Rated 5 out of 5 by from Portable smarts and great sound! To start off, I'll just say the Link 20 is an excellent speaker in and off itself. The sound is excellent, theres no real distortion at higher volumes and those higher volumes are pretty satisfyingly high. So as someone who straight loves their (rock) music, its already brilliant. The addition of Google smarts to this speaker is the icing on the cake as far I'm concerned. Its great to have all those features and to be able to comfortably shift that functionality to whichever room I want, along with my music. So to cap it off, I'd definitely recommend this speaker to anyone looking to get a smart speaker but also better sound.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Crackling sound! First of all, the speaker if working properly id give it an average 4, not too much bass, on top of that, i hear a crackling sound no matter what the source is (bluetooth or spotify or google play music) and only when playing music, not sure whats wrong really, is it internal wiring? Is it defected? And very very poor documentation, how do we reset this thing?! I called jbl support and nothing! I tried the chat fearure, no available agents! I emailed them 2 times! Not a single response! Such a shame i thought come on its JBL!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Portable Home Powerhouse I picked up a link 20 as soon as i could find one. I already have 2 Google Home units in the house for music and home control uses. The wireless ( in all meanings) capability allows me to take the functionality anywhere. The patio for brunch or the garage when working on a project. Anywhere I have Wi-Fi. The sound is quite good and so far has functioned just like my Google Home units just more portable. Good Job JBL

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Product I used JBL for almost a year and wanted to buy a new set for my husband. The sound quality is amazing, soothing and the google integration is the best. On top of it, The best price for the best product. I bought as a christmas gift and the shipping was free. I love JBL.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Deep Bass and crisp sound overall We added this to our T-Mobile account to make up for the Tap we bought last year. This speaker exceeded all of our expectations in terms of how well it projected the sound and that we can link it to similar devices. Excellent buy!

How do you avoid the (any) speaker from being voice activated when you say "ok google" to your phone?

Asked by: ElliotS
There's a little microphone button on the speaker next to the power button. Just press it and i'll stop responding to "Hey / OK Google"

I had no trouble pairing the Link 20 with my phone, but it won't pair with my tablet. I downloaded the Google Home appl. When I try to pair it can't find the device. Can you only pair it with one device?

Asked by: buckyb21
Hi, Please try to put the link 20 in pairing mode by pressing the bluetooth button until it flashes, Once it's flashing please check on the bluetooth settings of your tablet and see if you can detect the link 20 and connect to it. If that doesn't help,Please submit a case request at https://www.jbl.com/support-contact.html and the Customer Service Team will be more than happy to assist you.

How is this integrated with smart hubs? Smartthings maybe?

Asked by: Fearz
Not sure what you mean by integration but I setup my SmartThings hub in the google home app. So now all of my devices connected to the hub can be controlled with google assistant.

I am considering purchasing this for a gift for my parents would the sound be good for a tv? 

Asked by: Pierce
This is the wrong thing to get if you want to add better audio to a TV. You're going to want either a sound bar, or sound base, or a powered pair of speakers to go on either side. The JBL Link series don't have any way to receive the TV's audio.
