JBL Link 10 review

Combines of the power of Google Assistant with portabilit and water resistance.

What is the JBL Link 10?

A battery-powered, Google-Assistant-compatible speaker you can use anywhere there’s a Wi-Fi connection.

The Link 10 is the smallest model in the JBL smart speaker family, which also includes the Link 20 and Link 300 models. Link 10 promises five hours of battery life, high-quality audio playback and an IPX7 waterproof rating so you can use it everywhere, from the kitchen to the swimming pool.

With Google Assistant, users get real-time information from the Internet with a simple voice command. Hear the latest sports results, weather forecasts, news headlines, answers to math problems and more.

If you have other smart home accessories compatible with Google Home, like Philips Hue light globes or Nest Protect smoke alarms, interact with them through Link 10 as well.

Unlike Google speakers, Link 10 doesn’t require a hardwired power connection.

If you take the Link 10 out of range of a Wi-Fi connection, the integrated Bluetooth functionality will let you stream from a mobile device over a traditional Bluetooth connection. This makes the Link 10 extremely versatile and portable, especially when you factor in its water resistance rating.

What other devices is the JBL Link 10 compatible with?

On the smart home front, the Link 10 works with Philips, LIFX, Ring, Nest, WeMo and many more. The device also pairs with a number of entertainment apps like Spotify, YouTube Music, Google Play Music, Netflix and YouTube.

Because Google Assistant works with IFTTT, you can also program automation tasks with specific commands — from syncing your task lists across different apps to sending tweets with your voice.

Plus, the Link 10 is Chromecast enabled, so you can easily cast to the device itself or group it together with other speakers for multi-room audio.
