Google’s Android Device Manager now available as separate app in Play Store


A few months ago, Google introduced one of the most requested features to Android: the ability to track lost devices and wipe them if necessary. The feature was introduced as Android Device Manager in Google’s Google Settings app, which is installed on every Android device running on Android 2.2 or later, but to actually use it, users were required to open a webpage to access the relevant functionality.

Well, that’s changing today, as Google has launched the Android Device Manager app on the Play Store for free. As with the website, you can ring your devices to locate them, track their location on a map, lock them remotely, and also erase all content, all with a few simple clicks. Naturally, the mobile app is useful only if you have two or more devices, but if you meet that criteria, Android Device Manager can be your best friend if you misplace one of your devices, either at home or elsewhere.

Android Device Manager supports multiple Google accounts, and has both a phone and tablet version with a beautiful Holo UI. It’s available on the Play Store now, so go give it a try at the source link.
