How to use Google search to track your lost Android phone


We’ve all lost smartphones at some point, here and there in our homes, now and again in the auto and some of the time out in the wild unknown. Presently as opposed to seeking all over the place to track it down, you can depend on Google for help.

Google feature lets you find your Android phone or tablet using Google’s search engine on your PC, as long as you meet the right criteria. Your Android phone should have the Google App installed, Now cards enabled, Web & App activity enabled, Google Now notifications turned on and finally, location reporting should be set to “High accuracy” mode.

At First, use your computer browser to log in to the Google account you have set up on your phone. Now type  “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’ll eventually see a location on the map that’s accurate enough to give you a sense of where you left the phone. To ring 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.
