Last year, both Google and Apple announced that they had collaborated to address unwanted tracking through AirTags and other tracking devices and to work on suitable specifications for this purpose.

Then, after a few months, Google rolled out unwanted tracking alerts on devices running Android 6.0 and later versions and also hindered the launch of its Find My Device network until Apple implemented similar protection measures against unwanted tracking in iOS.

It took a very long time, but now it seems we have finally arrived. Google has sent an email to some Android users informing them that the long-awaited Find My Device network will be launched within days.

The email says “in three days” specifically, which may mean it will be activated on Sunday, or more likely, next Monday, April 8th.

If you’re wondering what prompted this somewhat impromptu rollout, it seems that iOS 17.5 is finally adding the anti-unwanted tracking protections that were first discussed with Google in 2023.
