JBL Link Bar Will Provide The Android TV Experience With Google Assistant Built-In
Google is dedicating more resources than ever on Google Assistant for Android TV. JBL and Google recently announced about JBL Link Bar, a soundbar which has Google Assistant built in and is powered by Android TV. It is expected to be in stores by fall.
This is not a one-off device. Google explains that “Android TV is evolving to support new form factors” and that JBL’s is “the first in a series of hybrid devices that delivers a full Assistant speaker and Android TV experience.”
Android TV, unfortunately, has not been received well because of Roku’s market domination and Google Chromecast’s success. Android TV devices have Google Assistant built-in now and thanks to this feature, the users can use voice commands to play their showpiece.
With the Link Bar, using just your voice, you can now listen to music, watch Youtube videos, and even control and manage your smart home devices. You can make use of Assistant at any point in time, even when the TV is switched off. The cost and other details are expected to be released later this year.
