”For a great, affordable, durable home smart speaker, you’ll be hard-pushed to find a product that can match the JBL’s Link Portable.”’What Hi-Fi?’ – 5 Star review.

Portable speaker that’s perfect for outdoors

Featuring a charging cradle and IPX7 waterproofing, the JBL Link Portable is the perfect speaker for BBQs, music in the garden, picnics and festivals. IPX7 waterproofing ensures the speaker easily handles a change in weather or a spillage.

Ideal for indoors, too
The tough and robust build doesn’t just suit outdoor use, but also harsher environments indoors, too. Designed to stand up to temperature extremes and moisture, this is the perfect portable speaker for use in the kitchen, bathroom or conservatory.

Long battery life and home charging cradle
With up to 8 hours of battery life, the JBL Link Portable has you covered for everything from a day in the office to an all-night party. Once the juice has run out, simply place on the supplied cradle and recharge. If you’re out-and-about, you can also charge with any compatible USB-C charger.

JBL 360-degree Pro Sound for room-filling audio
Thanks to its radiating speaker design, the Link Portable pulses sound through 360-degrees. This makes it ideal for room-filling sound inside and evenly-balanced sound outside – letting everyone in your group clearly hear the music.

Google Assistant built-in
With Google Assistant built-in, the JBL Link Portable is ready to take your voice commands. Just talk to the speaker to stream music, find answers on Google Search (the world’s most popular search engine), manage everyday tasks and control other smart devices. Just say ‘OK Google’ and let the fun begin.

Chromecast built-in
Chromecast lets you stream music, podcasts and audio apps, including Google Play. Having it built-in saves the battery life on your phone as the phone's Bluetooth transmission system isn't used for this purpose. Being able to stream straight from the cloud also gives the best audio quality.

One app controls it all
Download the Google Home app and you’ve got effortless control of your home entertainment. Integrate all your favourite streaming music services for voice activation. You can also cast audio from supported mobile devices, laptops and PCs.

Link ‘em up
Using the Google app and Chromecast system, it’s easy to create a wireless, multi-room home audio system. Choose between compatible Chromecast speakers or simply stick to the JBL Link family and enjoy the sound of music all around your home. Listen to the same music everywhere or different music, at different volumes in each room.

Apple AirPlay 2
If you prefer Apple to Android, the Link Portable is also compatible with AirPlay 2. Simply pair your Apple device and wirelessly stream music, podcasts and any other audio you wish.

Bluetooth connectivity
As well as connecting to your home wi-fi network, the Link Portable also makes local links with Bluetooth devices. Perfect for when you’re out of wi-fi range, simply connect your smartphone or tablet by Bluetooth and keep the music streaming.

Indoors or outdoors, come rain or shine, the JBL Link Portable is your constant, music companion.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great little speaker for my kitchen I purchased the JBL speaker with Google assistant and it is great. The long guarantee provided by Richer Sounds is a real bonus.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound, great price, and a pair do stereo! We bought two of these speakers, due to a phenomenal deal that richer sounds were offering. Sound is stunningly good, the bonus was discovering that these can be set up as a stereo pair in the Google home app - which we hadn't expected. Build quality and design first rate, we love the dock and it's all USB 3 too.. Recommended!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Balanced sound and broad connectivity The JBL Link Portable is one of the very few small speakers to support Airplay 2. Once it’s setup it can be kept on cradle to keep the charge up. If not on cradle you’ll need to turn it off when not in use or the battery will drain within the day. Sound is impressive for size with good bass and minor distortion at high volume. Thanks JBL!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Features, Superb Sound Needed a waterprrof radio or speaker for the shower room. This looked like the best value and I am delighted with it. At full volume there is no distortion, bass is clear and deep but doesn't seem adjustable through google assistant/google home. Biggest issue is there there doesn't seem to be an auto-off if on battery power. So if the last person having a shower forgets to turn it off, it might be out of battery by the next morning. Other than that it is perfect for what I bought it for. Delighted with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Favourite Smart Speaker I've had this speaker for around a year. Works very well, love the re-charge dock. I keep it near my back door to the garden, so easy just to pick up and take out to the garden. It's been accidentally dropped it, or knocked off a table so many times but works 100%. Sound output is good and clear. The Google Home Smart control works well and wifi reception seems fine. I wish JBL made a Alexa version, I'd buy another one.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great little speaker, perfect for my needs Bought a few weeks back but wanted to wait to review till I'd tested it properly. Bought this to fit into my existing chromecast home and it does the job perfectly. Solid sound for the size, gets plenty loud enough and good sound quality. Dropped one star because when on 5ghz it failed to roam to another access point for my WiFi but since switching to 2.4ghz it's perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Smart looking speaker I have owned JBL speakers for several years. All Bluetooth etc… but the small link black speaker is extremely versatile with many music apps . So easy to use with voice control. A joy to use and a punchy sound for a small speaker . Sounds 360 wherever positioned. Neat job JBL.10,/10.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from It's ok, just ok. Having owned a Bose portable smart speaker, which sounded amazing, but returned due to it being agoraphobic, which defeated the object, the JBL is certainly a step down. Sound quality is ok, there's no dedicated app, Google is a bit laggy, streaming Spotify is hit and mis. The speaker just does the job. Unfortunately, the choice for portable smart speakes is very small and so I settled for this.
