Google is modernizing its technology for finding lost devices
Google developers are going to modernize the algorithm of the Find My Device utility to increase the efficiency of finding lost gadgets. The new version of the program is currently under testing, but it is already clear that users will be able to search for their devices through the owners of other smartphones and tablets on Android.

The main distinguishing feature of the functionality of the new application assembly is sending notifications both to the owner of the lost device and to his authorized representatives. When a smartphone is found, the user will be able to call it if the device is nearby.

At the same time, the program will also receive the function of joint ownership of the device, thanks to which several people will be able to control the same smartphone. This option will become relevant for both families and corporate clients. To use the function, you will need to apply the generated link or QR code.

In addition to the above functionality, the developers contemplated the option of integrating the search function into the Android Automotive platform, but later abandoned this idea, since in this case there would be a risk of the device being blocked by an attacker after the vehicle was stolen. Also, Google in the future may well introduce the function of blocking the auto profile and deleting all information from the on-board computer.
