Find your phone with your Google Assistant

Never lose your phone again! You can ask your Google Assistant to ring or call your phone. 

What you need

Your Android phone needs to be:

  • Turned on
  • Signed in to a Google Account
  • Connected to mobile data or Wi-Fi
  • Visible on Google Play
  • Location is turned on
  • Find My Device is turned on. After you sign in to a Google Account on an Android device, Find My Device is on by default. 

Step 1. Set up personalization 

If multiple people are using the same Google Home device, everyone who wants to ring their own phone must link their Google Account and voice to Google Home, even the person who set up Google Home.

If you're the only person using Google Home, or you've already linked your Google Account and voice, skip this step. 

Link your Google Account and voice to a Google Home device
  1. Open the Google Home app .
    1. Make sure the Google Home app is updated with the latest version.
  2. Make sure your phone or tablet is connected to the same Wi-Fi network as Google Home.
  3. Tap Menu  and make sure the Google Account listed is the one you want to link to your voice. To switch accounts, click the triangle next to the Account name and choose the correct Account. 
  4. In the top right corner of the app Home screen, tap Devices . Find the device card of the Google Home you'd like to link to your voice. 
  5. From the device card, tap the blue banner labeled Multi user is now available or Link your account.
  6. Tap CONTINUE. 
  7. If you haven’t already agreed to what is required to get help from your Assistant, you’ll see a screen outlining the permissions. Tap YES I’M IN. 
  8. Follow the prompts to teach Google Home to recognize your voice. You'll say "Ok Google” twice and “Hey Google” twice. Note: This turns on Personal results.
  9. To test a few phrases, say something like, “Ok Google, tell me about my day.” Tap CONTINUE. 
  10. To invite other people to link their Google Account & voice for tailored results, tap INVITE, choose your communication method, and send the invite. To skip this step, tap No thanks.
  11. You'll see a list of devices you've linked to your voice. These devices will read personal info when they hear your voice. If your Assistant isn’t recognizing your voice correctly, tap Teach it your voice again to try again. 

Step 2. Find your phone!

Say "Ok, Google find/ring my phone" and your Google Assistant will ring your phone, even if it's set to "Do not disturb" mode.
