Google to launch AirTag clone, grogu, to track devices
TECHDIGEST – Google will be the recent Big-Tech corporation to release a Bluetooth tracker, following in the footsteps of Tile, Apple, and Samsung.
This was reported by Android researcher, Kuba Wojciechowski, who disclosed ‘grogu’ on his official Twitter handle.
Wojciechowski spotted code for a Google first-party Bluetooth tracker codenamed ‘Grogu.’
I have recently found references that show that Google’s working on support for locator tags in Fast Pair – see the linked thread for more info. https://t.co/8tvlWaHQpv
Now it turns out Google’s working on a first party tracker too!

Ripples Nigeria gathered that grogu would reportedly include an onboard speaker, as well as support for Bluetooth Low Energy and ultra-wideband (UWB).
Wojciechowski disclosed that Google is working with chipset makers to help them support Fast Pair.
Although there aren’t any specifics yet, we may anticipate that Google’s tracker will function similarly to its rivals.
