Google is reportedly working on its location tracker, similar to Apple’s AirTags and Samsung’s SmartTag. According to a well-sourced leaker, Kuba Wojciechowski, Google’s Nest team is developing a location tracker codenamed ‘Grogu.’ He tweeted, “It’s worth mentioning that Google is currently working with multiple chipset manufacturers to bring support for the new Fast Pair-based technology to their products to enable OEMs to develop their trackers without much hassle.”

More Details on Google’s Location Tracker – Grogu

The evidence of Google’s location tracker was found when Kuba noticed that the company added support for locator tags in the developer hub for Fast Pair – an Android feature that lets you quickly connect Bluetooth devices. The tracker will reportedly include an onboard speaker, support for Bluetooth Low Energy, and ultra-wideband (UWB). “It has an onboard speaker, similar to AirTags. It should come in a few different colours,” tweeted Kuba.

As per details, the Grogu will work on Bluetooth and ultra-wideband (UWB) technology, unlike the Apple Airtag, which runs on Bluetooth. Since UWB isn’t widely used in other Android phones, Google will introduce it in Pixel 6 and 7, making it a perfect match for Grogu, which will direct you to nearby objects accurately.

Release Date of Grogu

While Google’s location tracker device is just speculation, no one knows when its prototype will come out or when the actual device will be revised. But the tipster believes that the tech giant could announce the technology at Google I/O and launch it at the annual fall event alongside new Google Pixel devices.
