Technology news -
Google already lets Android users track their misplaced or stolen smartphones both through search and by using the standalone Android Device Manager app. Today, the company is adding yet another path to checking exactly where your precious device is on a map — and it even works with iPhones this time.

Tap that, and you'll be able to make the phone ring at maximum volume, lock it (with a message and contact number on the lock screen), or locate its precise position using the Device Manager. Now all of this stuff applies strictly to Android; if you're on iOS, My Account will point you towards iCloud and Apple's Find My iPhone tracking. That's the right way to go, since Google can't take such control of Apple's devices.
