I was formerly an iPhone user and recently switched over to a Samsung device. However, I still have my AirPods from before. I know that since I am using my AirPods with an android, I will lose some features like the automatic pause when the pods are removed from the ear. But I'm also wondering, since I originally had the AirPods connected and registered to my iCloud account, when my AirPods are now connected to my Samsung Android device, can I still go to the icloud.com/find link on my Android to use the "Find My" feature to track my lost AirPods?

Since these are now connecting exclusively for audio via Bluetooth (generic headphone profile), any additional features, location tracking included, would require additional software (i.e. an AirPods app for Android). So unfortunately the answer to this one would be 'no'.

How do I find lost airpods with an Android device?

I recently transitioned to Android from iPhone, but I still would like to use my AirPods. I know of third party apps like Assistant Trigger and MaterialPods that can allow me to use the AirPods' features on the Android, but is there a way I can find my airpods if they become lost? I'm a little bit scared to use them because of the possibility of losing them. :( I was told from a previous forum that I cannot use the icloud.com/find on Android web browser to find the airpods on Android.

Unfortunately, nope. You can use automation apps like IFTTT or Tasker, or maybe even Routines on Assistant or Bixby (not sure if these have that kind of option, but I for sure know Tasker would... it's just not as easy to program/use as everything else). Basically you'd send the location info somewhere every time your headphones are connected/disconnected from the phone, but that's pretty much your only option unless you get headphones that support said feature on Android (like Samsung's Galaxy Buds)

got it, thanks for the information! I actually have a Samsung device with SmartThings, could I use SmartThings Find with the 1st generation airpod pros?
