JBL introduce LINK speakers with Google Assistant built-in


At IFA overnight, JBL parent Harman International has announced a new range of LINK speakers with Google Assistant built-in.

The speaker range covers the LINK 10, LINK 20 and LINK 300 voice activated speakers which feature both Chromecast and Bluetooth streaming support across the range. The speakers include JBL’s signature best-in class sound quality to give you great sound wherever you are.

The Link 10 and 20 are designed as portable speakers with 5 and 10 hours of battery life respectively. Both carry IPX7 waterproof rating, so you can use them outside where they can take a splash and keep playing. The Link 300 speaker on the other hand is a much more powerful device designed for inside use which JBL says can ‘can be easily linked together for a big, bold multi-room listening experience—within reach of any home Wi-Fi network’.

Dan is a die-hard Android fan. Some might even call him a lunatic. He’s been an Android user since Android was a thing, and if there’s a phone that’s run Android, chances are he owns it (his Nexus collection is second-to-none) or has used it.

Dan’s dedication to Ausdroid is without question, and he has represented us at some of the biggest international events in our industry including Google I/O, Mobile World Congress, CES and IFA.
