Users have to simply enable the tracker by tapping a new "Find my phone" option that shows up in the Start menu after the update. To use Android Device Manager app users have to say "Ok, Google. Start. Find my phone," into your Android Wear device and your Android phone will start ringing at full volume.

Google is also planning to add gesture control and WiFi support to Android Wear in a new update. The WiFi feature will be activated via a software update as most Android Wear smartwatches already come with built-in WiFi support. Gesture control will allow users to simply flick their wrist to scroll through notifications and Google Now cards.

Last year, Google had updated the Android Device Manager app with ability to set a call back button on the lock screen of a lost or a stolen smartphone. Users can add an alternative phone number that will appear in the form of a bright green call button on the lock screen. Google has introduced the feature in its Web interface and the official app for Android Device Manager. The internet giant is also planning to add an anti-theft kill switch to its Android smartphones in the next version of Android that will be released in the middle of this year.
