What purpose do the voice prompts on the SoundLink® Color speaker serve? Are they available in multiple languages?
The voice prompts guide you through the Bluetooth® pairing and connection process, so that you understand how it works. They also identify the connected devices by name, making it simpler when you're using more than one source device.

What is the wireless range of the SoundLink® Color speaker?
How do I check battery life? What is the playing/charging time of the battery?
To check the speaker's battery life, press and hold the power button. The battery indicator light (battery icon near the power button) will come on. The light is green for a full charge and amber for medium charge. When battery life gets low, the speaker's voice prompt will announce once "battery low, please charge now" and the light will blink red.
Battery performance varies depending on the content and the volume at which it's played. In typical usage, a fully charged battery lasts up to eight hours.
The battery will fully charge with the included wall charger in three hours. You can also charge the speaker battery from nearly any USB power source using the included cable. This method may take longer than the wall charger.
If I'm using my smartphone with the SoundLink® Colour speaker, will phone calls play through the speaker?
Can I stream music (Spotify®, Deezer®, etc.) from my computer to the SoundLink® Colour speaker?
Yes, as long as your computer is enabled for Bluetooth® and is within 9 metres of the speaker.
Does the SoundLink® Color speaker support Wi-Fi® or WiDi®?
No. The wireless connection for this speaker is Bluetooth® only. If you're looking for speakers that connect via Wi-Fi, have a look at our SoundTouch® Wi-Fi music systems.
Can the SoundLink® Color speaker be used to provide audio for video, such as for watching a film on a tablet?
Yes. However, quality of the experience—specifically, synchronisation between audio and video—can be influenced by the Bluetooth® implementation on the viewing device. You will get the best performance by keeping the SoundLink® Color speaker and the device in close proximity, minimising wireless interference. Use of Wi-Fi in the area may also affect performance.
