Android Device Manager app now available on Google Play Store


Google have very busy of late rolling out updates and even new apps. Gmail, Open Gallery, Street View, Hangouts and Google Play, to name but a few. Now after rolling out a web version of its Android Device Manager back in August, Google today launched a dedicated app for the device tracking tool into the Play Store. The app works similarly to the web-based product, allowing users to locate devices that are associated with their Google account, make a lost unit ring, reset a lock screen PIN an even wipe all of the data on a device. Android Device Manager weighs in at just 1.7MB in size and requires Android 2.3 or higher for installation.


Obviously for users with just one Android-powered hardware, this new Android Device Manager app won’t do much good. For anyone with multiple devices, though, the app provides an easy way to keep track of them all while also being a bit more convenient and speedy than having to fire up a browser and navigate to the web-based version of ADM. For downloading, you can hit the Google Play Store link below.

Note: Google’s web based app can be viewed by putting into your address bar.
