Google can now help find your phone - #findphone

Google has always helped you find information that you are looking for, now this is taken to a next level. If you have an android smartphone and have any time logged in to your Google account, then Google can help you track your phone. Google has introduced a new feature that allows Android
users to simply type ‘find my phone’ into a search box to find their smartphone.

This works as long as you are logged in with the same Google account that is registered on their smartphone. Google uses a feature available in the Android Device Manager, which is already installed on your Android smartphone.

So, if you've lost a device, Google uses the Android Device Manager to find its approximate location on a map and when it was last used. When the Android Device Manager locates your device, that device will get a notification. Once you locate your device, you can remotely ring, lock, or erase data in it using Android Device Manager.

Before you can use Android Device Manager to locate your device, make sure your device's location access is turned on and be signed in to your Google Account. Android Device Manager won't work for devices that are turned off or that don't have a mobile data or Wi-Fi connection.

So give it a try.. go to and sign in, then search ' find my phone ' or alternatively click here for a quick Google search. Don't forget to try the 'Ring' option too.

Google Cars now on roads in Texas - @Googlecars

Google has reached a new milestone in its self-driving car project. The prototype showcased last time
has already gained popularity, but now Google has selected Texas as the latest testing site for its self-driving car project.

The plans is to have the driver less car to operate a few square miles north and north-east of down town Austin. The testing fleet in California includes Lexus SUVs and also prototype vehicles. It’s also releasing a monthly report on the progress of the project and, crucially, any accidents that happen.

The project was in negative news in June when Google’s self-driving cars were involved in two accidents on the roads of Mountain View, California, but humans driving the other vehicles were at fault in both cases. No injuries were reported in either incident, Google said in its monthly report that lists accidents involving its fleet of autonomous cars. Both collisions involved test cars from Google’s fleet of Lexus sport utility vehicles, which are equipped with autonomous driving technology.

All self-driving vehicles in California and Texas have safety drivers on board. Google has “self-driven” more than 1 million miles, according to the company’s website.
