After¬†the long-anticipation ¬†,today Google has been unveiled Android Device Manager service, which will expected to be 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.
In the event that your device cannot be recovered, or has been stolen, you can easily erase all data before someone else gets their hands on your bank records and grocery list.
The new service will be available later this month on the Web for devices running Android 2.2 or higher; users must be logged into their Google account for access. An Android app will also be available soon for on-the-go sleuthing, Poiesz promised.
