Tile is a small hardware accessory that you can attach to items like keys, purses, bags, wallets, and more, which can then be tracked using a combination of Bluetooth technology and the wider network of Tile users running the companion app on their phone. Tile recently announced it will be teaming up with Google to make it easier for users to locate their lost items using their Android devices and Google Assistant. Android users will be able to use voice commands to ring the Tile attached to the missing item. Apple, which is hosting its iPhone event next week, has been found to be developing its own Tile competitor. Recently, code referencing a new tab labeled “Items” in iOS 13’s “Find My” app was also discovered, hinting at a forthcoming launch. Tile has grown to become one of the top makers of Bluetooth-powered lost item trackers on the market, with 22 million sold in 2018 and a user base that’s locating over 5 million items daily using its platform across 230 countries and territories around the world. Tile now has over 20 partnerships with the addition of Sennheiser, the company says.
