Are you the one who misplaces your phone in some stupid place and go wild searching for it? Then this is for you! Yes you can use Google to find your Android phone. Just type the words ‘find my phone’ into any Google search bar from your computer and in seconds Google will locate your device on a map and give you the option to make it ring.
While Android Device Manager already exists to help find lost phones and tablets, just getting to your account’s ADM menu often requires a search of its own. But Find My Phone is as simple as a web query. Unfortunately, Find My Phone does not let you to lock or erase your device when it is stolen, you will still need Android Device Manager to do that.
There are some limitations: your phone must have the latest version of Android’s main Google app installed, and your browser must be logged into the same Google account as your phone is, but it’s a much simpler way to find your phone than going through the Android Device Manager, which many Android users may not even be aware of.
