Google recently rolled out a quick new way to locate misplaced Android smartphones. A simple Google search for "Find My Phone" from a PC can find a lost phone, force it to ring at full volume, and even position it on a map. The tool requires device owners to sign in to their Google account in the browser and they must also have the latest version of the Google app installed on their phone. For people with multiple Android devices, a drop-down menu lets you specify which device you'd like to find. Users who want to lock or wipe their phone will need to have Android Device Manager activated on their handset. "Find My Phone" is free to use.

COOL! never again will I worry about leaving my phone on silent under a couch or bed!!
So simple too. I was able to see all three of my devices within seconds. Granted I'm right here with them, but it was still cool. 🤣
