Google recently announced the date of its annual developer conference, Google I/O 2024. Like every year, Google will introduce a new Android version this year too, which will be named Android 15. According to media reports, after this update, users will be able to track their mobile even after it is switched off.

The Find My Device system on Android phones has limitations. According to an Android Police report, Google may launch a new Finding API, which will help in searching for products even after the device is disconnected.

Find My Device limitations:

Currently, the Find My Device network can only track active Android and Wear OS devices. However, this will be improved in the future and devices will be able to be located even without an internet connection. If this feature is introduced then it will be very useful for many people.
