Is there a mode where the lights can remain on but there's no audio coming out of the speaker? If so, how's the battery life in such a scenario, provided the product is only used as a light over one battery cycle?

Asked by: luismsfern
If you plug it in it stays on without needing audio. I fell asleep listening to it one night. The music stopped but the lights stayed on until I turned them off the next morning.

How much better is the pulse 4 compared to the pulse 3

Asked by: Mytic
The sound was much better with Pulse 3. You want good sound from a speaker, JBL forgot that it seams. Get Pulse 3 back!

is it possible to keep the color of the screen blue and how do you do it

Asked by: socaltom25
@Mario I followed up your guide and there is no option to show only one color, there are still at least two or three, even if select one. And the brightness on the minimal level is still too light.

Why can’t the Pulse 4 connect to Link Portable??  I wanted Google Assistant and thought I could at least link the Pulse to Link Portable, which has Google Assistant, but no!  Deal breaker for me.  Pulse is just a pretty light show otherwise.

Asked by: ManneM
Our JBL Pulse 4 has the JBL PartyBoost feature which the JBL Link Portable doesn't have. JBL PartyBoost allows you to connect Bluetooth speakers with the PartyBoost feature together.
