Does my Chipolo work with Google’s Find My Device app?

Expected read time: 3 min

That depends on which Chipolo you have!

Not all Chipolos are compatible with every finder app. You can connect your Chipolo to one of 3 different apps, depending on what model of the Chipolo finder you have.

If you bought your Chipolo before May 2023 and are wondering if it will work with Google’s Find My Device app, the answer is no.

Is it possible to upgrade the Chipolo to use a different Android or iOS app?

Again the answer is no, different Chipolo finders cannot be updated to use two different apps. Each Chipolo can only work with the app it was initially connected to.

Do you use your Chipolo to find your misplaced keys around the house? Then you probably own one of the colorful regular Chipolos!

How can you be sure? If you use the Chipolo app to ring your misplaced keys or wallet, then the Chipolo finder you have is a regular one that works both with Android phones and iPhones - but only on the Chipolo app!
