JBL Link Bar: soundbar from Google and JBL
Google and JBL have presented a hybrid device that combines a set-top box with a soundbar: the JBL Link Bar. In addition, this new product also works as an audio hub for your living room. The wide speaker runs on Android TV and is equipped with the Google Assistant so you can operate and search with your voice. Google puts this speaker down as the first of its kind, with the Assistant and Android TV. This suggests that we will see more of this kind of hybrid soundbars in the future.
Besides the fact that you can use the ‘Hey Google’ command for all sorts of things, you can also use the soundbar to listen to music, without the TV having to be on it.
