Google To Introduce New Tracking Device
In recent news, it has been reported that Google is developing its own version of the Galaxy SmartTag, a Bluetooth-enabled tracking device that helps users locate lost or misplaced items. The SmartTag is designed to be attached to everyday objects, such as keys or backpacks, and can be tracked using a smartphone app.
Google's version of the SmartTag has been codenamed ‘Grogu’ and will likely be integrated into the company's existing Find My Device app. Similar to the SmartTag, the Google Android tracking device will use Bluetooth technology to help users locate lost items. However, it is expected to have some additional features that differentiate it from the Galaxy SmartTag.
One of the potential features of the Android tracking device is the ability to locate lost items using augmented reality (AR) technology. This means that users will be able to see a virtual map of their surroundings, with the location of their lost item pinpointed on the map. This could be especially useful in large or crowded spaces, where it may be difficult to locate a lost item using just a sound or vibration alert.
Another rumoured feature of the Android tracking device is the ability to alert users when they have left an item behind. This could be especially useful for items that are frequently misplaced, such as keys or a wallet. The Android tracking device could use location data from the user's smartphone to detect when they are leaving a designated area, and then send an alert reminding them to grab their item before leaving.
While there is no official release date yet for the Google ‘Grogu’ tracking device, it is expected to launch sometime in the near future. If you're someone who frequently misplaces your belongings, this new tracking device from Google could be a game-changer. It will be interesting to see how it compares to other tracking devices on the market, and what other features Google has in store for this new product.
