Google launches Files Go Beta for offline sharing and file management

Google has launched a new Android app.

Google has announced a new Files To Go app to share and manage files on Android.

The app seems fairly basic now, according to screenshots shared by 9to5Google. Besides, it can notify you when an app is not used for more than 30 days, when downloaded files are taking up space and when large media folders are taking up crucial space on your device. We've reached out to Google for more details and will update this post when we hear back.

Inside the Settings menu, Files Go can notify you when your device is nearly full (Low Storage). Google is currently running an early access program, which is currently full, so the majority of users can not download it right now. No complains here, nevertheless, as the app is still in beta testing phase so we hope Google can improve the stability. The app will recommend rarely used apps to remove, recognize and notify you of spam and duplicate images, help you find photos, videos, and documents fast and make it easy to share documents offline by way of making a mini hotspot. Here's what you need to know about Files Go before you get started. Just select the name from the list and share your files.

Google has been focused on delivering slimmer, less data-hungry apps that will work on all sorts of hardware, including less expensive devices with a lot less storage, which are popular in emerging countries. It also has a handy file send/receive feature that can be done with another nearby phone even if you don't have a data connection.

Besides, the Files Go app lists all the apps that are unused on your device from the last four weeks.

The app itself is fairly lightweight, as an under 6 MB download.

The app is available now for anyone who wants to give it a shot. But we can expect that Google will release this app very soon for all. Be warned, there could be some issues and glitches since this is not the final release and was a test version.
