FAQs & How-Tos
Can I factory reset my JBL Playlist speaker?
Yes, the JBL Playlist can be reset to factory settings. First, Power ON the JBL Playlist. Secondly, press and hold the Play and Volume (-) buttons simultaneously for about 10 seconds, and after 10 seconds you should see the Play/Pause and Bluetooth button light up, followed by the speaker going into Standby. Once you see the speaker powers back ON, reset is complete.
Does the Wi-Fi indicator on the front of JBL Playlist, has to be at full signal to work?
If the Wi-Fi indicator has all 3 LED lights on, then the signal to the speaker is extremely good, and if only 2 LED light up, then the signal will be good. If you only have 1 LED light or No LED light we suggest moving the speaker to a different location for a better Wi-Fi signal and better audio experience.

You can have 3 smart devices connected at the same time and by pressing play on either one of the sources (smart devices) will start streaming music.
