Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use and looks great! I've been looking for an easy to use and aesthetically pleasing wireless speaker for some time now, and with the JBL Playlist I think I've found the one! I've had it just over a month th and never had any problems connecting, playing or linking any of my devices. The sound is great, inside or out and fills the entire space! The only thing that could improve this, would by to make this wireless and not have to be plugged into the mains power. If you're looking for a well priced, decent audio speaker which looks great, then look no further!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This may be what you want to hear! The sound is of a good quality. The Bass & Treble are fine. It works - both Bluetooth & Chromecast. I have it running from Google Play Music loaded in the Chrome browser on my laptop. Also from a Google Pixel mobile phone. Check out the best Music Player App on Android - Cloud-Player by DoubleTwist - it works well to play your music from google Drive or MS One Drive. JBL, please keep including Chromecast. If you buy a few of these you can build an all over the house music system sourced from your phone or laptop by using Chromecast Groups. If there is a negative it's that the lead is too short (but easy to replace with a longer one for a fiver). And now, the answer to the Acid Test question: Yes, I would buy another.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Awesome sound, BUT unreliable connectivity I was hugely excited when I found this product. I really love the JBL sound and own several of their portable speakers. This device didn't disappoint in that department - impressively strong bass presence in a small package. However, this is completely overshadowed by a poor implementation of Chromecast. It is generally unreliable and disconnects randomly. Sometimes I can't even get it to work without restarting it. This is very, very disappointing and I really hope this can be resolved soon. For now, this is going back to the store for a refund...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Impressed for a small speaker The quality of the sound is great for small wireless speaker. I think it is perfect for a bedroom or other area where you aren't expecting a huge thumping sound. It is plenty loud and the quality improves after it is used for a while. The chromecast works awesome! As stated in many professional views, this is a great value speaker!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Chromecast goodness I bought this speaker a couple of weeks ago and it has been excellent. The main reason I went for this model was because of the built in Chromecast, it works flawlessly and was a breeze to set up. The sound quality is quite reasonable for this price point too.

Product Q&A

Hello, is there a pilot to connect my laptop to the speaker? The PC sees the speaker, but it doesn't play any sound... and if I &quot;cast&quot; via wifi there is a sound latency so it's not ideal.

Can i control it with google assistant? For example can i say : hey google play spotify on my Playlist device?

Asked by: Tomis
Actually, YES you CAN control it with Google Assistant! You can use the Google Assistant on your phone, tablet, iPad, Google Home, Google Home Mini, etc and tell it to play music on your Playlist. You can also use Spotify's Connect feature to play music directly to the speaker. And you can use the speaker as a Bluetooth device. I own 2 of these JBL Playlist devices, and I control them separately with my Google Assistant, as well as in combination with other devices around my home using Google Home Device Groups.

When I start play music via Spotify Connect music starts but after several seconds there is only silence for several seconds and after that music plays again. When I use Google Cast (from Spotify or any other app) there are no issues. What the problem?

Asked by: jbltester
I believe for Spotify 'Connect' to work you must have a paid subscription to Spotify. It will not work properly for a free account.

I've been having problems with the device beeing muted. The bluetooth connections appear to be OK but the sound just doesn't come out. It happens a lot. How can I fix it? maybe resetting? (excuse me about my English, it's not my first language)

Asked by: pablobezerra88
I am having exactly the same issue. Are you connecting it to Laptop/PC with Windows 10, or SmartTV? The Support team standard answer is the device was designed for Smart Phones and Tablets. I believe that this product needs firmware updated as it remains &quot;Muted&quot; if not connected to Smart Phone or Tablet

Hi there, I am planning to buy the JBL Playlist, for now I cast most of the time using the google chrome cast attached to my TV and having the sound from my TV speaker. Is it possible to View on my TV and having the sound on My JBL speaker when I cast?&nbsp;

Asked by: DES09
Unfortunately we can't answer this. This is a question for your TV manufacturer or whatever source they are using to cast to your TV. If you are using a source, and the source is able to cast to 2 units at once, the TV for video and the speaker for audio, then it will work. It's up to the source component.

as in this unit, Google crome cast in-built, can i connect it to my tv to make it smart tv??? as we can connect Google crome cast to tv to make it smart tv ....

Asked by: shailendra jaiswal
Unfortunately the JBL Playlist cannot be connected to your TV to make it a Smart TV. The Chromecast built-in feature on it allows you to cast media from one device such as your smartphone into the speaker so that it allows the speaker to reproduce the same signal that was cast onto it.
