At the conference I/O Google has announced a new app Find My Device designed to locate lost smartphones. The program is now available for download in Google Play.
Find My Device is analogous to the service Find My iPhone. This app is designed to find lost or stolen smartphones. Users can start a call on the device, lock, and remotely erase important information, or look on the map where now there is a gadget.
If the user cannot find the phone in the apartment, then Find My Device activates the ringer on the highest volume even if the device is installed in librariile. This will allow you to quickly find the device. If a mobile device is lost somewhere on the street or in the restaurant, its current location can be viewed on the map.
