JBL Link 20


JBL Link 20 review: Want a Google Assistant speaker that you can take out of the house? the JBL Link 20 might be the one you're looking for.

Confident sound ; Rugged, waterproof build ; Responsive microphones ; Built-in Bluetooth

No Google Assistant without Wi-Fi ; Sound is solid rather than stunning

A strong Google Assistant speaker that you can take out of the house

JBL Link 20 review


Want decent sound with minimal fuss? JBL has a solution...

Good sound quality ; Google Assistant ; 24-bit/96kHz streaming ; IPX7 waterproofing

Sound quality could be more nuanced and authoratitive ; Google Assistant needs wi-fi connection ; No 3.5mm input

Small, smart, and a solid sound – the Link 20 ticks a lot of the right boxes

JBL Link 20 Google Assistant smart speaker review


A smart home speaker you can also take out to the park

Fully portable ; Has Bluetooth as well as Google Home ; Good mic array ; Full sound

Not as dynamic of exciting sounding as the best ; Constrained soundstage ; No aux input

It may not be the pinnacle of sound dynamics and coherence, but this full-sounding smart home speaker is more flexible than most. The JBL Link 20 is a wireless speaker that flips with a button press between roles as a smart home unit and a portable...

JBL Link 20 review: Google Assistant makes a splash on JBL’s brilliant little Bluetooth speaker


Want a compact, portable speaker with Google Assistant built-in? JBL's Link 20 ticks all the right boxes

IPX7 waterproofing ; Google Assistant built-in

Mediocre sound quality ; No 3.5mm auxiliary jack

The JBL Link 20 is simply the cheapest, most versatile Bluetooth speaker with Google Assistant built-in. It might not outperform larger rivals for sound quality, but its blend of sound quality, smart assistant convenience and sensible design are hugely...

The JBL Link 20, bigger brother to the JBL Link 10, packs in larger sound drivers and a longer-life battery. The Google Assistant voice assistant functionality not only lets you control your music hands-free, but also carry out useful tasks such as...

JBL's voice-enabled Link 20 is the anti-Alexa speaker you should hear


The Link 20 may arguably be the best battery-powered voice-enabled speaker for the price.

The Google Assistant-enabled JBL Link 20 has Google Chromecast built in and can be linked to other Link and Chromecast speakers to create a multiroom set-up. It delivers strong sound for a portable speaker, is fully waterproof, and has both Wi-Fi and...

Slow start-up time; some distortion at higher volumes.

Among the handful of voice-enabled portable Wi-Fi speakers out there, the JBL Link 20 is arguably the best for the money.

JBL Link 20 Review: Google Assistant in a Portable Bluetooth Speaker


The JBL Link 20 delivers almost all the features of Google Home in a portable speaker that sounds great.

Powered by Google Assistant ; Portable and rugged ; Well-balanced overall sound

Can't make calls

The JBL Link 20 outperforms the Google Home in almost every way. It sounds better, and offers portability and ruggedness. When using Google Assistant, it's responsive to commands, and I found only one thing it couldn't do: make calls. The benefits of...

Hands On with JBL's Versatile, Voice-Activated LINK 20 Speaker


The LINK 20 has Bluetooth in addition to Chromecast and a Wi-Fi connection is required to take advantage of all that the Google Assistant has to offer. You can set up multiple LINKs throughout the home to all play the same music — even using the LINK...
