JBL Playlist with Chromecast™ Built-in Technology
The JBL Playlist wireless home speaker utilizes Wi-Fi to effortlessly cast music from favorite streaming apps in high-quality sound.
JBL Playlist gives music lovers the ability to instantly stream music, radio, or podcasts directly to the speakers with the touch of a button through the Chromecast built-in technology. Chromecast works over Wi-Fi and allows listeners to easily access favorite music from popular music services like Spotify and Pandora without pairing via Bluetooth—controlling speaker functions directly from a smartphone. When streaming over Wi-Fi, the need to be within a fixed proximity to connect to the speaker is eliminated.
With JBL Playlist, audiophiles can seamlessly listen to music by simply tapping the cast button from a favorite music service on their smartphone without any interruptions from phone calls or text messages. Additionally, multiple devices can be connected to the speaker at one time, giving everyone in the home a chance to play DJ.
For listening throughout the home, connect multiple JBL Playlists or other Chromecast built-in speakers with the Google Home app. The JBL Playlist can also work seamlessly with the Google Home voice-activated speaker, allowing users to control music by voicing commands through Google Home, such as “OK Google, play some jazz on JBL Playlist.”
The JBL Playlist’s design features a wide-open surface for unrivaled sound quality and a metal passive radiator for class-leading bass performance. Its distinctive matte finish and grille fabric cover provide a sleek look that perfectly complements any room.
