Google lets you search for your Android phone by simply typing ‘Find my phone’

Google has had a phone locating service in the Android Device Manager website for a while now. The company has now implemented the functionality within its search engine itself.

You can now simply search for ‘Find my phone’ on Google and a small window appears on the search page showing the map and your phone’s current or last known location. From there you can choose to give your phone a ring to help you find it if it’s around. You can also choose a different device from the drop down menu at the top if you have more than one Android devices. Clicking on the map will take you to the Android Device Manager website.

This is certainly convenient but unfortunately, it only works on the desktop browser now. So you can’t just grab someone’s phone and quickly search for yours if you happen to lose it. Hopefully, they will make it work in the mobile search as well.
