Second-generation Pixel Buds owners can now use Find my Device to find their pair in case they get lost. According to 9to5Google, users started seeing the Pixel Buds they connected to their account in the Find my Device app on Android and on the web. As long as they are logged in, they will be able to see the model of the device to which it was “last seen logged in”, as well as the time and date. This information is displayed on a map with a pinned location of the pair.
The post first spotted the integration of Find my Device during an APK teardown in June. Although it appears to have started to make its way to users, Pixel Buds will not yet show up in search when asking ‘find a device’. The latest Buds login details won’t appear in the Pixel Buds app’s “Find a device” menu either, at least for now.
When Google released the updated Pixel Buds earlier this year, we were impressed with the intuitive touch controls, comfort, and smart features of true wireless headphones. It cost $ 179 at launch in the US, but has since been available in more countries and in more colors. Some users have reported Bluetooth issues that cut audio while using headphones, but Google acknowledged the problem and promised a software fix.
