Lost your Android phone? Just Google it!

Lost your Android phone? Just Google it!

While there have been several 3rd party apps available for some time, Google have finally launched a new way for Android users to find their lost phones. As long as the Google App installed, all you need to do is log into your Google account at a PC and type 'find my phone' in the search engine. It will then display the location and even allow you to call the phone so you can find it. It's worth noting that the feature will not lock the phone if you think it has been stolen, but that functionality is available if you use the Android Device Manager app.
