IT’S not down the back of the sofa, and it’s not where you last left it.

You’ve tried ringing it but of course, it’s on silent.

But you can now find your phone using Google.

People with Android phones can now use the search engine to help locate their phone.

Provided you have access to your computer (and the latest version of the Google app on your device), you can simply type in ‘Find my phone’ into Google and your phone’s location will be brought up.

And Google can even ring the device if it’s nearby.

Apple device owners have had the function for quite some time, but it’s good news for those loyal to Android.
