Remember that feature that Google introduced last week that let you locate your lost Android phone just by typing â€œfind my phoneâ€ into a search box? Well now El Goog has added another Android-specific feature to its search bar.
If you navigate to Google and type â€œsend directionsâ€ into the search box, youâ€™ll be able to enter a location that youâ€™d like to navigate to and then send directions to your Android phone. When you unlock your handset, youâ€™ll be presented with that location in Google Maps and then you can navigate to the place.
This feature worked really well for me, with my phone buzzing with the Google Maps location seconds after I clicked â€œSend directions to my phoneâ€ on my laptop. While thereâ€™s already a few other ways for you quickly bring up directions on your phone, this new method lets you use the large screen of your computer to find the place that youâ€™d like to navigate to and then send the directions to your phone lightning fast. So the next time youâ€™re at your computer and you need directions, give this a try.
