You Can Now Use Google To Direct You To Your Lost Phone
You can now control your Android smartphone with the Google search engine on your computer.
First, you need to update the Google app on your Android phone. If you are not sure how, follow the instructions here.
You can now search for your phone, send yourself directions, send reminders to your phone or set an alarm on your phone from your computer's web browser. It's as easy as typing the command into the Google search bar.
For instance, to send a note to your phone, you search "send a note to my phone" in your computer browser, a box appears and you type your note and hit send. You will receive the note as a notification on your phone.
