JBL Unveils New Link Bar With Android TV Content and Google Assistant
LINK BAR brings voice-enabled smart TV content and quality sound in a one-piece soundbar for best-in-class viewing and interaction
JBL Australia/New Zealand introduces its brand new LINK BAR. A powerful soundbar that provides exceptional audio performance and delivers TV content in a smarter way with Android TV and voice-control with Google Assistant built-in, the LINK BAR is the most recent collaboration between JBL and Google, and expands the JBL LINK series.
The latest release in JBL’s link series, LINK BAR transforms any TV into a smarter TV with legendary sound performance. Equipped with Android TV, the innovative home product delivers a world of content, blockbuster movies, live sports, streaming apps and multiplayer games direct to your living room. Topped with the intelligence of the Google Assistant, this soundbar is anything but ordinary. Simply saying “Ok Google” grants instant access to streaming top Netflix flicks or YouTube videos, and content search becomes effortless through voice commands.
Built-in Chromecast capabilities only heighten the experience, supporting both high-definition video content and sound to provide entertainment unlike any other. Once connected on the same Wi-Fi network as the LINK BAR, a smartphone, tablet or laptop can ‘cast’ the latest chart-topping release or popular viral video from Chromecast-compatible apps.
The LINK BAR features multiple HDMI inputs and a one-cable connection to a TV. Switching between devices is made simple with voice commands. For example, saying “Ok Google, switch to Blu-ray player” makes the shift occur. Additionally, the LINK BAR offers an optional subwoofer, which provides an even bigger and more resounding bass.
“The JBL LINK BAR gives consumers an intuitive way to enjoy an amazing viewing experience, along with powerful, rich sound,” said Marcus Fry, Brand Activation Director of JBL AUNZ at HARMAN. “We believe in having technology seamlessly integrate with your life, and the LINK BAR is a natural progression of that philosophy.”
Created with the tech-savvy, forward-thinking consumer in mind, the LINK BAR is one that adapts to everyone’s lifestyle. Google’s intelligence learns from each person who accesses LINK BAR, familiarising itself with their voice and commands.
JBL’s LINK BAR is available now on www.jbl.com.au and at select electronics retailers, just in time for Father’s Day.
