San Francisco: Google has been said to offer Google Assistant with a feature that will enable iPhone users to locate their lost iPhone. Android users have been using this feature for a long time. According to the MacRumors report, it will have the same features as Apple’s On Find My System, which will be introduced for the iPhone.
Smart speaker will be needed
The report said only those users who will have Google Assistant supported smart speakers and Google Home App for iOS will be able to take advantage of this feature. Only then will they be able to locate their lost devices. With the help of Google smart home devices, when asked, O Google, Find My Phone, only then it will be alerted. After this, Google Home App will send an iOS critical alert on iPhone.
Will need special permission from apple
Apple will have the ability to use this alert sent as special notifications, which can be braked through Silence Mode or Do Not Disturb to ensure that it has reached the user. Apps with critical alerts will need to get special approval from Apple and it seems that Google has achieved this approval.
