Google has confirmed plans to make changes to its Nest smart speakers and displays to allow iPhone users to find their phone using voice commands. Currently, this feature only works for Android phones.
The find-my-phone feature on Google smart speakers and display will work even the iPhone is in silent or Do Not Disturb mode. It will ring a cheerful tune when asked to find a phone.
To make the feature work, users have to set it up with their devices by linking their primary contact number to their Google account. They then need to turn on the Voice Match option for their Nest smart devices. The Voice Match option will ensure that only the owner of the device can use the feature to find their device.
The feature is included in Google's Spring update and will be rolled out in the United Kingdom, United States and Australia. Other features included in the update are support for new smart home automation setups that can automatically trigger at sunrise and sunset.
