With the Google I/O event last week, it seems that the availability of Android TV 14 has moved one step closer to appearing on devices.

In the update, as spotted by Android Authority, there is a reference to the new “Find my Remote” feature.

The strings in Android TV 14 with Google TV state: “When the ‘Find my Remote’ feature is enabled, you can play a sound to locate your Google TV remote if it’s misplaced.”

There is a button on Google TV that you can press to play a sound on the remote for 30 seconds. This works only with remotes supported by Google TV. To stop the sound, press any button on the remote.

Since this is integrated into Android TV 14, it means that future Google TV devices will be able to easily incorporate “Find my Remote,” assuming the included remote has the necessary hardware.

Specifically, the remote will need some sort of speaker to emit a sound when the button that activates “Find my Remote” is pressed. Google says the button will be located on the device itself.
