    How to use Google to find your lost Android phone

    We've all lost our mobile phone at one point or another -- sometimes in our homes, sometimes in the car and sometimes out in the wild unknown. Now instead of searching everywhere to track it down, you can rely on Google for help.

    A new feature unveiled on Wednesday lets you search for your Android phone or tablet using Google's search engine on your PC, as long as you meet the right criteria.

    Here's how it works:

    1. First, you have to make sure you're logged in to the same Google account on your PC's browser that you use on your phone. You must also be sure to have the latest version of the Google app installed on your phone.

    2. Now type the phrase "find my phone" into Google's search engine on your PC. In response, Google displays a map that attempts to zero in on the location of your device. Give it at least several seconds, and you should eventually see a location on the map that's accurate to a certain distance.
    And Done, You found where your phone exactly is.

    For example, the map told me that the location of my device was accurate to 24 meters.

    OK, that's fine. But what if your phone is lost somewhere in your home? Sorry, but Google won't tell you what room it's in.

    You Can Ring, Lock Or can Erase Data of your phone.

    To pinpoint your device:

    Click the icon or link for Ring on the map. Your device will ring at full volume for up to five minutes. Once you find it, simply click the power button to turn off the ringing.
