Track and/or read some type of message? These are two different things. Then there is a question as to what you mean by "track". Do you want to know where the phone is at the time that you check or do you want a bread crumb trail of where the phone has been when you check.
There are many tracking apps in Google Play store.
The built in Android Device Manger in Google + can not also locate the phone at any given time.
