You can now find your Android phone using your Android Wear smart watch

Your phone and smart watch should rarely be parted, so Google’s doing something to lower the chances of that happening. The company has announced a forthcoming update to Android Wear that will add support for Android Device Manager, an app that helps you locate your phone and perform remote actions like blaring a ringer or remotely locking access to it.

Find your phone with Android Wear

To use it, you can speak into your smart watch the following command:

Ok, Google. Start. Find my phone

Or find the “find my phone” option in the start menu. It’ll start ringing your phone to allow you to find its location. Unfortunately it doesn’t seem like there’s access to more advanced location features just yet, but perhaps there are plans to make that happen in the near future.

The best part is that you won’t need to deal with an OTA — Google says it’ll appear on your smart watch automatically, though it might take a few weeks to each everyone.
