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

The Files Go app will also list every app on your Android device that you are not using. Instead of continuing to keep quiet about its plans, as before, it instead opened up Files Go to beta testers who want to get a first look ahead of the public launch.

The Files Go app is similar to both Android Go and YouTube Go in terms of the basic premise of the app. This unreleased app was earlier posted on Google Play by mistake. Another additional feature is the ability to transfer files from your phone to a friend's handset in the immediate vicinity.

Here, the Storage tab, left, shows a device with 8GB of internal storage and displays how much capacity has been used. Importantly, Files Go would spot and remove spam as well as duplicate images to free up storage.

A big part of Android Go is a focus on slimmer, less data-hungry apps that'll work on a wider variety of hardware, including the less expensive and less advanced devices that are popular in countries around the world.

Files Go, the secret file manager app of Google's that was discovered earlier in the week, is now available for download on Google Play.

Users can browse through all of your phone's content by downloads, received files, images, videos, audio, and documents. 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.

"The app itself has minimal permissions (internet access) but it's basically an ad-loaded wrapper which has some code to download a second apk, also called "whatsapp.apk", he said. With Wi-Fi and Bluetooth toggled on two devices, files can be transferred effortlessly. The app is no longer available as the program is full. It will compile the list from the last month of apps that you have used and not used. It is a new app and Google has not officially released this app yet. Google has enforced software to pinpoint and block malicious apps running on Android gadgets and checking developers' identities as well as preventing those with a history of violation.
