Android users can now Google Search to find their lost phone

Google this week has made it easier for Android smartphone and tablet users to find a lost device.  Googling "find my phone" will bring up a map with the last known location of handset, providing the user has signed into the same Google Account on both.

Users also have the option to remotely call the device, which will ring at volume – even if it is set to silent or vibrate. Provided the phone is connected to a wireless network, it can be dialled through Find My Phone without the need for a SIM card.

Clicking the provided map will load up the Android Device Manager, which also gives users the ability to remotely lock or erase their phone or tablet.
