Losing the phone is the age-old obsession of many smartphone users. In many cases, the owner can still find the lost "mobile phone". Thanks to the support application if the crook does not close all connections or reset the device.

However, Google Search itself has a similar tool for Android smartphones. Therefore, you do not need to install any other application for this task. However, the tool may only be suitable for finding the smartphone that is forgetting somewhere, because it can not operate when the smartphone has shut down or is not connected to the internet.
Just type in the keyword "find my phone" to ask Google search your phone.

To use this feature is very simple, just go to Google Search, type the keyword "find my phone". Wait a minute for Google to connect to the smartphone, get location information and will appear in Google Maps on the screen.

@Jedi Knight Muse, you are so right about this Find my Mobile feature of smartphone. Its mandatory to be connected via internet. I think its a bit of a disadvantage that your phone should be connected to a WIFI or in mobile data if your going to track its location. What if the scenario is someone snatch it and you are just texting, so you are not using internet by the time someone stole it?
