Google Files reaches more than 500 million downloads in the Play Store. The new features available on Google's File App enables Android users to even share files without an internet connection just like Xender.
When Google Introduced the low-end Android Go Edition(Android Oreo Go Edition), all devices running this OS version came with a file manager — Files Go. Later on, Google changed its name to simply Files by Google and added some new functions to it. And the result, Google Files reaches more than 500 million downloads in the Play Store.
The new features available on Google's File App enables Android users to even share files without an internet connection just like Xender. Another key aspect of this file manager is the option to clean your device storage of old and duplicate files, a function you will find on memory boosting apps. So, basically, the Files App by Google isn't just your common file manager, but a memory booster!
With all the basic characteristics of any typical file manager, one good thing about the Files by Google App is that it is completely ad-free. Most popular file browsers or manager come with ads and you can only remove them by paying for the pro version.
The features vested by Google on their Files App will without any doubt attract many Android users to use it. It's like having three apps in one(A basic file manager, a file-sharing app, and a memory booster app). And to add to that, it's ad-free.
