Google has officially announced their all new service which will help users locate their smartphones. Dubbed as Android Device Manager, the service will help Android owners locate their lost smartphones easily. The service is similar to Sony's my Xperia service, which recently got rolled out globally. The service will help owners keep their data safe and secure and delete them just in case there is information on it that can threaten the free world.

Android Device Manager will help the owners quickly ring their phone at maximum volume, even if it is on the silent mode, so you can find it easily (if the smartphone is near-by). The service will also help you locate your device on a map in real time and can quickly and securely erase all the data of the device remotely.

Google will release the Android Device Manager app and web based service later this month. All the Android smartphone with Android 2.2 or above can easily enjoy this service, after it is rolled-out. For more information, head over to this page.

Update: Some Reddit users are reporting that the Android Device Manager service application is showing up on their Android smartphones. The application is reported to be a part of Google Play Services app, which will automatically bring this service on your device. Currently the web based version of this service is not yet live, so the application is of no use right now. AndroidPolice has leaked the apk of Google Play Services which brings this service, to download the apk click here.

Its better you wait for the official roll-out rather than installing the apk file. To manually check if your handset has received this service or not, then head over to Settings > Security > Device Administrator.
