speaker, and it's not possible to disable the Google Assistant feature. The speaker needs to be connected to a WiFi network before the Bluetooth starts working. We're always looking for ways to improve our current products and future product line. Your feedback is much appreciate. If you need more help, please reach out to our JBL Customer Support team.
