Google Makes Its Secret Files Go App Available for Download

Even when the listing was live, not everyone was able to download Google Files Go, and people saw a message that said that the app is part of an early access program that is now full.

Technically, right now, the app is available as a beta, but it seems like anyone with a device running Android (5.0 and up) can download it from the Google Play Store and test it out.

The Files Go app will also list every app on your Android device that you are not using.

Most features on File Go are focused on space and storage management on your phone.

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

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.




Upon launching Files Go, you will be brought to a main screen that is split into two tabs: Storage and Files.

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. Just select the name from the list and share your files.

According to 9to5Google, the app looks to be part file manager and part file transfer app. Files Go aims to be a one-stop shop for Android users to manage their files on board without using third party apps.

Comparatively, Apple's AirDrop does not need any additional apps to transfer files between devices. This uses the Bluetooth connection on your Android device.

As now this app is now in beta testing. We think that Google likely will be testing this app out for a bit longer before the official release happens.
