How to Make JBL Go Discoverable

To link the Go JBL speaker with a Bluetooth source device for the first time, or to reset the connection information on that device, you must know how to activate discovery mode on the Go.  Why?  Because in this mode, the JBL Go calls out its Bluetooth name and current linkage data on the BT airwaves, enabling nearby devices to use that information to connect with it.  So in this post, we show you How to make JBL Go discoverable, so you can link it to phones, tablets, computers, and smart speakers, and stream music from those devices to it.

First, turn on the speaker by pressing its  Power  button once.

The speaker then comes on, as we see next. Further, the pilot lamp on the front panel blinks blue or glows a steady blue, depending on speaker’s current pairing state.
