Google’s second-generation Assistant headphones this month are expected to go on sale in more colors and get a software update. The company has yet to detail the contents of the new firmware version, but Pixel Buds are now showing up in the Find My Device app.
Signing in to Find My Device on Android or the web today lists your connected Pixel Buds. This integration currently identifies the phone to which they were “last seen logged in” and the time / date. This information is displayed on a map with the pin having a generic headset icon on a gray background. The device does not yet appear in Google search under the query “find a device”.
During the Fast Pair demo last year, Google showed that it can also see battery life and quick decoupling. Meanwhile, this location integration doesn’t show up in the Pixel Buds “app” under the “Find a device” menu, which currently only lets you play a ringing sound.
These additional features may require the update to come. As of this afternoon, most Pixel Buds owners see the headphones in the Find My Device app.
