Google has officially announced the availability of the Find My Device network for Android. This update makes the already useful feature more useful. It will help you track devices even when they are offline. This will eventually increase the chances of you finding the lost device.

The update for the Find My Device network for Android is currently rolling out across the world. To get the update, you will need devices running Android 9 or later. That means most of the phones released in the past few years are eligible for the enhanced anti-lost feature.

You can track those two devices even when they are powered off or when their battery is dead. Google says that it could enable this special feature for the Pixel phones because of “specialized Pixel hardware.” Another thing to note is that the new Find My Device network isn’t just for smartphones.

Starting next month, new Bluetooth trackers will be on the market. They will be compatible with the Find My Device network. This will eventually mean you will soon get proper alternatives for Apple AirTag. They will also be compatible with unknown tracker alerts, which will alert you when you’re getting tracked without you knowing about it.
