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

Files Go – Google's unreleased file management app appears, quickly disappears from the Play Store

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.

The revelation and banishment of the fake Whatsapp application are the most recent in an undeniably humiliating series of occurrences where users have discovered phony software on Google Play Store - which ought to be the most secure source of Android applications. 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. The app serves several key functions, including working as a storage manager to organize files and free up space. Given the popularity of this neat app, Google has expanded the availability of the beta on the Play Store.

One major feature of the app is the file transfer, which uses Bluetooth connectivity. As such, Files Go helps users get the most out of their phone's storage. Named Files Go, the app is meant to be a smart file manager, and was accidentally uploaded to the Play Store for a short time, which made it possible for users to download the app and test it.

Users can browse through all of your phone's content by downloads, received files, images, videos, audio, and documents.

We've downloaded the app and tested it.

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

For those not familiar, aside from simply letting you explore your files, Files Go helps you clear up space by deleting unused apps, duplicate photos, and large files.

So the good news is that this app is available right now through the APK. 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 compile the list from the last month of apps that you have used and not used. The bad news, is that there is no official release date yet for it to hit Google Play Store.
