Google readying Android app to manage storage, share files without internet


Now available as a preview, Files Go lets you manage and share files and free up space on your smartphone or tablet.

The smart storage manager app could be used to share, delete or manage all kinds of files.

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

For us, the Storage tab presented a card to free up 1.05GB of app cache, free up 274MB of large image files, free up 36B of downloaded files, and free up 25.53MB of duplicate files. Another additional feature is the ability to transfer files from your phone to a friend's handset in the immediate vicinity.

Inside the Settings menu, Files Go can notify you when your device is nearly full (Low Storage).




In response to the leaked app getting reposted and covered by many other outlets, Caesar Sengupta, a member of the Google Team in Singapore has tweeted a link for the same app, this time back on the Play Store, at the same web address as the broken link from the original story. The app may be unstable for now as it is still under beta test.

The search engine giant is now testing the app and is available for some users to download it from the Play Store. To use the app, both sender and receiver need to have the app opened and use the Send and Receive file option. Tap that and you are then taken to a list of files it flagged.

As its name suggests, the Files Go app is appeared to be a part of the family that already has YouTube Go and Android Go as the two major solutions for emerging markets. The app will allow you to create your own profile and will allow you to send even large file apps quickly and without issues. It will compile the list from the last month of apps that you have used and not used.

The app is available now for anyone who wants to give it a shot. The bad news, is that there is no official release date yet for it to hit Google Play Store. But we can expect that Google will release this app very soon for all. When it does though, we will be the first to let you know.
