Google Files Go Is An AirDrop-like File Transfer App

Google Files Go Is An AirDrop-like File Transfer App

The beta app has now returned to Google Play where it's listed as "Files Go Beta: Free up space on your phone (Unreleased)". Earlier this week, a File Manager app called "Files Go" from Google was spotted on Play Store. For those of you with 128GB phones, this may not be something you care about, but if you have a phone like the Moto X4 pictured above, this is exactly the type of app that could come in handy. It's built to seek out files you don't need-rarely used apps, duplicate images and spam-so you can easily delete them. The originally active Storage tab shows you the free space available on your device alongside sporting feature cards that give you access to clean app cache, remove recorded media, and free up the storage by removing large and downloaded files.

Nevertheless, a downloadable APK file of the Files Go app is available through APK Mirror to reveal its features.

Upon launching Files Go, you will be brought to a main screen that is split into two tabs: Storage and Files.

Google is getting ready to expand its collection of Android apps once more, as it just introduced a new title on Google Play.

Recently, Google has Launched Parental control App "Family Link" for Android without an invitation.

Inside the Settings menu, Files Go can notify you when your device is nearly full (Low Storage).

According to 9to5Google, the app looks to be part file manager and part file transfer app. Files Go aims to be a one-stop shop for Android users to manage their files on board without using third party apps. One screenshot hints that file transfers work via Bluetooth, though that's not confirmed.

As now this app is now in beta testing.

Another cool thing about the Files Go app is that it will allow you to transfer files wirelessly. The app itself is 5.41MB, which means it is not as big as other file sharing apps like Xender. We think that Google likely will be testing this app out for a bit longer before the official release happens. Be warned, there could be some issues and glitches since this is not the final release and was a test version.
