Samsung has officially launched SmartThings Find, a device-tracking solution roughly similar to Tile, as well as Apple and Google's respective Find My services. "SmartThings Find uses Bluetooth Low Energy and ultra-wideband (UWB) technologies to help people find select Galaxy smartphones, tablets, smartwatches and earbuds." Uniquely, it can utilize the UWB feature of the Galaxy Note20 Ultra and Galaxy Z Fold2 to help you find lost devices quickly using an AR interface. It also supports common features of competing platforms such as offline device finding and secure, private crowdsourced device finding. It can help you navigate to lost devices on a map, and, when nearby, "ring" those devices. SmartThings Find is available within the SmartThings app on phones and tablets running Android 8 or later, and can be used to find Galaxy phones and tablets, as well as Galaxy Watch devices running Tizen 5.5 or later, and Galaxy Buds+ and Galaxy Buds Live.
