Ever since Google launched Android Device Manager to help people find their lost device, Google says that it has helped nearly 30 million owners reconnect with a missing device. And now the company is expanding its usefulness a bit by adding support for Android Wear.
Today, via the Official Android Blog, Google announced that it’s rolling out support for Android Wear in the Android Device Management toolbox. That means if you need to find a lost smartphone, you just need to ask your smartwatch to help you find it. That can be handled either via the “Find my phone” option in the Smart menu, or by simply telling your Android Wear smartwatch “OK, Google. Start. Find my phone.”
Once either one of those options have been implemented, the smartphone in question will begin ringing on its loudest setting, which will hopefully help you locate it.
The new feature is rolling out now to all Android Wear devices, and it should be completed over the next few weeks. What do you think of the new feature?
