JBL Link View due for Xmas

Sound+Image - - News -

Among the hun­dred-odd new prod­ucts on show at the large but pri­vate-in­vite-only Har­man com­plex at the IFA show­grounds, we reckon the one most likely to get at­ten­tion quickly is the JBL Link View. This takes JBL’s suc­cess­ful Link prod­uct se­ries of wire­less Google speak­ers to an­other level, adding an eight-inch touch­screen and 5-megapixel front-fac­ing cam­era. While the Link View doesn’t have a video Chrome­cast in­side, it does have an au­dio Chrome­cast, and can ac­cess YouTube, with Voice As­sis­tant on­board which can ac­cept com­mands, make Google Duo calls and in­ter­act with other smart home Google-com­pat­i­ble prod­ucts — for ex­am­ple we were shown how it could be used to mon­i­tor se­cu­rity cam­eras. It sounded pretty good too, from the lim­ited demo we en­joyed.

Orig­i­nally shown at CES 2018, the JBL Link View is due to reach Aus­tralia in time for Christ­mas, priced at $349.95. More info: www.jbl.com.au
