Questions & Answers


Can it perform basic voice functions, such as raise/lower volume or change track, without interne...

Asked by Ed April 28, 2020

Without internet access, this speaker can only be used as a bluetooth speaker. It cannot perform basic voice functions or Apple's Airplay audio over WiFi function without internet.

Is Airplay 2 laggy for other users? I can't get the speaker to sync within a second of other speakers. This causes a terrible echo/mime effect. I can't use this speaker with my others in the house. Is there a way to update the firmware and resolve this?

Asked by Hatch December 16, 2019

Yes it is laggy. It is out of sync with all other Airplay2 devices in my home. So it is quite annoying in multiroom use in that respect.

What about the equalizer, I bought 2 JBL LP´s yesterday and after a day the eq disappeared?? I need to set the treble/bass to be able to try to get these speakers to produce a sound they should be capable of. If not I must return them.

Asked by Joppe4 December 1, 2020

Eq settings are not available in the google home app for this speaker

how do i reset it 

Asked by hssndn February 8, 2020

Press and hold mute button > 10 seconds.

JBL Link Portable Question: My bluetooth doesn't seem to be working. So far I've tried the following: Pushed once, held it in, pushed twice, tried multiple iPhones, reset the speaker, turned it on and off, still unable to connect on iPhones.

Asked by MattS28 January 13, 2020

When I set up Google Home first with the unit, then like a charm. Directions do not say that. Sad. I won't make inference as to why, here...

When connected to a phone via Bluetooth, can this be used as a speakerphone on calls?

Asked by Cam123 August 11, 2020

I was able to make phone calls using Google Assistant ( say "Hey Google? Call ###-###-####), but not directly from my cellular device.

Can the JBL Link Portable connect to Google Home Minis to create a speaker group?

Asked by cs81 May 24, 2020

You can create a "speaker group" with a Google Home Mini in the Google Home app, like other Chromecast capable speakers, and you should also be able to connect it to a Home Mini using Bluetooth where all sound from the Home Mini will be played through the Link Portable, but you can't create a "speaker pair" with a Home Mini for a wider stereo soundstage.

Important question before buying: The controversial AirPlay 2 lag/delay got solved with a firmware update?

Asked by Misi April 27, 2020

JBL Link Portable supports AirPlay 2 and Chromecast. Update for the software is being done from time to time over-the-air.

When will be the update to the Polish language to use with Google Home on this device?

Asked by Mikku October 8, 2020

We don't have news to share when Polish will be available as a supported language for the Google Assistant services for our JBL Link Portable. This is a feature/ update that Google is working on. You can reach out to them for further information. If you need assistance with your speakers set up and troubleshooting, please reach out to us. We're here to help.

I watched a review video where the reviewer mentioned the JBL Link Portable is compatible to TWS (True Wireless Stereo), so it would be possible to connect another Link Portable and play in Stereo. Is this possible? Where to find a tutorial explaining?

Asked by Alexandretf November 9, 2020

Our JBL Link Portable has to be set up through the Google Home App so you can group it with other Chromecast enabled speakers. The sound output will be in mono. Set up instructions about speaker groups are here:

The JBL Link Portable smart speaker works and sounds great. I was able to use my android Google home app to link via WiFi which has the controls and song information on it. The Google Assistant on the speaker learned my voice commands and works good. I have not tried the Apple Airplay2 feature yet or the Bluetooth. The range outside our house worked even into my neighbors yard about 60 feet away from the router. Wish it had Alexa, but for the sale price being fifty dollars less, it has been worth it. The sound fills our rooms 10x14 but will not give you the booming bass some may crave. Happy purchase that we can take on the road to. The charging cradle makes it even easier with the mico usb c.

Solid quality, inside and out
Customer review from logo
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I love a good quality speaker, and the JBL Link Portable is not only durable, but sounds nice and crisp as well! Huge plus for me. I own a couple of speakers already, but this is my first one that's compatible through Apple's AirPlay2, and Google Assistant. At first I had trouble playing music from Spotify for some reason, but after using it for a few days, the connection was linking up properly. Apple Music, and locally saved music play just fine. If you manage play controls from your device, there's a couple seconds of communication lag, probably because of the way AirPlay works. Did I mention the docking set-up? You can either plug the cable into the dock and charge it up that way, or directly into the speaker itself. It's the small details that I like!

Excellent addition to link system and google home.
Customer review from logo
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This speaker is a really nice addition to my google home. I now have 3 jbl link speakers and the system works very well. I can play music on all speakers throughout my home, or play different music in each room. Hooks up to WiFi easily. Added to google home to control lights, thermostat, and music. The sound on the speaker is excellent for its size. Even at max volume is is very clear, even outside. The charging pad makes it super easy to grab a speaker and bring it anywhere. Really cool speaker.

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Like so many other jbl speakers this one is small and packs a punch. It looks amazing! Out of the box you can already tell this speaker is high quality. One of the best things I like is that it has Google voice assistant, so you can leave it anywhere at home. Another thing that makes this even easier to move around is it's charging stand can be hooked up to the outlet charging your speaker and when you want yo over it somewhere else it's as easy as just grabbing it and taking with you, no need to unplug cables. And when you need to charge it, just place it over the charging stand and it automatically starts charging without having to plug anything like other speakers. 10/10 I would definitely recommend if you're looking for a speaker that will fit nicely at home or office. Sounds great and looks great!

Fantastic Flexibility with Portable Google Home
Customer review from logo
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Overall, I'm pretty pleased with this speaker as it packs tremendous volume and functionality with the Google Home integration. From a sound perspective, its not as powerful as the JBL Link 300, but at higher volumes, the speaker performs as well. Really love that the speaker can easily integrate with the rest of my smart home speaker system. Great for outdoors, sporting events, or just moving around the house.

Amazing quality, design and portability.
Customer review from logo
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] The best part of this speaker is the built quality and portability. I love the charging dock, it makes charging and taking the speaker on the go so much easier! I also love that JBL has started incorporating USB C to their new products. I was not impressed with the sound, for the size of the speaker I was expecting a little more power and clarity. It sounds just a little better than my JBL Clip 3. PROS - Portability - Charging Dock - USB C - Battery Life - IPX7 Certified - Built Quality - Google assistant CONS - Not even a con but sound quality could be better
