The Google Play Store is filled with apps made primarily to find lost Android devices. Even Google itself has released its own handy Android Device Manager, yet most people seem to be unaware that such feature exists, as they go as far as paying premium fees for apps to locate their phones via GPS.
The good news is that with a simple Google search, owners can now easily find their lost Android phones.
Simply typing “find my phone” on Google will bring up a mini-map on the search results. Once located, the map will be able to locate the device wherever its owner has misplaced it.
A few restrictions exist, though.
The phone must have the latest Google app version installed, not to mention the browser where the search is being performed must be logged into the Google account alongside with that of the lost phone.
Once the phone has been located, the user will be able to see it on the map and even force it ring an alarm.
