The system is said to make use of the Google Play Services for users to find their and other people’s lost devices. Google Play Services is an important part of Google Mobile Services (GMS) that includes the Google apps.

For the uninitiated, Google already has a Find My Device app that lets people find lost devices. But, the difference over here is that the existing app only finds the devices that are linked to a user’s Google account.

The system in development will help people find others’ devices too. It is most likely to work like Apple’s Find My. But, is speculated that the Android counterpart could be restricted to smartphones and tablets, as opposed to the Find My that works with a variety of devices.

Since a majority of Android users have the Google Play Services, it is highly expected to reach a number of users whenever it plans to arrive. However, not much is known about Google’s Find My Device system.

If this turns out to be true, Google would be copying yet another major iOS feature. To recall, it recently introduced its version of AirDrop, which is called Nearby Share. The feature allows people to easily share files with others in a jiffy.
