Does Ping make a sound or noise when locating?

Depends.  If you are connected to your device via Bluetooth, meaning you are within 35 feet of it, such as trying to find it in your home or office, we are working on giving you the ability to have the device "ping" or buzz so you can easily locate it.

If you are trying to locate the device outside of that range, such as having it attached to a person, we do not make a noise as we found this was distracting for the person wearing the device (we don't think you want your child "buzzing" while sitting in school :))

To find the device when connected to Bluetooth

When you are connected to Bluetooth (roughly 30-35 feet from the device) and tap on a device, you will see the blue rings in the bottom right instead of the directions icon.  Tapping on the rings will take you to a proximity search and give you the option to play a tune on the device.
