Google recently announced its new « Locate » network for Android. However, some readers have a feeling of déjà vu. In this new « Ask Griots », we’ll try to clear things up.

A new feature for the ecosystem

Android’s new Find My Device network is a real innovation for the ecosystem. Until now, to find your phone, it had to be connected to the Internet. This new network works both when the phone is connected to the Internet and offline. When the phone is not connected to the Internet, its position is detected by other nearby Android devices via Bluetooth, then transmitted to Google.

And it also works with accessories such as headphones and trackers.

What about Samsung users?

For Samsung users, this is nothing new in itself. SmartThings Find already lets you find your Samsung smartphone and accessories from this application, even if they’re not connected to the Internet. In addition, Samsung’s solution offers more options than Google’s.

However, for those using, say, a Sony headset, which is not compatible with the SmartThings app, Google’s new Find network may help them find their headset.
