Besides, Kuba also noted that Google would release this tracker in multiple color options, and like Apple’s AirTags, it will also have an onboard speaker so that users can easily locate it or their missing device with the help of sound.
However, there is not much information about its feature, but Google’s tracker tag is expected to provide more features than Apple’s AirTags because AirTag is only limited to iPhones, and Google’s Android has command over the major smartphone market.
