Find My Device update helps you find a lost phone in malls, airports, and more

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.


Android Authority –

  • Google has updated its Find My Device service to include indoor maps for large areas.
  • Among these are malls, stadiums, and airports.
  • The update should make it easier for users to pinpoint lost phones.

Losing a phone can instill a paralyzing fear in a person. Fortunately, apps like Google’s Find My Device make them easier to recover. Now, the app has gotten even better thanks to a new update bringing support for indoor positioning (via Ars Technica).

Google has added indoor maps for places such as airports, malls, stadiums, and other large buildings, to make it easier for users to pinpoint the location of a lost device. Instead of GPS button hovering over the building, the device will now be shown on the floor plan, giving users a more accurate approximation of where their phone is hiding.
