Ask Google where your phone is

Have you lost or forget where did you put Phone?
Instead of searching your phone everywhere, just ask Google where your phone is, and the search engine giant will answer you the exact place where you left your smartphone.

 Google has discharged another highlight to scan for your lost phone or tablet.



 Google unveiled a new feature on Wednesday that lets you search for your Android smartphone or tablet using the search engine on your desktop computer.


How does it work?

Log-in to the same Google account on your desktop computer’s browser that you use on your Android smartphone, but before that make sure you must have the latest version of the Google app installed on your smartphone. Touch Update if not updated.


Now type "Find my phone" into Google's search engine, and that’s it.


If you have more Device than one you can Choose which one your want to locate..




As soon as you press the enter or ALLOW button click Accept button , Google will contact and display a map that eventually shows you a location on the map that is accurate to a certain distance, as for example, the map showed me the location of my smartphone was accurate to 12 meters.








 However, what if your phone is not visible to you?

Google also offers you a Ring button on the map in order to pinpoint your phone.
You just need to click on Ring icon and the search engine giant will ring your smartphone at full volume for up to five minutes. Moreover, once you hand on it, simply press the power button to turn off the ringing.


Known as Android Device Manager can also help you locate and ring your Android devices. 
Tested :P


 Also in case your Android device has been stolen, this feature helps you to factory reset your device remotely and reset the password if the device is recovered or erase its data.

Press Set Lock and Erase  You  can change the screen lock and erase all data
