FAQs & How-Tos

  • Upgrading the software on your PartyBoost or Connect+ Speaker

    Software updates for your speaker can be done using the JBL Portable app.
    Download it from the Apple App store and Google Play store.
    If there is an available update, look for the small red dot above the gear icon and follow the download instructions (see image below).
    If you have an issue with your device it is always worth checking if there is a Software update available and performing the installation if there is.


  • Smart TV Compatibility

    It is always recommended to use our range of Soundbars, such as the JBL Bar series - if you want a speaker for your Television or Smart TV as they are designed specifically for this use, whereas our Portable speakers are designed primarily for use with Phones and Tablets.

    Portable speakers with an Aux-in port, such as the Xtreme 3 and Boombox 3 - if connected through an Aux cable, should have less issues compared to using Bluetooth, however there can be issues with audio/video synchronization if used for this purpose.

    Support for Bluetooth connectivity between a TV and speaker depends on a number of different factors such as Bluetooth & A2DP versions and Audio Codecs used by each device. This can vary based on the brand, model and age of the devices, however we cannot confirm if any specific combination of TV and speaker will work without issues such as latency or lip sync delay.
  • My device is waterproof, but what about salt water or chlorine water?

    Your JBL speaker is waterproof with IPX7 rating. (IPX7 means it can survive immersion in 1 meter/3.3 feet for up to 30 minutes.) To maintain the looks and functions of your speaker, please make sure to rinse it with fresh water after using it at a swimming pool or the ocean, then dry off all covers and areas where water can gather. The standard for waterproofing is for tap water. Chemicals and salt in your pool or the ocean can damage the waterproof seals or harm the surface finish over time if not rinsed off after use.

  • Issues with the JBL Portable App and your Android device

    There might be several reasons that our Portable app may not be working correctly on your Android device. First, your Android device must have 5.0 OS (Operating system) or higher to support JBL Connect app. Devices under 5.0 OS will not be supported. If you are having trouble viewing your JBL Portable device in the app, please disable Bluetooth, and then turn it back on again. Now you should be able to see your device in the JBL Portable app.

    7. Allow the app to identify both speakers.
    8. Click the Partyboost button, you will see the option for Party or Stereo, select Stereo.

    Please note: Stereo Mode can only be enabled when 2 of the same speaker model are used.
    For example, you will not be able to achieve Stereo Mode with a Flip 5 and Flip 6, only Party Mode.
    Also, it is not possible to pair speaker models with Connect and Connect+ together, or pair to speaker models with Partyboost.

  • What is the procedure to reset Xtreme?

    With the speaker ON, press and hold the VOL+ and Pause/Play buttons for 5-6 seconds. The Xtreme shuts down, and is now reset. You will need to 'forget' the speaker in Bluetooth settings on your phone/tablet in order to pair it again.

  • IP67 Information

    This product is rated IP67, which is different from IPX7. IP67 protects the product from submersion in 1 meter (3.3 feet) of water for up to 30 minutes. It is also resistant against dust. Dust accumulation around electronics can lead to hardware failure, so the IP67 rating is an extremely beneficial addition to this product. 
  • When I connect my JBL speaker with a computer (PC/Laptop/Apple Mac/Nintendo Switch), can I use the PartyBoost feature?

    The PartyBoost feature is not available when your JBL speaker is connected to a computer via Bluetooth. This is a technical limitation. When connected to a computer, the computer is acting as the primary device. Therefore, the JBL speaker does not have control of re-transmitting the Bluetooth signal to other JBL speakers.

    NOTE: Speakers effected by this are the JBL Flip 5, JBL Flip 6, JBL Charge 5, JBL Pulse 4, JBL Xtreme 3, and JBL Boombox 2, as well as all future products featuring the PartyBoost feature.
  • Renaming of the JBL Connect App to JBL Portable

    The JBL Connect app will be renamed as JBL Portable on the App Store and Google Play store in January 2021, it will still be possible to find the app in each store by searching for either JBL Connect or JBL Portable.
  • Does my Speaker have Speakerphone/Voice Assistant Functionality?

    This product does not feature speakerphone or voice assistant functionality as it does not have a microphone.
