JBL Launches Google Assistant-powered speakers, JBL Link and Everest GA Series

Okay, Google! Get me a JBL Link 20. 😂

Command it what you will. Play your favorite music, dim the lights, check traffic, set alarm, send text messages, make calls and even turn on a blender. Super high tech, besh! 😊 I'm super amazed with these new unveiled series, the JBL Link and Everest GA Series. Trust me, it will make your life super easy with the help of the Google Assistant. 🤗


For the record, JBL is the first brand to officially launch Google Assistant-powered speakers in the Philippines.



HARMAN International, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. focused on connected technologies for automotive, consumer and enterprise markets has unveiled the JBL LINK series, the first voice-activated speakers to bring together JBL’s Signature Sound with the Google Assistant.

Available in four models, the LINK 10, LINK 20, LINK 300 and LINK 500, give consumers rich, full-range sound and instant access to their favorite music through voice control.

The JBL LINK is a hands-free voice-activated speaker series with built-in Google Assistant. Users can stream music, ask questions, manage everyday tasks, and easily control connected smart devices around the home – simply by using voice commands. By saying “Ok, Google” or “Hey, Google,” the device can help perform tasks like playing a favorite song, finding delicious recipes for dinner parties, or even checking traffic before leaving the house.

“The JBL LINK is an outstanding wireless smart speaker that truly brings world-class innovation right into the home of our consumers.”

Merging JBL’s signature sound and Google’s voice assistant technology, JBL LINK speakers bring together a powerful listening experience and a conversational voice assistant. The LINK speakers feature high-definition music streaming with Chromecast built-in, providing an elevated music experience, best-in class sound quality and endless entertainment from the most popular music and entertainment apps, all through a simple voice command.


Designed for you to enjoy uninterrupted music anywhere you go, the LINK 10 and LINK 20 speakers are made highly portable with IPX7 waterproof rating and comes with 5 and 10 hours of playing time respectively. The LINK series’ larger members, the LINK 300 and LINK 500, meanwhile, are both made to be a reliable music source at home.

Also powered by Google assistant, these speakers can be connected to your smart appliances through the Google Home app. The LINK 300 and LINK 500, along with other JBL speakers can all be connected through any home Wi-Fi network for a multiple speakers setup for a powerful, louder multi-room listening experience.

Amplifying further its product lineup, Harman International also brings in the local shores the all-new JBL Everest lineup comprised of the Everest Elite 110 GA, Everest 310 GA, and Everest 710 GA.
Through Google Assistant, all three of the in-ear Everest Elite 110GA, on-ear Everest 310GA, and over-ear 710GA allow users to have easy and convenient control over the connected device’s notifications, music, phone calls, SMS text messages and other smartphone functions.
