Google Working on a Feature to Locate Lost or Stolen Phones When Turned Off



Pixel Power-off Finder

Google is reportedly working on a new feature for its “Find My Device” service that will enable users to locate their lost or stolen Android devices even when they are turned off. Pixel Power-off Finder, the feature will be similar to Apple’s Find My network and will allow users to locate their devices even when they are out of range of Wi-Fi or Bluetooth.

The new feature is being developed using a Hardware Abstraction Layer (HAL) named, which has been discovered in Google’s source code. The code suggests that precomputed Finger Network keys will be sent to the device’s Bluetooth chip, which will remain active even when the phone is turned off.

Will the Pixel 6 or 7 Support the Pixel Power-off Finder and Grogu?

According to sources, Google is planning to create a network of Android devices with Ultra Wideband support for its new AirTag-like locator tag called “grogu.” However, it is unclear if the upcoming Pixel 6 or 7 will support this feature, as it requires special hardware for it to work.

The Pixel Power-off Finder is expected to provide a significant boost to the “Find My Device” service, as it will help users locate their devices even when they are turned off or out of range. This could be especially useful in situations where a phone has been stolen, as it will allow the user to track its location and recover it.

It remains to be seen when the Pixel Power-off Finder will be released to the public, but Google’s continued investment in the “Find My Device” service shows that it is committed to providing its users with the best possible experience when it comes to locating their lost or stolen devices.

android 14 beta 5

The release of Google’s Android 14 has been much awaited. The latest buzz suggested that it would be unveiled on the same day as the Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro announcement on October 4. While this was initially just a rumor the latest information seems to add some weight to it.

Canadian carrier Telus has provided a clue. They listed software update start dates for the devices they sell. For all Pixel devices beginning with the Pixel 4a the name “Android U” was set for an October 4 rollout.

The term Android U stands for Android Upside Down Cake. This is the inside name for Android 14. Interestingly this detail on Telus’s list was later removed. This change might be because Google noticed the details circulating online and asked Telus to take the information down. This is just a guess. It’s not clear what really happened. There’s a small chance that the initial information was not correct.

But there’s not much waiting left. In less than one day everything will be clear. If Android 14 is set to release on October 4 it is likely that Google will announce it at its big event. So everyone should watch out for that. We will keep you updated on any new developments.

Update: has updated their article, saying that the information has been removed from the Telus listing as of now.
