Google's 'Files Go' app released as a Beta after recent leak

Google's 'Files Go' app released as a Beta after recent leak

But, of course, not everyone uses Google Photos, and not everyone uses Google Drive, so it will be interesting to see whether Google tries to push its other services through the Files Go app in the future.

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.

It's easy to see why so many people were duped into downloading the fake app. The fake 'Update WhatsApp Messenger App' showed up in Google's official Android store, and was was even labeled as having been made by WhatsApp Inc, the now Facebook-owned maker of the genuine messaging app.

Files Go is part file manager, part transfer utility, and part cleanup utility.

Yes, but these days however, the development of fake apps have lost some of their bite. There are different sections where you can look at specific files, for example, pictures taken only with your phone camera. The app isnt finished, and may freeze when you try to refresh the apps home screen.

So Files Go is essentially an amalgamation of three services: system cleanup, file-management, and file transfers. If you want to receive files, just open the Files Go app and tap receive.

This is an important feature since using this capability, the attackers can get access to text messages if two factor authentication is enabled by a user. File sharing works similarly to Apple's AirDrop feature, meaning you won't need an internet connection to drop a file to a friend from your device to theirs. With Files Go, Android device owners can maximise their phone's storage.

Earlier this week, news emerged that Google was in the early stages of testing a new app called Files Go.

For folks that are worried about the storage space on their phone, Google has a new way to help ease the load.
