What do you think about this new Google feature?

Do ensure that GPS is active on your phone. If Google can’t access your phone’s GPS it will be unable to locate it. It can get tough if you lose your phone in areas where the GPS signal is weak!

Google’s Android Device Manager already allows users to find Google via the voice-command feature on Google Now. In order to ensure that the Device manager can locate the device, you need to register the device with the feature as well.
