Lost your Android phone? Just Google to find it

If you misplace your Android phone in the car or leave it somewhere around the house, search engine giant Google can now help locate the smartphone.

Using Google search on a desktop, users need to type in 'Find my phone' and an approximate location of the device will be shown, Google said in a blog post.

"We've all been there -- you've searched under your car seat, tossed around the sofa cushions and you still can't find your phone. If you know where your computer is, you can now ask Google to find your Android phone from your desktop," it said.





The users just need to ensure that they have the latest version of the Google App on their registered device.

The Android Device Manager will allow users to ring their device, using which they can locate their device. The phone will ring for five minutes, once the ring option is chosen.

Users would also have to ensure that the smartphone's location services are on so that Google can locate it.

The feature also allows users to lock and erase data off the device in case of theft or loss of the handset.

However, there are other apps available in the market to track and erase data remotely if required.

resources and help you maintain a cohesive design language and brand identity.


While responsive design is all the rage in web design circles these days, it’s not always the best solution for campaign-specific landing pages.



To illustrate this point, let’s ask a question:

Will users book European travel from their phones?

While we should always test assumptions like these, logic tells us this is not very likely. So if device
context tells us the user is landing on the page from mobile, what should we do?

We may want to build unique mobile landing pages that fe…
