The JBL Link Bar is an affordable soundbar that comes with Google Assistant and Android TV built-in

One of the new products is the JBL ‘LINK BAR’ – a soundbar that also comes with Android TV and Chromecast built-in, which means it’s a soundbar that can also transform your TV into a smart TV. You can use “Hey Google” voice commands to effortlessly guide through a sea of content so that you find your movie or video every time, touts JBL. JBL will likely launch the LINK BAR in North America sometime in fall 2018, followed by Europe in spring 2019.

Much like the Lenovo Smart Display, JBL’s other product – dubbed ‘LINK VIEW’ – is another product meant to compete with the Amazon Echo Show. Essentially, with JBL’s LINK VIEW, owners can use it to view pictures, stream music and movies, control their smart home, and much more. Just like JBL’s LINK BAR, the unique selling point of LINK VIEW is Google’s built-in suite of tools including Google Assistant and Chromecast.

Lastly, JBL plans to launch the Everest 710GA and 110GA – a line of wireless headphones featuring Google Assistant. These headphones are designed to send texts, make calls, and most importantly, play your music. JBL boasts that the company packed 70-years’ worth of sound system design expertise into the 710 and 110. JBL plans to sell the 710GAs and 110GAs for $300 and $120, respectively.
