Google might be making its own version of AirTags

2023-01-17 14:43 by


Google is working on its own location tracking tag to compete with Apple AirTags and Tile trackers, according to developer and leaker Kuba Wojciechowski.

The tracker, according to Wojciechowski, is codenamed "Grogu" (the name of the baby Yoda character from the Star Wars series The Mandalorian) alongside the alternate names "GR10" and "Groguaudio," and is currently being developed by the Google Nest team. That doesn't mean it'll launch as a Nest-branded product, but Wojciechowski suggests the tracker might be released in multiple color options and include an onboard speaker to help users locate a missing device via sound, similar to that of an Apple AirTag.

The device reportedly supports Bluetooth low-energy (LE) and ultra wide-band (UWB), and could feature a small internal speaker for alerts.

Wojciechowski estimates that Google may announce the product during the Google I/O Developer Conference sometime in May 2023 and that the trackers could be released alongside new Pixel devices during a Google event in the fall.
