At Google’s developer conference in May 2018, the company had announced an Android TV soundbar in partnership with JBL. Now, the device is finally on sale for $399.

The soundbar can connect to your TV and drive your streaming needs with apps for popular services like Netflix, HBO, Amazon Prime Video, and Hulu. Plus, it has built-in Chromecast, so you can easily stream your local content on a big screen.

What’s more, you don’t have to control it with a remote all the time. The device supports Google Assistant, so you can control the playback through voice commands.

To drive the sound, JBL’s soundbar has two 0.8-inch tweeters and four 1.7-inch x 3.2-inch racetrack drivers. If you don’t want to watch anything on the TV, you can use the soundbar to stream music too.
