How do I control the speaker?
What is the wireless range of the SoundLink Mini speaker I?
On average, the speaker will work within 30 feet of your paired Bluetooth device. Walls and construction materials can affect reception at times.
Can I stream music (PandoraÂ®, RhapsodyÂ®, etc.) from my computer to the SoundLink Mini speaker I?
Yes, as long as your computer is enabled for Bluetooth and is within 30 feet of the speaker.
If Iâ€™m using my smartphone with the SoundLink Mini speaker I, will phone calls play through the speaker?
No. A phone call interrupts your audio source and plays through your phone only. When the call ends, your music automatically resumes through the SoundLink Mini speaker I.
How do I check battery life? What is the playing/charging time of the battery?
When the speaker is turned on, the battery indicator lights up for 3 seconds, then turns off to conserve power. To check the charge, press and hold the power button, and the indicator light will come on. The light is green when the battery has 70 percent or more charge. Yellow indicates a charge of 20 to 70 percent. And red means less than 20 percent battery life.
Battery performance varies depending on the content and the volume at which itâ€™s played. In typical usage, a fully charged battery gives you up to seven hours. The battery will fully charge in three hours.
Can I use the SoundLink Mini speaker I as part of my home wireless network?
No, the SoundLink Mini speaker I works only with the Bluetooth wireless protocol. If youâ€™re looking for speakers that connect via Wi-FiÂ®, have a look at our Multi-room speakers.
Can the SoundLink Mini speaker I be used to provide audio for video, such as for watching a movie on a tablet?
Yes. However, the quality of the experienceâ€”specifically, synchronization between audio and videoâ€”can be influenced by the Bluetooth implementation on the viewing device. You will get the best performance by keeping the SoundLink Mini speaker and the device in close proximity, which minimizes wireless interference. Use of Wi-FiÂ® in the area also may affect performance.
