Google Home can help you find your phone when asked

It'll even ring all your smartphones if you lose two of 'em.

As teased by Google at its Pixel 2 launch event earlier this week, its Home speakers can now actively ping your phone when you've misplaced it. (It's down the couch cushions, I bet.) For Android devices, the smart speaker will actually call your phone even if silenced. The feature works with iOS too, although it's a more like a typical phone call. Calling out "ring my phone" or "where's my phone" will stir the Home Speaker into action. And if, like some Engadget editors, you have multiple phones to find, Home will call each device before cycling on to the next one. But, like I keep telling you: it's down the side of the couch. Can't you just check there?
