JBL Link View Puts Google in Stereo Speakers and a Screen at CES

What a smart and innovative move from JBL this year. They come up with the one of the best speakers that can par up with some of the big and famous brand speakers. JBL Link View might be the one for you!

The JBL Link View focuses on sound quality with an 8-inch screen imbued with Google Assistant’s smarts.

With two 10-watt stereo speakers, the JBL Link View looks like it’ll have a smart display and actually sound good. With new competitive smart speakers from big brands such as Lenovo, Sony and LG all debuting at CES, JBL will rely on its background in affordable speakers to stand out in the blossoming smart display category.

Smart displays like the Amazon Echo Show ($229.99 at Amazon.com) combine the functionality of an always-listening smart speaker like the Amazon Echo with some of the touchscreen functionality of a tablet. The JBL Link View has an 8-inch touchscreen with Google Assistant built in, so it should have smarts similar to the Google Home ($129.00 at Dell Home).

As with a Google Home, you’ll be able to give voice commands to the Link to control your smart home, add an entry to your calendar, search the internet or access any of Google Assistant’s growing roster of abilities. Beyond what the Google Home can do, the screen on the Link View will allow you to make video calls, and you can watch videos or see info when you ask a question. For instance, it can show cooking videos as you cook, or a map when you ask for driving directions.
