Google today unveiled the long-anticipated Android Device Manager service, which will roll out to users later this month.
The Android version of Apple's Find My iPhone, Google's Device Manager is intended to help users find a missing or stolen device.
Dropped your Galaxy S 4 between the couch cushions? Just ring your phone at maximum volume to find it, even if you left it in silent mode. Clumsily forgot your Nexus 7 at the restaurant you were lunching in? Use the Device Manager online map to locate the tablet in real time.
"While losing your phone can be stressful, Android Device Manager can help you keep your data from ending up in the wrong hands," Android product manager Benjamin Poiesz said in a blog post.
