Say you misplaced your smartphone. Maybe you left it at work, or perhaps it’s at the gym in your locker. Or maybe it’s upstairs in your bedroom and you simply didn’t see it under a pile of laundry. Rather than freak out running around from place to place, type the following phrase into a Google search box on any computer or mobile device on which you’re logged in:
“Where’s my phone?”
Pretty straightforward, no? Typing that phrase will instantly launch Google’s phone-finder tool and you’ll see your phone’s location on a map. Did it turn out to be upstairs in a bedroom like we said? There’s also a feature in Google’s phone-finder that will let you set the phone to full volume and make the ringer play so it can be located more easily.
