How to Connect a JBL Speaker with a Smartphone/Computer?

First of all, let’s stick to the basics and learn how you can simply connect your JBL speakers with your smartphone or your computer via Bluetooth. Here are the steps that you can follow if you want to connect any JBL speaker with your mobile or computer:

  • The first thing you have to do is power on your JBL speaker by pressing the power button given on the speaker.
  • Once the speaker is On, you will see a blinking LED light on the speaker.
  • If you have turned on the speaker for the first time, it will automatically go into the Pairing Mode.
  • Otherwise, you can click the Bluetooth button on the Speaker to enter the Bluetooth Pairing Mode.
  • Now, open the Bluetooth Settings on your mobile phone, or computer.
  • On the device, click on Add a Bluetooth Device, or Pair a New Bluetooth Device option.
  • When the speaker is in Pairing Mode, its name will automatically appear in the Available Device’s list in your mobile/computer’s Bluetooth Settings.
  • Click on the Speaker’s name in the list, and then choose to Pair the devices.
  • Once the Bluetooth connection between the device and the speaker is established, the blinking of the LED light will stop, and it’ll become solid. This means that your JBL speaker is now connected with your mobile/computer successfully.

Depending on the speaker model you have, check if the speaker supports JBL Connect+ or JBL PartyBoost application. These applications can be installed on mobile devices freely as they are available on both Android and iOS platforms. With these applications, you can update the firmware of your JBL speakers and use other interesting features.

How to Connect Multiple JBL Speakers with a Single Device?

If you own a JBL speaker, you must already know that most JBL speakers do come with the functionality to pair with other JBL speakers which is quite a handy feature if you have multiple speakers lying around. While most JBL speakers are compatible with most other models, connecting them with each other is fairly simple. But, there’s a catch!

For instance, JBL Flip 4 speakers come with the JBL Connect+ feature, while the successor model, JBL Flip 5 supports JBL PartyBoost. Hence, speakers supporting these two different platforms can’t be connected to each other. Yes, it’s quite a frustrating thing, but you can’t do anything about it. However, if you have two speakers of a similar model, the pairing process is a lot easier and convenient.

Here are the steps that you can follow to connect multiple JBL speakers with a single device:

  • First of all, you have to pair one speaker with your smartphone.
  • To do so, power on your speaker and hold its Bluetooth button for 3 seconds. This will make the speaker go into the Bluetooth Pairing Mode.
  • If you have previously connected the speaker to your phone, you can skip these steps as the speaker will automatically connect with your phone when you power it on.
  • To pair the speaker with a new mobile device,  click the Bluetooth button to activate the Bluetooth Pairing Mode.
  • Then, go to the mobile’s Bluetooth Settings and tap on the Pair A New Device option.
  • Tap on your JBL speakers name, and simply pair it with your smartphone.
  • In case the mobile asks for a code at the time of pairing, look for it on the speaker’s box, or manual. Or, simply try ‘0000’ as it’s what is used mostly on Bluetooth Speakers.
  • Now, turn on the second speaker, and click the PartyBoost or Connect+ button on both the speakers at the same time.
  • This will barely take a few seconds, both of your speakers will be connected together.


JBL speakers are usually easy to connect and you should not find it difficult to even connect multiple speakers with your smartphone since you have our helpful guide in hand. However, what you have to make sure of is that both speakers should be compatible with the same software. PartyBoost and Connect+ are different platforms, and speakers supporting different platforms can’t be connected to each other.
