Through Google Assistant

First of all, fix up the Tile with Google Assistant. Open the Google Home app and click on Add and then on Set up device. Now, on the setup page, search for ‘Works with Google.’ Now, click on ‘Have something already set up.’ 

Now under the Add new menu, choose Tile. Sign up with Tile by adding the login details. Now the users can ask Google Assistant to search the items. To make the Tile ring, ask ‘Hey Google, Ring my keys.’ On the other side, if you want to know the location, ask, ‘Hey Google, find my keys.’ You can even ask, ‘Hey Google, find my keys.’ After that, Google Assistant will tell the location as well as the time of last seen. 

Through Amazon Alexa

To setup up Tile, open the Alexa app. Now, you need to click on the menu icon, which is located in the upper left corner. Then click on Skills & Games. After that, you will find a search bar. Now search for “Tile.” Click on Tile and then on “Enable.” 

Now, you need to put your Tile login detail for login. Once done, you are ready to use the Tile tags. When asking about the Tiles to Amazon Alexa, you need to say, “Alexa, ask tile to….” Every time you are making any request to Alexa. However, one can use similar commands for Alexa that are for Google Assistant. Want to make Tile to ring? Just speak, “Alexa, ask Tile to ring the keys.”
