Google activates a service to locate your smartphone from your computer

Losing your cell phone is a question that can get us to lose sleep.

Today, devices have become our best ally, and we store too sensitive and important information. Inspired by the "Find my iPhone" Apple service, Google has activated a similar tool that allows the user to locate the terminal through the browser from your computer.

Según ha informado el gigante tecnológico en su perfil de Google+, una nueva actualización para la “app” del buscador permite localizarlo a través del ordenador. El funcionamiento de esta nueva actualización es algo tan sencillo que muchos usuarios ya lo han puesto a prueba en alguna ocasión. Si el móvil está cerca, el usuario solo tiene que buscarlo desde un ordenador. Tras realizar esta operación el móvil sonará, como si se tratase de una llamada.

Another feature is the ability to trace the route through Google Maps to reach the terminal. To use this new feature, users must have an Android phone and install the latest version of the Google application and type "find my phone" in the search box and "app" will sound the "smartphone" while Maps will display your location.

Thus, it follows that the search is permanently locating terminals that are enabled with Google credentials.
