Files Go App Being Tested on Android

Share
Google Files Go

Files Go is meant to be a smart storage app, as it includes features to remove unwanted items, duplicate files, and more. In response, Google vice president Caesar Sengupta tweeted last night that they were making it "available for a few more of you on the Play Store". In fact, it was also noted by one Reddit user that in the Google Play Store the update included the official WhatsApp logo and had a high user rating of 4.2 stars. It can also help spot duplicate files and delete the unwanted copies. This unreleased app was earlier posted on Google Play by mistake. The default Storage tab offers suggestions to clear files and get the most out of the space. The company had been preparing to announce its new file manager for Android later in December, but those plans were thwarted earlier this week when the app was spotted in the wild during testing.

The Files Go app is similar to both Android Go and YouTube Go in terms of the basic premise of the app.

We've downloaded the app and tested it.

Afterwards, it opens a page that shows nearby devices, with recipients needing to open the app on their devices and tap receive to begin the connection process. The app will allow you to create your own profile and will allow you to send even large file apps quickly and without issues. With Wi-Fi and Bluetooth toggled on two devices, files can be transferred effortlessly.

For those who missed it, Files Go is a smart file manager from Google that tries to recommend apps or files to clean up from your device to free up space. The app is no longer available as the program is full. This makes it easier to free up some space by uninstalling those apps right from the Google solution.

Essentially, Google has chose to capitalize on the interest in the new app, thanks to its exposure through media coverage. When it does though, we will be the first to let you know.
