It's easy to find your Tile tracker devices using Amazon Sidewalk

Tile makes some of the best Bluetooth trackers, and using them in conjunction with Amazon's Sidewalk network expands the number of other users that can help find your lost things. Setting everything up isn't really intuitive, but it's also not difficult. All you need is to have Sidewalk enabled in your Alexa app (this is done by default for most of us) and a Tile account, then you're halfway there. We'll show you how to connect Tile to Amazon sidewalk below.

How to enable Tile in Sidewalk's Find My network

  1. Make sure you have the Alexa app and Tile app installed on your phone.
  2. Inside the Tile app, open the settings menu.
  3. Tap for the Smart Home Hub settings entry.
  4. Link your Tile app to Amazon Alexa by tapping the top section. If you have already linked your accounts, you can skip to step number 8.

  5. After linking your accounts, the Alexa app will open to the Tile skill page. Tap ENABLE TO USE to install the skill.

  6. If you haven't already linked your Tile account to Alexa, you'll be forwarded to Tile's website. Log in with your Tile account, not your Amazon account.
  7. Once logged in successfully, tap the Close button to continue.

  8. Grant the Tile skill permission to use your device address and save your settings by tapping the SAVE PERMISSIONS button at the bottom of the page.

  9. On the next screen, tap the DISCOVER DEVICES button. You'll be prompted that this could take up to 45 seconds.

To find your Tile trackers, you can ask Alexa to find them by name or use the Alexa app. To do this, choose the Devices icon at the bottom of the Alexa app. Amazon's Sidewalk network has a multitude more users than the Tile network, so your chances of finding your stuff are far greater.

If you decide to unlink your Tile and Alexa accounts, you must go through these steps again to enable the Tile skill.

Technics EAH-AZ60 review: Contending in stunning fashion

Technics serves notice that everyone should notice these earbuds. Technics ventured into the wireless earbuds category to go after the big dogs in the race. Think of the likes of Sony, Bose, and Sennheiser on sound quality, as well as the best you can find on design and functionality. It's a combination that comes at a price, but if done right, it gets easier to justify spending more. That's the case Technics makes with its EAH-Z60 earbuds. Its newest pair aims to take what the company has done in the past and make it even better. The results are easy to like and are significant enough to consider them as serious contenders.

PS5 restocks: Here are the latest PS5 stock updates & how to find one

PS5 stock is selling out fast, so be sure to have your credit card ready. Looking to buy a PS5 ? Well, so are millions of other people. It doesn't help that stock levels remain really tight, even nearly a year after its launch. Every time a retailer puts stock up for sale, it sells out super quickly. The longest we here at Android Central have seen PS5s stay in stock is between 15 to 20 minutes (often just a few minutes, though). That's also at random times, so finding a PS5 is a truly challenging task. Sony warned it will be hard to find stock throughout the year and well into 2022, but retailers promise more are coming and that Sony has secured additional semiconductor chips to make them. In our PS5 review, we called the system a technical marvel with a groundbreaking controller. And after spending a few months with the PS5, it's nearly impossible to go back to the PS4. Everything about the PS5 is better , from the games to the DualSense haptic feedback . So you'
