How to Use Files Go, Google's New AirDrop-Style File Sharing App

Posted November 11, 2017

Google is pretty proud of the fact that this is a "light" app, announcing in Files Go's description on Google Play that it only needs under 6MB of space. To help in this situation, Google has introduced an app. For those of you with 128GB phones, this may not be something you care about, but if you have a phone like the Moto X4 pictured above, this is exactly the type of app that could come in handy.

As expected of any self-respecting file manager app, Google Files Go app offers suggestions to users to help them delete apps and programs that are sparingly used and needlessly take up space. To share any image or document via Files To Go, go the Files Tab and simply tap on the Send button.

Or, you can prompt a transaction by sending or receiving a message asking for money. Apple Pay Cash uses the debit or credit card linked to your Apple Pay account.

The search engine giant is now testing the app and is available for some users to download it from the Play Store. "For instance, you can choose to display only files from the camera, those that are screenshots, those from a chat application, and so on". Google is currently running an early access program, which is currently full, so the majority of users can not download it right now.

Google has launched a new Android app.

On the software front, the Sense version runs on Android Nougat at this point and will get the Oreo update in the coming months. HTC has equipped the U11+ with a 12-megapixel rear camera with an f/1.7 aperture and optical image stabilisation.

For us, the Storage tab presented a card to free up 1.05GB of app cache, free up 274MB of large image files, free up 36B of downloaded files, and free up 25.53MB of duplicate files.

As its name suggests, the Files Go app is appeared to be a part of the family that already has YouTube Go and Android Go as the two major solutions for emerging markets. No complains here, nevertheless, as the app is still in beta testing phase so we hope Google can improve the stability. You'll see a list of people nearby, but for the app to work, they'll need to have Files Go installed themselves, then open the app and hit Receive. One screenshot hints that transferring is likely performed over Bluetooth. For those who use Shareit, you will find File Go app similar to it.

So the good news is that this app is available right now through the APK. We havent tested this feature yet, so do let us know if it works.
