Want to find your lost Android device? Just Google it!

We all have been there, and we all know the pain of losing our phone! That moment of ultimate anxiety when you just can’t find your phone and all sort of thoughts cross your mind about your personal data and what not. I myself have suffered through such mental turmoil when I lost my Android smartphone on a vacation. But Google has finally realized our agony and has come out with an amazing solution to find our phone.

Find my phone google

Simply type “find my phone” in the Google search bar and make sure that you’re logged into your Gmail account. As soon as you start the search, Google will show you the map and point at the map location wherever your mobile is at that very moment. Not only that, it also provides “Ring” option, which can enable you to call on your phone instantly in order to make the finding process easier.

The option is just to locate your phone, but for more serious actions (such as wiping your data remotely) you would still require the good old Android Device Manger. If you only want to track the location of your phone then just Google it!
