”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 Small footprint. Excellent sound Plays 24Bit/96Khz flac files over WIFI faultlessly. Chromecast BBC sounds, HIFI cast ap work flawlessly. Live in a very quiet WIFI environment so cant comment how it copes in blocks of flats or busy urban areas with multiple WIFI carriers around. Battery life not tested accurately. Seems to do the 'ok google' thing even with high levels of background noise. Bass is excellent not just for its size but good in its own right.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from works well, but short battery on standby very goopd for the money, but I wanted to leave it in between charges on standby and the battery only lasts a day like this before becoming exhausted. JBL say this isn ormal. The Sonos Roam lasts 10 days thay say.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Good speaker, poor as a Google Home device This is my second JBL "smart speaker". The first, a Flip 4, was useless as a Google device and I returned it. This one is fine as a speaker but disappointing to say the least as a Google Home device, because it keeps disconnecting. The problem happens in an area of my house where, according to wi-fi monitor software, the signal varies between "fine" and "good". My main use of the speaker is as a portable Internet radio. I can say to the JBL "Play Radio 4" and it does that but, in this area, invariably stops within a minute or two. Usually there's no vocal alert, just silence. Occasionally the speaker will say "Hang on while I get connected to wi-fi" or tell me to open the Google Home app to reconnect, but even then, after reconnecting, it doesn't continue playing the radio station. None of my other 5 Google Home devices do this, even the one a few feet away in the same room. I gather the problem might be fixed by a firmware update: mine is on version 1.44.219548 and I hear it hasn't been updated for over a year. Does JBL care about its users?
