    Samsung launches SmartThings Find to help you quickly find Galaxy devices

    During the Galaxy Note 20 and the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra launch, Samsung showcased a new SmartThings feature that lets users quickly find Galaxy devices through an app. The company has now officially launched the SmartThings Find feature, and it comes as a part of the SmartThings app. It can also find devices when they're offline.

    The SmartThings Find feature works on Galaxy devices running Android 8 (or newer). It uses Bluetooth LE (Low Energy) and UWB (Ultra-Wideband) technologies to help you find select Galaxy earbuds, smartphones, smartwatches, and tablets by ringing them. After a quick registration process, you can even find an individual earbud when it gets lost. The AR feature lets you find the exact location of a lost device via the camera's viewfinder and a map overlay.

    Even if the device is offline, you can securely opt in to let other Galaxy users find your lost device. Once the device is offline for 30 minutes, it starts transmitting a Bluetooth LE signal to nearby devices. Once you report your device as missing via SmartThings Find, it gets added into Samsung's database. Opted in Galaxy products can then find misplaced devices.

    The SmartThings Find feature works even better on Galaxy devices that have the UWB feature. Samsung will also expand the capabilities of SmartThings Find to let it find tracking tags. These tracking tags can be attached to your favorite objects, and not just Galaxy devices.
