Google announced the feature was coming last Friday on its official Android blog.
"Have you ever lost your phone in between the couch cushions or forgot it in a restaurant? Or maybe searching for your phone before you rush out the door is part of your morning routine?" the blog post states. "Let the new Android Device Manager help you out! It's one of a few simple features you can use to keep your device-and the data you store inside-safe and secure."
The feature is available on any mobile device running Android 2.2 or higher.
To use it navigate to the Device Manager home page and sign in with your Google account. The service includes the ability to manage multiple devices.
