Lost your keys? Google Assistant can help.
Google announced this week that the Google Assistant now works with Tile, a little Bluetooth tracker than you can attach to your keys, backpack, purse, or other object. Open up the Google Home app to set up your Tile with the Assistant.
Once you’re set up, you can just say something like “Hey Google, ring my backpack” to make your Tile ring or “Hey Google, where is my purse?” to get the location of your Tile. You can also use the Assistant on any Nest device, like the Nest Mini or Nest Hub, to locate your Tile.
You could already use your smartphone to locate a Tile using the tracker’s official app. But with Google Assistant support, you can now locate your Tile more easily using just your voice. And when you’ve lost your wallet or backpack and you’re worried and hunting for it, the more quickly you can find your lost item the better.
