Android Wear is still relatively young, but its features continue to grow through updates. Today, the Official Android Blog announced that the Android Device Manager will now support Android Wear. That means you will now be able to find your phone by saying “Ok, Google. Start. Find my phone.” Your phone will then ring at full volume no matter the setting.
The update isn’t out just yet, but it will be in the coming weeks. We will continue to keep you in the loop when the update starts hitting the airwaves. The entire press release can be seen below.
In 2013 we introduced Android Device Manager to help you locate and secure your Android devices. Since then Android Device Manager has helped reunite almost 30 million users with their wayward phones and tablets.
Today we’re making Android Device Manager even more useful by introducing support for Android Wear to help you find your lost device. Misplaced your Android phone? No problem! Android Wear connects your phone to your wrist, and together with Android Device Manager, you can make sure it stays that way.To use this new feature, just say ‘Ok, Google. Start. Find my phone,’ or select the ‘Find my phone’ option in the Start menu. Your phone will ring at full volume, and you’ll be that much closer to, well, finding your phone.
Best of all, you won’t need to do anything to enable this new feature. It’s rolling out to all Android Wear devices over the next few weeks.
