Google launched Files Go, an app to clear the unused media as well as apps from your smartphones. However, the app was made available as an early access app (beta). But now it is out of beta and can be installed from the Play Store.
Files Go by Google is specially built for the smartphones with low storage space. It is a part of Google’s Next Billion Users initiative. This app along with other Go apps will come pre installed with low end smartphones running Android Oreo Go Edition which was also launched today.
The features of Files Go as listed by Google:
- Free up space. Get personalized suggestions about which files to delete, whether it’s unused apps, large files, duplicate files or low-resolution videos and memes detected using Google’s latest mobile vision technology.
- Find files faster. No more navigating through a maze of folders. Find exactly the stuff you want with smart filters that automatically organize your images, videos, apps, documents and more.
- Backup files to the cloud. If you want to keep a file forever, select it from the Files menu and back it up to Google Drive or any other cloud storage app.
- Share files offline. Transfer directly from your phone to a nearby friend’s phone without using any data. The file transfers are encrypted, fast (up to 125 Mbps) and free.
As listed above, the Files Go app will help you delete the unused media or applications, backup your files to cloud from within the app, categorized view of files (sadly, no file explorer) and share your files with your friend using Files Go without internet. Above all, it weighs less than 6MB.
