Google Assistant will soon help you find lost items with Tile

"Google, find my keys."

Google Assistant will soon be able to do more than just set reminders, make calls or book appointments for you. Soon enough, your handy voice assistant would be able to find your lost items if you have a Tile keychain.

Tile has teamed up with Google to integrate the cloud-based finding platform with Google Assistant. Through the partnership, the companies developed a way through which individuals who own Tile keychains can ring their lost Tire even when their phone is not around.

Tile’s tracking devices can be attached to a set of keys or to gadgets and other items that people care about. It comes with a dedicated app that owners of Tile trackers use to check the location of the tracked items. The Tile trackers can be set to ring when it gets closer to the owner. It also works both ways. When your phone goes missing, you can press a button on the Tile tracker to make your phone ring even when it’s on silent mode.

There are three types of Tile trackers that you can purchase on Amazon.com: Tile Pro, Slim and Mate.

A single Tile Pro is currently discounted on Amazon.com at 33% off for just $23.42. The Tile Slim, meanwhile, is worth $30.00 and it’s perfect for wallets and phones. The Tile Mate is the smallest and the cheapest at just $22.31. That’s discounted by 11%. There’s also a sports version of the Tile that currently retails at as low as $18.75.

The partnership with Google lets Tile owners direct ring their Tiles via voice command through Google Assistant.

“This is big news for Tile customers… “If you were to lose or misplace your wallet, remote, backpack - anything, Google will soon join your personal search party with a simple voice command,” Tile CEO CJ Prober was quoted as saying.

The Google Assistant integration on Tile devices will roll out later this year, Tile said.

Tile’s closest competitor is the Cube Tracker, which is priced at about $29.95. Verizon also recently launched its very own Verizon Smart Locator, while rival Sprint has a product that’s simply called Tracker.
