”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 3 out of 5 by from Terrible UI Good sound for its size. But one of the most obscure ways of setting up a speaker that I have experienced (via Google Home). It is not, apparently, possible to set it up with Bluetooth connections out of the box. Weird. On that basis, I would not recommend this idiosyncratic speaker.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Do not recommend the JBL Link Portable If you have other airplay speakers in the house and are thinking of streaming simultaneously dont get this speaker. The audio is out of sync with other speakers

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Great product. Terrible design issues The charging Dock does not work at all. The USB c charge port is actually a micro USB 2amp limit so using any USB c charger bricks the device beyond repair. Their consumer support is non existent as I have never received even an email from them.

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 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.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from AirPlay 2 Doesn't Sync This is a great speaker other than it not working properly with AirPlay 2. Unfortunately that is the main reason I bought it. There also isn't a clear way to update the firmware. Perhaps this is happening in the background. I have tried sync audio in Google Home but it is impossible to find the right setting.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great device Love it, it's portable, nice design, good quality sound and build. Casting to this speaker works well. There is a slight delay when casting YouTube from Chrome browser and also when connected over Bluetooth, but I suspect no manufacturer has solved this issue.
