You can find your iPhone or Android with Alexa. One of the easiest ways to do this is using Trackr. This is an app that you install on your iPhone or Android phone and then connect to Alexa. You need to do this before you lose your phone. 

In the Alexa commercials, there is a Trackr example where a dog appears to have eaten the phone. While it may not work inside of a dog, this app and Alexa skill will help you find your phone.

Install Trackr for iPhone or Trackr for Android. Say, "Alexa enable Find My Phone skill." In the Trackr app, choose Add New Device and pick Alexa Integration. Say, "Alexa ask Trackr for my pin." Enter the PIN in the Trackr app.  

Now if you lose your phone you can say, "Alexa ask Trackr to find my phone."
