Google is making it easier for people to find their lost cellphones. 

Digital Trends reports, instead of having to search places high and low, people can now just use Google's search engine.  

The feature requires you to type "Find my phone," in the search bar.  From there, Google locates the lost cellphone and brings up a map to show its location.  Once the phone is located, a person can let the phone  continuously ring or remotely lock it.  There is also the option to wipe whatever is on the phone. 

The feature is only available for Android.
