Google extends Files Go offline sharing app beta to more users

We recently told you about the new file management app by Google called Files Go. The app was being tested as a pilot app on some Android devices a while back as part of the Early Access Program. The default Storage tab offers suggestions to clear files and get the most out of the space.

Always be on your guard, and if you see an app breaking the rules, you can report it to Google Play via this online form.

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. You also will notice you can clean the app cache from here and also remove media that you recorded.

Google is preparing to launch an Android file-sharing app that doesn't require mobile data. This makes it easier to free up some space by uninstalling those apps right from the Google solution. All the files are sorted in sections: Downloads, Received Files, Images, Videos, Audio, and Documents. The UI shows a radar-like interface to initiate transfers between two devices - with the caveat that both devices needs Files Go to be installed.

The Commission added that its forecasts are based on a "purely technical assumption" that UK-EU trade will continue undisrupted after 2019.

The app itself is fairly lightweight, as an under 6 MB download. This allows you to quickly uninstall apps that you are no longer using or you do not use regularly enough to justify the download.

The app is available now for anyone who wants to give it a shot.

Although Google has, over the years, improved its vetting systems to automatically detect rogue apps attempting to enter the official Android app store, and even introduced human reviewers, it still seems to fall short time and time again. This time, another app pretended to be the popular WhatsApp, and successfully tricked over one million users into thinking it was the real one. Be warned, there could be some issues and glitches since this is not the final release and was a test version.
