Google rolls out Find My Device network for Android devices

Google started the rollout for its Find My Device network for Android users today, starting with the US and Canada.

The upgraded system is compatible with Android 9 and later versions, making it easier to track devices even when offline.

Google has emphasized their commitment to user safety and privacy with multiple layers of protection. This is inclusive of end-to-end encryption and device location reporting to fend off unwanted tracking from other locations and devices.

The search engine giant also has a unique perk for devices with Pixel hardware.

And for Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro users, you may track down your devices even with the power off. But if readers are also wondering, yes, you may track your device with a dead battery too.

Additionally, starting next month, new Bluetooth tracker tags from Chipolo and Pebblebee will hit the market. These are particularly designed to work smoothly with the Find My Device app.

The tags also offer compatibility with unknown tracker alerts across Android and iOS, making for great protection versus unwanted tracking.

A ‘Find nearby’ feature is also in the works for release next month, helping users locate missing devices nearby.
