Your Android Wear watch can now help you find a misplaced phone
Google today announced a new update to the Android Device Manager that allows Android Wear users to track and find a misplaced phone from their wrist, and it’ll be available on all watches in the coming weeks.
Android Device Manager has long been helping Android users track and find lost or stolen Android devices. But now that it supports Android Wear, that task has become even easier.
“Misplaced your Android phone? No problem!” Google says. “Android Wear connects your phone to your wrist, and together with Android Device Manager, you can make sure it stays that way.”
To take advantage of this feature, simply say “Ok, Google. Start find my phone,” into your watch, or tap on the “Find my phone” option in the menu. You probably won’t see this just yet, though.
Google says the new feature will be rolling out to all Android Wear users in “the next few weeks.” In the meantime, just try not to lose your Androids.
