After leaking over the last couple of weeks, the JBL Link View Smart Display powered by Google Assistant has now officially gone on-sale in Australia for RRP of $349.95.

The JBL Link View Smart Display includes an 8″ HD resolution touch screen, with twin front-facing speakers and a rear-facing passive radiator offering that excellent sound quality we’ve come to expect from JBL.

The JBL Smart Display includes an IPX4 rating making it splash proof, which sets it ahead of other Smart Displays on the market which carry no such rating. The Smart Display additionally includes a 5MP camera for Duo Video calling.

Marcus Fry, Brand Activation Director of JBL AUNZ at HARMAN said of the Smart Display

When we launched the LINK series last year it represented a major milestone for us, as the first voice-activated, multi-room speakers to use the Google Assistant and deliver Grammy award-winning JBL sound. Research shows voice activated speakers are no mere novelty. Sixty percent of owners now consider them a necessity. By continuing to enhance their experience by adding HD display with a touch screen and a front-facing camera, people will find even more ways to make these speakers an important part of their lives, routines and enjoyment.

The addition of a display to a Google Assistant brings many benefits including the ability to follow along with a recipe in the kitchen, or watch YouTube videos as well as listen to music. Other functions such as controlling your smart home are also available with the JBL Link View offering users access to control their smart lights, switches and more with their voice, or from the new Home Hub control in the Smart Display.

JBL is now selling the Link View on www.jbl.com.au and at select retailers, at the RRP of $349.95 – though it’s currently on-sale for $269 on their website or you can find it at Harvey Norman for $265 or The Good Guys for $269.

The JBL smart speaker ticks a lot of boxes that the other ones don’t.
