Google's 'Files Go' app released as a Beta after recent leak

Share

Now Google is bringing a similar feature to Android with a new app called Files Go. The app takes less than 6MB of your phone's storage. However, this app is available on Google play store for beta users. 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. But it's main selling point is arguably the AirDrop-like ability to send files to other Android devices without access to Wi-Fi or cellular networks. It will also show users how much space they've used on their phone, automatically recognize apps that aren't used all that often, and recommend ways to free up space. All the files are sorted in sections: Downloads, Received Files, Images, Videos, Audio, and Documents.

All said, there is no word from Google as to when we should expect the final version of Google Files Go to appear on the Google Play Store. On this app the Files tab is nothing more than a file management tab.

Files Go in its current state is available for devices running Android 5.0 and above.

Mariah Carey accused of sexual harassment by former head of security
That Mariah Carey is not the head of the most pleasant in the world, with its employees, it does not seem too hard to imagine. The complaint is being raised after Carey failed to pay the company for services they provided and ended a two-year contract.

Below that, there's App Cache, Downloaded Files, and Duplicate Files. You can select individual items or everything and hit the delete button at the bottom to free up storage.

As now this app is now in beta testing. Instead of continuing to keep quiet about its plans, as before, it instead opened up Files Go to beta testers who want to get a first look ahead of the public launch. It also enables you to share the files offline- quickly and securely.

The app itself is fairly lightweight, as an under 6 MB download. However, that did not last long, and soon enough people were not allowed to register anymore. The bad news, is that there is no official release date yet for it to hit Google Play Store.
