Google extends Files Go offline sharing app beta to more users

The Google Pixel 2 XL

Talking about the Files Go app, it's a simple file manager that aims to help you take care of the files stored on your phone and tell you about which files are taking up most of the space.

Files Go is a free download here on Google Play.

Share your files offline - fast & secure - with the tap of a button. OEMs have made it a point to include custom file managers in their ROMs, but with Android 4.4 KitKat, the Documents provider gained basic file management capabilities. The app was briefly listed as an unreleased app on Google Play, with users required to enter an early access programme for testing. Another additional feature is the ability to transfer files from your phone to a friend's handset in the immediate vicinity. It will also show users how much space they've used on their phone, automatically recognize apps that aren't used all that often, and recommend ways to free up space. However, the audio, video and image files can only be shared within Bluetooth range.

Another cool thing about the Files Go app is that it will allow you to transfer files wirelessly. Now, according to a now-pulled app on Google Play reported by 9to5Google, the company is testing a new Files Go app.

To solve this issue, it looks like Google is working on a new application called Files Go.

Moreover, it is best to read the description of the app so that you can determine if the features are listed based on your expectations.

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.

The Files Go app has a convenient interface that comes with two tabs - Storage and Files. To use the app, both sender and receiver need to have the app opened and use the Send and Receive file option.

There are no details about when the app will be released.
