Find My Device 3.0 Update: Google launches Redesigned Icon

Find My Device was launched by Google a few years ago as an extra layer of security, allowing owners of Android smartphones to locate their devices in case of loss or erase all data in theft or robbery situations, thereby preventing third parties from accessing sensitive data stored on the device.

As discovered by the 9to5Google portal in mid-June, the developer is working on improvements to the Android device location and remote control platform, having implemented a redesign of the Find My logo. The restyled look replaces the green marker with an icon resembling a radar.

It appears that this change in the logo may indicate a shift in the company’s plans for its device tracking service. Google intends to expand Find My Device to more devices beyond smartphones, including watches and other wearable accessories, creating an integrated network.

According to information from Mishaal Rahman, a developer known for his accurate predictions about the Android world, the source code of Find My mentions a new feature called “Lost,” which, when activated, prompts the user to send a notification to the owner as soon as it connects to a wireless network, indicating that it has been found by someone.

Check out the comparison between the logos below:

Find My Device 3.0 was supposed to have been announced by Google earlier this year, but the new generation of the service was postponed by the company to allow Apple more time to implement the Find My Device unknown tracker alert for iOS users, Android’s rival system.
