    Question What is the Google Now command to ring your lost phone?

    I thought it was "Ring my phone" but that doesn't seem to work. The best I can do is to go around my house saying "Ok Google now" and hoping to hear the recognition beep. It doesn't seem to hear you from all that far away anyway.

    I did find the option via android device manager on the web.

    Find my phone

    And

    Call my droid

    Sorry, just tested. It's find my droid and then call my droid.

    I really wish it would reply with "This isn't the Droid you're looking for."

    My maxx only worked with "call my droid". "Find my droid" took me to a web search for the app "find my droid" which you had to download

    I didn't download anything and they both work for me. They play to different songs.

    Of course I'll never remember the correct phrase by the next time I have to use it. I'll be trying all sorts of derivations...

    call my phone
    find my droid
    find my phone
    call my droid
    ring my phone
    ring my droid
    who's your daddy

    Hopefully it will answer to one of them...

    "Find my phone" sets off the sonar tone for me. I'm also using "OK, Google," as my hot phrase, without the "now."
