JBL confirm Link Bar for ANZ

Audio brand JBL have confirmed that their Link Bar, debuted at Google's I/O 2018 developer conference, will be coming to Australia and New Zealand later in the year.

According to them, "This product will be available in Australia and New Zealand in October 2018."

"The LINK BAR will be the industry’s first Soundbar powered by Android TV with the Google Assistant built in. It’s designed to combine JBL’s audio expertise and Android TV’s plethora of content, delivering a smarter way to watch your favourite content with best-in-class sound."

The idea here is to merge a soundbar, smart speaker and set-top/media box into the one device.

"The LINK BAR turns any TV, regardless of make or model, into a Smart TV. Just by saying “Hey Google,” you’ll open the door to a world of programming available hands-free through Android TV."

Pricing and exact launch details are to be announced.
