Google is preparing to launch a new Android app that will help users transfer files to other contacts without using up mobile data. It recommends apps that aren't used often for removal, helps get rid of "spam and duplicate images" and helps users find everything on their phones by file type.
The app seems fairly basic now, according to screenshots shared by 9to5Google.
Most features on File Go are focused on space and storage management on your phone.
One major feature of the app is the file transfer, which uses Bluetooth connectivity. We've reached out to Google for more details and will update this post when we hear back.
Files Go in its current state is available for devices running Android 5.0 and above. The page notes that the unreleased app may be unstable. Google's VP of product management, Caesar Sengupta, acknowledged the app's discovery on Twitter earlier and stated that Google has made it available to download from the Play Store once more in beta format, so don't be surprised if the app has a couple of quirky habits.

Comparatively, Apple's AirDrop does not need any additional apps to transfer files between devices.
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.
Jumping onto the "Files" tab will let you access Downloads, Received Files, Images, Videos, Audio and Documents.
Google thinks since folks are already talking about it, they may as well test the app and provide feedback. There's an option to get an alert about the unused apps, using which you can delete the unused app and free storage. The app will allow you to create your own profile and will allow you to send even large file apps quickly and without issues. What File Manager do you use now on your smartphone?
The app itself is fairly lightweight, as an under 6 MB download. But we can expect that Google will release this app very soon for all.
