Android Device Manager starts rolling to devices in India

Just a few days back we reported about the new service from Google called the Android Device Manager, which would help you track your Android smartphone. One of our readers informed us that the service have already started rolling out in India.


The Android Device Manager has started rolling out to Android devices in India. The functionality is being automatically added to devices running Android 2.2 and higher using the Google Play Services. While the service has been spotted on a Samsung Galaxy Grand, other devices are soon expected to follow suit.

To check if the Android Device Manager has been added to your device navigate to Settings > Security > Device Administrator, where you should see the Android Device Manager option. However, the web interface which is required to monitor the device isn’t available yet thus rendering the service mostly useless. The service allows users to remotely locate, erase, or ring a lost or stolen Android device using their Google account.
