Google Tests Files Go App for Android, Aims At Storage management
Google is reportedly testing a new storage management app dubbed “Files Go” that will allow Android users to organize their file storage and manage wireless file transfer requirements.
Google Files Go App for Android
The company listed the app on Google Play Store as an unreleased app for some time and later removed it from the listing.
After YouTube Go and Android Go, ‘Files Go’ appears to be the part of the major solutions that Google planned for emerging markets. Though, the app isn’t officially available for download, you can access its downloadable APK file through APK Mirror to get a glimpse of app’s features. You can install the app through the available file on any of your devices that supports Android 5.0 and above.
As seen in screenshot above, the Files Go app has an intuitive user interface with two tabs on board, one for Storage and other for Files. The active Storage tab features the free space available on your device. It contains feature cards that give you access to clean app cache, remove recorded media, and free up the storage by removing large and downloaded files.
The Files tab, as name implies, happens to be a file management app. It enlists file sources such as Downloads, Received files, Images, Videos, and Documents.
Besides, two-tab experience feature, the Files Go app offers an integrated file transfer feature that allows users to send or receive files wirelessly. To enable wireless transfer, it uses phone’s Bluetooth connectivity without requiring an active data connection. Like its rivals Shareit and Xender, Google’s app also creates your profile so that you can help you send large-sized files with your nearby contacts quickly.
The app also enlists the apps that are unused on your device from the last four weeks and can be uninstalled to free up some precious space.
