Lost your Android phone? No problem, just Google it

You’ve long been able to use Android Device Manager to locate a lost smartphone, but Google just made it a whole lot easier. Next time you can’t remember where you left it, simply Google find my phone. Provided you’re logged-in, Google will display the phone’s location on a map and give you the option to call it.

You’ll still need to use Device Manager to lock or erase the phone if someone has walked off with it, but this is a quick and convenient method when you’ve just forgotten where in your home you put it down.

Google also recently added Android Wear support to Device Manager, enabling you to locate your phone from your smartwatch.
