Last week I visited the royal capital (also called Fjollträsk) to participate in a product demonstration signed by JBL. I had no real hope, and I was not so interested in this with "smart speakers," but it seemed from the point of view that since then I have been unwise thinking about where this technology will take us where we are moving.
As an educated conservative person, I feel too much change and I love what I know I could and feel – it's information that I never gave out for reading. Since I'm working and with it (along with the Google Home / Assistant, which does not work like this, like with iTunes music), I have not purchased any smart speakers nor are I looking for a future purchase. In the same way, with some interest I was obviously following the events and saw how breathtaking 22% of the Americans got. Thus, this kind of technology is the only dominant way out of the television (in this regard, in the countries).
The Felted Throne product appeared on a daily basis at the regular (now) penthouse Odenplan, where comedy and program manager Jakob Öqvist (the most famous of Wake from NRJ) spent the usual day with JBL lifestyle technology as the main point. He awoke at noon 19:40 and instead of fighting his Iphone X for a quarter (as he always did before becoming his wise JBL speaker), he started in the morning saying "Hello Google" for the second time turning on the flood lights, start the coffee machine and read the weather. He then asked JBL Link 20 (and British bond 500) to launch the TV, play the Bodyguard (BBC) Netflix, then ask Link 500 to play a Swedish mafia in all home speakers.
After that, we managed to stay on the floor and control the house through Google's helper. I turned off and lit the light, switching colors to light (thanks to Philips Hue), launched a dishwasher, and switched from terrible, terrible home music to John Mayer's best using Spotify (all speakers). Despite the feeling of new technology, which usually causes many childhood illnesses and painful new problems, the "smart house" seemed unsuccessful and it was clear in these lessons as if we were going to experience something in the future that would be standard in our home. But while I was at home, I started thinking the same way. Is this something I really want? Do I want to talk about my technology that I have at home? Will I better remove voice commands and not my light and music control with my mobile phone (or my Apple Watch 4)? The answer is no. Today, I do not feel that starting my home starts with the speakers, although the JBL product demonstration was very impressive. That being said, my skepticism about my use does not mean that Link 20's average price speaker is not good. Exactly opposite. This is great, and here comes my statement.
Link 20 looks pretty much the same as the JBL Flip 4 with a durable rubber thread and an iconic JBL logo that will decorate the speaker center. Link 20 is at the top and bottom of the Google Support logo and volume buttons, even if the container is obvious, nobody should use the buttons, but instead simply ask the speaker to increase or decrease the volume.
How does it all work? Very easy. You load the Google free app by running a loudspeaker and implementing the Sonos flavor, a very simple installation process, in which the speaker, of course, learns to recognize your voice. Then simply start the conversation and talk to the loudspeaker, starting with the voice command Hello Google. When the loudspeaker hears, the four buttons blink at the top of the speaker, and as soon as you assign a command or ask a question, the lights will blink before answering the command. In my test hours, I have asked, among other things, is there any pit that is the pig that Petter Hegevall is (ego journey, yes!) And many other meaningless questions, and just like Alexa or Siri, this is a knowledgeable and prompt assistant who finkammar online to find answers to what you are interested in. Of course, this means that link 20 and all other Link speakers require Wi-Fi, which is a little shame. It would be nice if it could turn to the blue tooth and instead use the network also on your mobile phone. Another part of the speaker, which I think deserves a bit, is the fact that it totally lacks 3.5 mm input.
Thankfully, the merit is considerably more than minus points, because Link 20 offers the same really beneficial and warm / upward sound like JBL Charge speakers as well as editorial favorite JBL Boombox. As usual with American speakers, I rarely hear or experience the sound as hard or angled, quite the opposite. Link 20 sounds very similar to Bose's wireless speakers, and I think it's really a good thing. It is both shockproof and water resistant, which we tested on the product display by setting the loudspeaker in the shower.
JBL is one of the first truly big manufacturers to switch to a smart train and there is no doubt that Link 20 is a quality product. It's a reps, durable, durable, versatile and offers a funny sound like JBL speakers.
