Google is reportedly working on an AirDrop-like file transfer app

Files Go app was released by Google in a closed-beta program which is not stable and might freeze sometimes.

(Web Desk) - Tech giant Google is readying its latest Android app which will allow the smartphone users to share files and manage their storage without using internet. 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. 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 default Storage tab offers suggestions to clear files and get the most out of the space. To share the files, you and the receiver needs to tap the receive button.

Download Files Go from the Play Store and agree to the beta's terms. On this app the Files tab is nothing more than a file management tab. There are some slight lag with certain animations on occasions but we expect Google to get it fixed once this app is out to all the users.

Recently, Google has Launched Parental control App "Family Link" for Android without an invitation.

As now this app is now in beta testing. Due to the word Go in the name, it's also being speculated that Files Go might be a part of Google's Android Go initiative. It also enables you to share the files offline- quickly and securely.

Let us know about your experience with the Files Go app in the comments below. However, one thing which is still missing from a Stock Android build is a dedicated File Manager app. It will compile the list from the last month of apps that you have used and not used. The app itself is 5.41MB, which means it is not as big as other file sharing apps like Xender. We are not sure when this app will be available for all users. Be warned, there could be some issues and glitches since this is not the final release and was a test version.
