Similarly, if you use the Google Assistant on a supported device or phone, you can ask it to find your stuff by saying, "OK Google, ask Tile to ring my keys". Framed with a champagne gold ring, Tile Style is satin white with a subtly-ridged texture, making it the ideal accessory to attach to valuable items.

The new "Pro" trackers sport upgraded hardware that promises a range of "up to" 200 feet, which is double the range of its existing devices and basically the maximum theoretical range promised by Bluetooth 4.0. "Both new products come with a convenient hole so that they can easily loop onto keyrings or bags".

Tile, makers of the Bluetooth "key finder" by the same name, has constantly improved its product line since debuting through a crowdfunding campaign several years back.

I tested the new Tiles using the old version of the app on an iPhone 7 as the update which supports the Tile Pro trackers wasn't available.

Also added is volume control and different ringtones for whatever suits you. The app will also visualize how close or far a user is from their lost item, so you're not wandering around a massive area trying to locate something. What you don't see are the millions of Tile community members helping keep your belongings safe.

You can use the Tile in reverse to find your phone by pressing the button to make your phone ring, even if it's on silent.

Priced at $35 each, or $60 for two, the Tile Slim and Tile Sport are a little more expensive than the Mate or the Slim.

Finally, and perhaps as the most helpful feature, Tile is making its products compatible with Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant. Now they're getting more stylish and more sporty, with Tile's new Pro range. Google Assistant users can enable the same functionalities and initiate these voice commands across Google Home, eligible Android phones and iPhones using the simple "Ok Google" phrase.

Tile has unveiled the latest devices in its growing range of Bluetooth trackers - the Tile Style and the Tile Sport.
