Google's AirDrop-like Files Go returns to the Play Store

It's billed primarily as a file management app, letting users quickly locate content on their devices in one spot. It also has a handy file send/receive feature that can be done with another nearby phone even if you don't have a data connection.

This is a beta app, and Google notes that there could be some bugs and issues that arise while using the app.

Despite all of Google's effort to prevent malware from being transferred to its official Play store Mobile App, the company has continued tripping up-to with a very alarming regularity as of late.

As you dive into the various sections, you can then filter the files by source for easier discovery, access, or deletion. However, this app is available on Google play store for beta users. It will also show users how much space they've used on their phone, automatically recognize apps that aren't used all that often, and recommend ways to free up space.

So it only makes sense that Google is working on its own version for file transfer between Android devices. We have not tried the app yet to see how the feature works in practice. It's more concerned with helping you find files and delete them than helping you organize your system. You can both send files and receive files wirelessly through this app. The app itself is 5.41MB, which means it is not as big as other file sharing apps like Xender. With Wi-Fi and Bluetooth toggled on two devices, files can be transferred effortlessly.

In a panel below it lists stored chat app media, such as pictures, that can be removed. However, that did not last long, and soon enough people were not allowed to register anymore.

So the good news is that this app is available right now through the APK.

There are no details about when the app will be released. To help in this situation, Google has introduced an app. When it does though, we will be the first to let you know.
