Audio and music have always been a big part of people’s everyday lives, but more so now in this digital age, where we are always consuming content. Because of that, sound quality has also become increasingly important.
For most of us, though, it is enough that the speakers we use for our entertainment needs—whether for listening to music or watching films or TV—are of great quality, but what if we told you that the audio experience can be further elevated to something even more functional?
JBL, a global brand known for their speakers, has released a line that not only packs audio quality the brand is known for, but also of many other functional qualities that make it so much more than just speakers. JBL’s LINK Series, specifically the LINK 10, LINK 20, LINK 300, and LINK 500, are all furnished with smart capabilities—they’re voice-activated and, the best part, equipped with the Google Assistant.

Here are six things we love about the JBL LINK Series.
6. They’re voice-activated.
Come on guys, it’s 2019. That means you don’t need to be physically holding your JBL LINK Series speakers to be controlling them. Just say the command and your LINK speaker will do the work. That’s hands-free convenience for you!
5. They’re portable, with long battery life.
The LINK 10 and LINK 20 are specifically designed for people with active lifestyles and like to bring the good vibes wherever they go. LINK 10 and LINK 20 are light and portable, and, most importantly, have long battery lives at 5 and 10 hours respectively so that you can play music anytime and anywhere.

4. They’re waterproof.
If you can bring them anywhere you go, they really should be sturdy. Luckily, they are. No rain nor spills can spoil the fun on the LINK 10 and LINK 20. No kidding, you can even submerge them in water, as they’re made from durable materials and housing. Did someone say pool party?
3. They can be connected for a multi-speaker set-up.
The JBL LINK Series speakers come with built-in Chromecast, which means that you can connect multiple speakers so that they’re all simultaneously playing the same song. You can place your LINK speakers in different rooms so the music is playing all around the house, or maybe just in all corners of one room for that surround-sound effect. Either way, these are all possible set-ups we love.

2. They’re smart.
All JBL LINK Series speakers, from the LINK 10, LINK 20, LINK 300, and LINK 500, are equipped with smart capabilities. The coolest thing is that because of this smart feature, you can also connect your LINK speaker to any other compatible smart device in your home and use its voice-command feature to control them. Need to turn down the lights but too lazy to get up? Just ask your LINK speaker to do it for you.
1. It’s the virtual assistant you never thought you’d need.
As the JBL LINK Series speakers are equipped with Google Assistant, this means that you have your own personal virtual assistant to make a ton of everyday tasks much easier for you. Need to look up dinner recipes? Text a friend? Check the weather or traffic? Look for important information? All you have to do is call out “Ok Google” to activate and command your Google Assistant, who is always ready to cater to what you need.
The JBL LINK Series speakers are all smart and voice-activated with built-in Google Assistant, but each device can serve a difference purpose depending on your lifestyle. The LINK 10 and LINK 20 are portable and waterproof for more outdoor use, while the LINK 300 and LINK 500 are more powerful with deep bass and sounds that really fill the room. But whatever the lifestyle, there’s surely one that will suit you well.
