Google announces Files To Go, takes on ShareIt

  • After leak, Google's new file manager for Android, Files Go, launches into public beta

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

Google apparently is working on a new file-transfer app for Android that works like Apple's AirDrop.

The app seems fairly basic now, according to screenshots shared by 9to5Google.

Files Go also appears to be aimed at Android users in emerging markets and could be extra helpful on devices with limited local storage that are used in areas with patchy network coverage. We've reached out to Google for more details and will update this post when we hear back. You can select individual items or everything and hit the delete button at the bottom to free up storage.

And Horizon Zero Dawn DLC

The Storage tab is populated with cards for different things, like large files that you can remove, duplicate content or junk files.

Android user's with their device running Android 5.0 or above can download the app from the Play Store now. The app may be unstable for now as it is still under beta test. The app is free to use, with no ads or in-app purchases, though Google is probably scanning all the data you share to serve better ads elsewhere online. It also enables you to share the files offline- quickly and securely. You will see options to get alerts about low storage, unused apps, downloaded files, large media folders, etc. The only other drawback is that Google limits the storage space inside Files Go to just 6MB, at least for now. The UI shows a radar-like interface to initiate transfers between two devices - with the caveat that both devices needs Files Go to be installed.

The app is available now for anyone who wants to give it a shot. We think that Google likely will be testing this app out for a bit longer before the official release happens.

We do not know yet if the page will remain open, or Netflix will close it once again.
