Tip: Use Google search to find your phone
Google’s Android Device Manager app is a great, free tool. Install it on any Android phone or tablet, and you can then use the Device Manager website to locate, ring, lock, or erase your phone.
Did you know there’s another way to do this?
Just open the Chrome browser and type in the omnibar, “Find my phone.” Alternately, go to Google search in any browser and type, “Find my phone.”
A card will appear at the very top of your Google search results. It might ask you to sign in again, in case you haven’t logged in for a while.
You can also try this trick using Google Now on another device (like a tablet) where you’re signed in.
It works just like the Android Device Manager website, and is just another cool feature baked into Google search.
