Android Device Manager hasn’t been updated since 2015, but that is finally changing today, and the changes are welcomed.

The first thing you’ll notice in version 2 of the app is the name has changed completely. “Android Device Manager” is now known as simply “Find My Device,” and the user interface has changed just a bit, too, to make it all a bit easier to navigate. The last vestiges of the Holo UI is gone, too, and all of your devices are more obvious in a pictured list at the top of the app.

All of the same options for finding your misplaced device are present, like sending a loud pinging sound from your device if you lost it in the couch cushions. You can lock it remotely, too, of course.

The new version of the app is available now.
