Link to the blast


Pretty soon, a speaker with built in Google Assistant will be about as news worthy as a car with air con. But for now, there remains something novel about ordering a crap song to be skipped from the other side of the room; which brings us to JBL’s Link 500 – the most powerful Googlified speaker on the market according to its maker. Far field mics mean it should have no problems hearing you over its full of bass and room filling stereo sound, while dual 2.4GHz and 5Ghz Wi-Fi gives you a better connection. You can also go multi-room with other speakers that have Chromecast built in, meaning you’ll able to use voice commands to fill the whole house with the very worst of Coldplay.
