Google's Upcoming 'Files Go' App to Compete with Apple's AirDrop

Google Files Go

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. You can't, for example, access the device's root folder or even copy and paste files. Now, according to a now-pulled app on Google Play reported by 9to5Google, the company is testing a new Files Go app. The feature uses Bluetooth connectivity of your device to enable wireless transfer - without requiring an active data connection. While the app is now available as an early access program for testing purposes, it will officially be launched globally early next month. While there are a lot of third-party applications that make for great file management tools, there was a void of sorts for a true blue file management tool from Google themselves.

We've downloaded the app and tested it.

Recognize and help you remove the spam & duplicate images. It's more concerned with helping you find files and delete them than helping you organize your system. On this app the Files tab is nothing more than a file management tab. All the files are sorted in sections: Downloads, Received Files, Images, Videos, Audio, and Documents.


Afterwards, it opens a page that shows nearby devices, with recipients needing to open the app on their devices and tap receive to begin the connection process. The app itself is 5.41MB, which means it is not as big as other file sharing apps like Xender.

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. If you once knew that the app must've cost something, then the one listed was given for free, you should start to get suspicious. However, that did not last long, and soon enough people were not allowed to register anymore.

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