Android owners will soon have a way to locate their lost devices. Later this month, anyone with a Google account will be able to locate their devices on a map in real time, activate their ringer, and even wipe their contents. The service will work as part of a new Android Device Manager website, which will seemingly be an upgraded version of a tool that’s already available for business users.

The remote tools will work on all devices running Android 2.2 and up — which, at 98.7 percent of devices, is just about every one of them.

For Google, the move is a long time coming. Android has quite notably been missing a tool to let users remotely manage their lost devices, while others like Apple and Microsoft have already implemented such features on their mobile operating systems.
