Select JBL Bluetooth speakers now support Google Now commands

JBL Xtreme

If you own the JBL Xtreme, Pulse 2, Charge 3, and the Flip 3, you will now be able to use Google Now commands on them with the help of a dedicated app created by JBL. Now available on Android, the JBL Connect is a free application downloadable from the Google Play Store, adding extra functionality to your existing Bluetooth speakers. Not only will this come as good news to existing owners, but it will also allow serve to be a major selling point for those looking to get any of the aforementioned speakers.

In order to use this new feature, a firmware update will be required, and the chances are that you won’t get it right away. JBL mentions that newly sold models of the speakers will come with the required firmware by default, thus saving you from updating it manually. As for the functionality, it’s pretty simple as users are only required to tap the ‘Multifunction Button’ on the speakers to activate voice commands. You can initiate a new phone call, skip tracks, increase the volume and so on.

Make sure you download the JBL Connect app from the Play Store link below.
