GA-97 was a servant droid that was aligned with the Resistance during their conflict with the First Order and plugged into their intelligence network. The droid was spending time in the castle of the pirate Maz Kanata on the planet Takodana, when the smuggler Han Solo led a group of three fugitives from the First Order into the structure. Kanata, an old friend of Solo's, recognized the smuggler shortly after he entered and cried out to him, causing everyone in the castle to turn their attention to the new-comers, including GA-97 and those seated at the fighting droid table he was sat against. After the crowd lost interest, GA-97 turned his attention to the Dengue sisters, a group of three Culisettos gambling on a table nearby.
The sisters' game was interrupted when the dismembered arm of the junk dealer Unkar Plutt landed on their table, having been tossed by the Wookiee Chewbacca after he tore it off defending the scavenger Rey, one of Solo's companions. The sisters tossed the arm away absently and continued with the gambling, but GA-97's attention was drawn to Rey and then her companion, the astromech droid BB-8. Recognizing the astromech as a missing Resistance droid, an internal sequence was activated inside GA-97 which triggered him to send out a compressed signal that was bounced around, coded, decoded, encrypted, and then sent into deep space. The signal was then picked up by the protocol droid C-3PO in the Resistance base on the planet D'Qar. Overjoyed, C-3PO relayed the message that BB-8 was on Takodana to General Leia Organa, who then left for Takodana to collect the droid.
Before the Resistance could arrive, the occupants of Kanata's castle were drawn outside by the sound of the First Order's Starkiller Base firing at the Hosnian system. In the castle's courtyard they stood and watched as it destroyed the whole star system, and the Galactic Senate of the New Republic with it. Almost immediately after the horrific spectacle was over, the First Order attacked the castle and quickly destroyed it. Those that survived the destruction were spared when the Resistance arrived and fought off the First Order's troops, driving them offworld. GA-97 presumably then returned to the New Republic on D'Quar.
