This feature is actually an extension to Android Device Manager which normally allows you to locate your phone via the internet.

But even with this great advancement there is still a catch. Since it solely relies on Bluetooth it is confined to work only within Bluetooth range.

This limits the use to a relatively small area such as at home or in the office. With the feature all you have to do is tap on the find my phone icon and you can follow the pings to your phone.

The awesome update will be rolling out over the next few weeks. It is either activated by voice command or by touch which makes it totally cool.
