Google TV Is Making It Easier to Find Your Remote





If you have kids like I do, finding your TV remote may be a daily fight. Now Google TV is reportedly working on bringing a Find My Remote feature to newer Google TVs and Android TVs. This includes the new Walmart Onn 4K Pro that already has this device.

According to Google’s latest update, in Android TV 14 with Google TV, Find My Remote is coming to more devices going forward as was first spotted by Android Authority.

When Find my remote is enabled, you can play a sound to locate your Google TV remote if it’s misplaced.

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

This feature is already available on other devices like Roku, which makes it easy to find missing devices. The catch right now is Google is making this a physical button on the streaming player not a fix via the Find My Device app on Android.

Hopefully, more Google TV device makers will make this feature available going forward.
