Google launches Files Go Beta for offline sharing and file management

Google Files Go

This app is both a storage management app and a way you can quickly transfer files using a wireless option. File sharing works similarly to Apple's AirDrop feature, meaning you won't need an internet connection to drop a file to a friend from your device to theirs.

However, this opinion has proved unpopular, as file managers are some of the most downloaded apps by category on the Play Store.

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. You can't, for example, access the device's root folder or even copy and paste files.

You can avoid this from happening by making sure that the name you are searching on the search bar in the Play Store matches the app's name. Lack of proper file management is often blamed for poor performance of most Android phones.

A big part of Android Go is a focus on slimmer, less data-hungry apps that'll work on a wider variety of hardware, including the less expensive and less advanced devices that are popular in countries around the world.

Below that, there's App Cache, Downloaded Files, and Duplicate Files. It's more concerned with helping you find files and delete them than helping you organize your system.

Alongside the simple two-tab experience, the Files Go app has the integrated file transfer feature that allows you to send or receive files wirelessly.

From there, users are brought to a message-like interface that shows a history of file transfers.

In a panel below it lists stored chat app media, such as pictures, that can be removed. The app is no longer available as the program is full. It is a new app and Google has not officially released this app yet. You can download the APK right now if you do not want to wait for the official release.
