Apple's Find My Friends service can now be accessed from any mobile device, including a Windows PC, as the company has added it to its iCloud.com site. The app has been available for quite a while on iPhones and iPads through an iOS app, but now it can be accessed on all platforms through a universal web app.

Find My Friends will display the location of each friend on a map, and will also tell which friends are located nearby. Thus, the app joins Find My iPhone and several other iCloud apps, including Mail, Calendar, Photos, Contacts, Notes, Reminders, iCloud Drive, and the iWork suite of apps.

Activating the app still requires an iPhone or iPad, which allows the service to track users' current locations.
iOS 9 also includes a Find My Friends widget to match the OS X Notification Center widget.
