Setting up and using your JBL Pulse 3


The JBL Pusle 3 isn't just a great Bluetooth speaker - it's also a light show. Once you've paired your speaker with your smartphone, tablet, or computer, you can cusomise the light show and even use your phone's camera to pick a colour theme.

So here's how to get started with your speaker.

Before you get started, we'd recommend downloading the JBL Connect app to your phone or tablet.

Get the JBL Connect app for Android

Get the JBL Connect app for iOS

Pairing your speaker


Here's how to pair your speaker using the JBL Connect app.


The JBL Connect app won't be able to find your speaker until it's paired with your phone or tablet.

So turn the speaker on and open the Bluetooth settings on your phone, then choose Pair new device.


Tap JBL Pulse 3 when you see it in the list.


Now that your speaker is paired, it's a good idea to check for software updates. Open the JBL Connect app.


When you see the picture of your speaker, tap the Settings icon at the bottom of the screen.


If there's one available, you'll see an Upgrade button, tap it and your phone will download the update and send it to the speaker.

This can take a few minutes.
