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

9to5Google spotted the app in the Play Store, which was available briefly under Google's early-access program. People did, however, manage to take screenshots of the app.

Today Google released Files Go Beta for Android devices. 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. According to now-pulled Play Store images, the app is meant to transfer files wirelessly, even without an internet connection, much like Apple's AirDrop tech. Besides, the Files tab also lets you Send and Receive files offline through a Wi-Fi hotspot connection. Besides, it can notify you when an app is not used for more than 30 days, when downloaded files are taking up space and when large media folders are taking up crucial space on your device.

The Files tab features the file-transfer tool that allows users to share images, videos, and audio with friends in Bluetooth range. To use the beta version of Google's Files Go app, you can download it from Play Store.

The Storage tab is populated with cards for different things, like large files that you can remove, duplicate content or junk files. Just select the name from the list and share your files.

We've downloaded the app and tested it.

According to ZDNet, Files Go may be launch by next year and it will help Android users to transfer files from one phone to another without feeding on the mobile data.

Besides, the Files Go app lists all the apps that are unused on your device from the last four weeks.

The APK file of the Files Go app is around 5.41MB in size, lower than the size of the Shareit and Xender installation packages. We are not sure when this app will be available for all users. Let us know in the comment section below. But, if you want, those can be disabled in the Settings menu, which, right now, doesn't have a ton of options that you can play with.
