Harman has previewed an early look at the JBL LINK BAR, a soundbar solution in collaboration with Google that aims to further develop the voice activated JBL LINK series.
The LINK BAR will be the first soundbar powered by Android TV with the Google Assistant built in, turning any TV, regardless of make or model, into a Smart TV.
The companies believe the LINK BAR will take its place “at the forefront of the multi-room soundbar technology revolution.”
The launch of the LINK BAR marks the latest collaboration between JBL and Google, with the Google Assistant already included in the JBL LINK 10, 20, 300 and 500 models, and the recently announced LINK VIEW and JBL Everest Google Assistant headphones.
Availability and pricing for LINK BAR will be announced later this year.
