Samsung's SmartThings Find service officially connects its 200 millionth device
Samsung's SmartThings Find network has only been around worldwide since October 2020. Despite this, the OEM has now confirmed that it has seen its 200 millionth node, suggesting that it is now made up of devices of this number (at least).
The OEM's in-house alternative to other services such as Find My or Tile works over wireless connections such as Bluetooth LE and ultra-wideband (UWB) to help users avoid the loss or theft of their missing possessions. Its UI's latest updates also contains competitive features such as the ability to track down objects in augmented reality (AR) or the detection of unknown and potentially unwanted tags.
On that note, the rapid rise of SmartThings Find is likely thanks in part to the launch of the inaugural Galaxy SmartTag and SmartTag+. They augment the network of connections between the Samsung-brand ecosystem of smartphones, laptops, accessories and wearables with those for keys, luggage and any other personal item one can stick a smart tag on.
