Google has finally launched the Android Find My Device network

Google is one of the most innovative companies in the world. But in technology, in some sectors, there are companies that are way ahead. Today Google finally launched its own device “discovery” network… but Apple has had it for a long time.

If you have Android, try to find my device's network

Google today launched its Find My Device network for Android devices, “copying” the functionality of Apple's ‌Find My‌ network, which aims to locate Apple devices.

Just like Apple's ‌Find My‌ network (Find My‌ network in Portuguese), the Android ‌Find My‌ Device network is able to use millions of available Android devices (with Android 9 or later) to "follow" lost, stolen, and/or the missing. A lost Android smartphone can make a connection with nearby Android devices using Bluetooth, and transmit location information to the owner.

From what we know, some devices, like the Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro, will be easy to detect even when they're turned off or when the battery is dead.

From next month, it will also be possible to locate other items, as long as they have a Chipolo or Pebblebee Bluetooth chip.

Google has announced that it will soon add support for eufy, Jio, Motorola and other brands. Upcoming software updates will also make earbuds from JBL, Sony, and other suppliers “trackable,” making it possible to see them on the network.
