This has been talked about for a while now, with clues popping up in the developer console of Fast Pairbut now, thanks to the leaker Kuba Wojciechowskiit would be increasingly certain that Google would be working on a range of tracker designed to compete with the celebrities AirTags Of Apple.

Apple’s AirTags have certainly revolutionized the way we find our smartphone or temporarily lost objects. In an attempt to compete with the Cupertino multinational, Google has significantly strengthened the Find My Device app for Android, yet it also seems to be working on a tracker similar to AirTags.

To do this, Google has already somewhat prepared the ground in its high-end smartphones, including ultra-broadband connectivity (Ultrawide band o UWB) in its Pixel 6 Pro and Pixel 7 Pro.

In fact, according to the leaker Kuba Wojciechowski, Google is planning an AirTags-style tacker whose code name, at the moment, would be Grogu, a tribute to the Star Wars universe series, The Mandalorian. Leading the development team would be that of Google Nest.

Just like AirTags, Google’s Grogu should be equipped with a loudspeaker, useful both as a privacy measure and for localization via acoustic signal. Precisely because of this particularity, the other code name for the Google tracker should be “Groguaudio”.

Also if Apple launched the app Find Mythe Mountain View multinational should launch the equivalent Finder Networkthus allowing different devices to communicate with each other.

Currently it is not yet possible to establish a release date for Google-signed trackers. However we can imagine a time frame: considering that between the end of 2023 and the beginning of 2024 the company should launch the new Nest Audio, nothing prevents us from hypothesizing that, taking advantage of that very window, Google can surprise the public with its Grogu.
