  2. Press on Find. It should say “Nearby” below if the Precision Finding feature is available.

Note that Ultra Wideband is not universally supported worldwide, therefore Precision Finding does not work in some countries. But keep in mind that the ‌AirPods Pro‌ 2 charging case comes with a built-in speaker, so you can also make it play a sound using ‌Find My‌ to make it easier to find.
