Android TV is an operating system is expanding without making a lot of noise. Increasingly, users are more familiar with this interface and as it could not be otherwise now that is about the Google I/O 2018, we see some interesting movements with respect to the Google operating system for tvs.
indeed, Android TV is not only on televisions, also what we have in the popular set-top boxes such as the My Box TV. Now, they are announcing a new device that combines the best of several ecosystems. We talk about the new JBL Link Bar, a sound bar compatible with Google Assistant but that also has Android TV.
We are looking at a hybrid device that offers us something very interesting because we are not only a product of sound, also multimedia and connected. Several worlds in a single product in addition to synchronized in a way quite natural, which leads us to think that surely see more of this type during the next few months.
JBL Link Bar, a bar of sound range of input very connected
The JBL Link Bar is a sound bar elongated shape that is designed to be mounted under a tv. But it has several features. The first is that she is compatible with Assistant so we will be listening to it constantly as do Google Home. We can talk to him, tell him the classic ‘OK, Google’ to ask themes, and this we will answer.
In the second place, it is also a product Android TV. Has four HDMI ports and through one of them you can connect to any television set to provide Android TV. We also have Ethernet connection and a jack of 3.5 mm
What’s interesting is that in conjunction with Assistant we can say via voice that will put us directly in a particular program. Although the television is off, the JBL Link Bar will be able to understand the request, turning on the tv and open the particular app to show us the movie that we want or the video that we’ve told you.
Logically, it is a sound bar and the section of acoustic line. Even so, it is a bar, sound range input, and the output is only 30W, with dual tweeter and a woofer. If we attend to the quality offered by JBL in speakers, this soundbar will continue to listen to great despite the low power.
Android TV and Google Assistant, two products that fit the natural way
The price of the JBL Link Bar has not yet been announced but it is expected that below the two hundred euros. Google has announced that it will be available in fall of 2018.
This new toolbar of sound opens the door to a whole range of hybrid devices that combine Google Assistant with Android TV, two sides of the same coin that in the end are the ecosystem of Google. One where many manufacturers are linked and where we can come either from products of sound, tvs, or this new type of hybrid products that are sure we will see more models.
The JBL Link Bar is a product that offers good sound, compatibility Assistant and multimedia thanks to the Android TV. Three aspects that until now have almost always been separated but are offered here intermingled.
