You can now search for your lost Android phone using Google


Just when we thought that Google couldn’t make owning an Android phone any better of an experience than it already is, they go ahead and do it anyway (Oh dearest Google, you great being you)

Today Google has announced that Android users will now have the ability to be able to use their computers and stalk (I mean search) their mobile devices. Even better, doing so is as simple as pulling up your web browser, assuming that you are logged in with your Gmail account, and typing in “find my phone”. After that, the computer will pull up a map that will show you the exact location of your phone, or if it couldn’t find it, allow you to make it ring at full volume for 5 minutes. Nifty, right? Now if only Google could make finding our keys simpler too..
