Comcast's Xfinity customers can locate lost objects on TV screen with Tile app

Friday 27 April 2018 | 13:18 CET | News
Comcast entered into a new partnership with Tile that allows Xfinity customers to use their Xfinity X1 Voice Remote to locate lost devices tagged with Tile's Bluetooth tracker and see the results of their search on their television. Tile Bluetooth trackers can be attached to any item and can be found using the corresponding Tile app. If the item is misplaced, lost or stolen, X1 customers can say, "Xfinity Home where are my keys?", "Xfinity Home find my purse", or "Xfinity Home locate Sam's backpack" to display the last known location and address of the missing Tile on their TV screen.
