Link Bar is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 26.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Sound, Lots of Features The sound bar was super easy to setup, even with a TV that is a bit old (2yo Sony). Got to say, had to open up the manual to make sure the HDMI was properly hooked up, but that was easy going. Man oh man, the sound is great with TV. I love the Spotify casting feature and all the apps the sound bar supports. 100% would recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great all in one device The Link bar is a great device that combines a 4K ready Android TV, a Google Home Max, and a Bluetooth enabled JBL soundbar. It has made the setup very simple and clutter free with 4 HDMI and one Optical inputs. I finally replaced my 4 year old JBL sound bar, that still works great. The only thing I miss is the wired subwoofer that I had in the prior setup. There is an option to add a JBL wireless subwoofer that could give much better low frequency performance. It would be great if JBL made a wireless module, that could help to connect to pre-existing subwoofers. Overall, everything works as advertised.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I was excited to get the JBL Bar and try it with my Smart TV, it did not disappoint me in any way. It has a great sound and is easy to set up to access Netflix, Phinem YouTube TV, and Silk Browser. I like to listen to music artist on YouTube and the Link Bar enhances the experience with the full rich and great sound it produces. Connecting this to my TV was very easy and you can control it with your voice, phone, or the remote it comes with! Easy to set up and use. With the JBL LInk Bar it also reduces the clutter around the TV being the only source of sound without the subwoofer and extra tweeters.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loaded with features! I love this soundbar! Great sound, although you'll need to add a subwoofer if you love bass. Very crisp and very good voice while watching live sports. This bar is loaded with features; android tv, a handy Netflix button on the remote, Bluetooth, optic cable port, WiFi, network ports, 3 HDMI ports, and more. I hooked up my TV, cable box and DVD player directly into the bar. Run everything from there. Hook your TV to HDMI 1. After watching Netflix, simply touch the HDMI button on the remote and the TV automatically returns to HDMI 1. Love this feature! No searching, no pressing the remote to find your hookup. Set up is a breeze. Automatically hooked up to my WiFi. Wish all my electronics were this easy and intuitive. Oh, did I mention voice control? Yup!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Make any smart home smarter When I received this in the mail I was very excited to open the Link Bar because every JBL package always presents its self very very nicely. Connecting this to any tv is very easy completely making it into a smart tv that you can control with your voice, phone, or the nice remote it comes with! JBL's sound concept is always a step above most speakers and I was not let down with the Link Bar. I listen to a wide variety of music from classical to hip-hop and watch tons of action movies and was more than pleased by the sound and punch this gives without a subwoofer. There is also a button to connect a wireless sub to the Bar, 3 HDMI's, 1 HDMI out (TV ARC), 1 optical, aux, ethernet, and a service outlet. Being an Android TV, there are all the Google apps right from the play store you can download. Overall this is a great product, very easy to set up, and even easier to use with the command "Hey Google".

What voice command can I use with the built-in Google Assistant to make the Link Bar change which HDMI source is active? Really hoping to not have to use the remote just to change source.

Asked by: JamesM
That's a great question, James. Let's say you have a device connected to HDMI 1 on your soundbar, you can easily say "Hey Google, switch to HDMI 1" and Google Assistant will respond to the command. Make sure to set up the Link Bar on Google Home app to enable Voice assistant.
