Description

Files Go is a new storage manager that helps you free up space on your phone, find files faster, and share them easily offline with others.

FREE UP MORE SPACE
In just a few taps, you can free up space more quickly and easily than ever: Delete old photos and memes from chat apps, remove duplicate files, erase unused apps, clear your cache and more. If you're like our beta testers, you can save on average 1GB of space in the first month.

CHECK YOUR STORAGE
Use Files Go to see how much free space is left on your phone and SD card. Easily transfer files to an SD card to free up your phone’s storage, right from the app.

SMART RECOMMENDATIONS
Get helpful suggestions of files to erase before you run out space. Files Go recommendations get smarter the more you use the app.

FIND FILES FASTER
Save time looking for photos, videos, and documents on your phone. Files Go uses filters rather than folders so your stuff is organized more intuitively.

SHARE FILES OFFLINE
Share your pictures, videos, documents, or apps with others nearby who also have the app. With speeds up to 125 Mbps, it’s fast, free, and it works without the internet, so it doesn’t cost mobile data.

ENCRYPTED FILE SHARING
Files Go’s offline file sharing is secured with WPA2 encryption, providing more secure file transfer.

BACKUP FILES TO THE CLOUD
If you want to keep a file forever, select it from the Files menu and back it up to Google Drive or any other cloud storage app.

EFFICIENT, EFFECTIVE STORAGE MANAGEMENT
Files Go takes less than 6MB of storage on your phone. And there’s no malware or bloatware to affect your phone’s performance.

Really nice so far, but rather basic. For instance it needs to show "all apps" including ones that are installed on the manufacturer "partition", such as facebook installed in the Samsung root. In order for me to clear caches of all apps, i need to go back to use the stock app settings section. Defeats the purpose of needing this app. However, i believe Google will eventually make this app the 'standard' so i will keep it installed, anticipating future updates. Full Review

Following improvements are required: 1. Entire split of storage space by different media, app and system files 2. Preview feature before deleting media and document files 3. Recover option in case of accidental deletion 4. Option to set up automatic cleaning reminders or auto cleaning at scheduled times 5. Option to directly upload files to YouTube/GooglePhotos/GoogleDrive etc... Full Review

We'd like to have a perfect file manager and sharing tool. If you can add back up option,it will be better as we can't always download on Play Store due to poor data connection. Send and receive bar should be placed over other things. I appreciate this update as it changed send and receive display. Thank you so much, Sundar Pichai et al. Full Review

One ⭐ only for design. But other features not working properly. Like we find some duplicate files but don't compare between 2 and more files. How we know your app find app files is duplicate. And add trash for backup safety. And many more thing if you want you.... i don't believe google Engineer devlop this type of cheap tools app. First time i found error in google products. Full Review

Great little app to easily remove junk and free up lots of space. I never had this much space free in my device in the last three years. Used several apps that claim to do this but would duck the blood out of battery in the process and in reality would not do much. This one is easy on battery and is effective on space freeing process Full Review

I DIDN'T KNOW THAT CLEANING MY PHONE COULD BE SUCH A FUN PROCESS. everytime I delete something, a small animation of a creature plays. And it's also too smart, it knows meme files! And categorizes very good Full Review

Well I am impressed. They memory management of the app is superb. They show what you want to see means the really unused files are just popped up in front of me. Just long press and it can open any supported file. Selecting file by size or date wise makes your preference more clear. Really a good app that without the ADDS. Full Review

I'm really disappointed and caught in a nightmare. It ask to move files yo SD card so that I can free up 650mb, so I do that. But after that, the files I moved were not opening..I don't know what to do. I want a solution for this. I felt Google won't disappoint me this time.. Full Review

This is a wonderful file and storage app made by the good folks at Google. Not only can you quickly view how much space you have on your device but also quickly remove unused apps, large and small files as well as duplicates. This app is highly recommended if you worry about space on your device. Full Review

Transfers files via bluetooth...I don't think that's a good choice. Why not Wi-Fi direct? And media files not showing up from the folders which are either hidden or contain a .nomedia file and an option for sharing files directly to google drive is also missing. Its a good app but needs improvement. Full Review

It's Google. I like it. However, it advises me to rid myself of my SD Maid key as an unused app. The key gives me the full app (paid for). I'd like some way to stop this from appearing. Otherwise - an excellent app for freeing-up needed space. Full Review

I would give 5 stars, BUT, currently as the program is currently released there's no way to select downloaded files and move them to separate folders. As in, download a file and creat a separate folder and then move said file into the folder. If such a thing is edited into the app or if it already is and I'm just stupid then I'll add 5 stars.

A great phone cleaner that's not spammy and doesn't make grand claims about boosting performance. This one actually does do a really good job freeing up space and surfaces a lot of things you can very easily miss that are consuming your precious internal storage. Now if Google would make it find and remove stray folders left by uninstalled apps and give a full file browser instead of the whole category thing, even if the file browser were a separate app, it would be perfect.

Interface face is fast and easy. Although it is good app but we expect lot more when product from Google. It should have some features to delete hidden junk files and unused default apps. It is basically a ROM and memory card cleaner. It has nothing to do with RAM. Full Review

Just be clear this isn't an app that clears out junk files or move apps to your SD card so you can fit more apps on your phone. It is an app that is designed to save phone space by moving things like pictures and videos to your SD card and showing apps you don't use so you can choose if you want to delete them. tl;dr IT IS NOT A CLEANER APP BUT IT DOES HELP YOU STAY ORGANIZED.

Easy to use and cleans up super fast. My biggest gripe is that it ended up removing app icons for a bunch of apps and now it's difficult to see which app is which since all the icons it removed just show the green Android robot with no name. Full Review

Good idea but still a lot of work needed to be perfect. Some files are still showing in the app after being deleted. Free up space should give you the option to transfer to SD instead of deleting only. Transfering to SD does not let you choose the folder on the SD card. I'll follow this up but right now it's pointless. Full Review

Some nice features! But NOT a File Manager. There's a folder entitled "APPS", but it isn't loading even one of my apps! Big frustration! The Files-Go description states the following features: "Erase Unused Apps, Clear Your Cache and More." As well as not loading any of my apps, there's no Cache Cleaner, as promised, either. Supposed to tap on Storage, as directed, for "Clear Cache" to appear. Nothing available in Settings, to activate either function. Read Help info ... But doesn't explain. Guess I'll keep for a little while, to see if it's been fixed. Full Review

Great file manager. Gives u suggestions what to delete. It's pretty useful. Small in size.i thing is disappointing that it doesn't show "file info" option. If it will be included in the future then this will be the best file manager. Thanks Google team Full Review

It's an intelligent app that suggests what you may not want to use based on your usage data. Then it asks you if you want to delete the data to make space on your phone. I last love it very much so far. Full Review

Definitely the best file manager available brought by the brilliant team of Google. It uses clever ML stack to filter unnecessary files and bring up in one corner to remove. On first install, it cleared 5gb of unnecessary files from my phone. With 16gb of fixed storage and the scare necessity to manage space for offline use, this, my friend is the best app I've ever used. Thank You. Full Review

Very basic app design. Please add graph to see what area occupies more space. Atleast that would be helpful. It doesn't have anything by which it can be different from others. Lot's of other apps perform the same function then why this??? Full Review

Overall nice app, however i feel that bluetooth should be turned off automatically when a session is disconnected. It should also provide a method to host our files on local server and someone who doesn't have this app can receive files using localhost address Full Review

It's great! It frees up space on my phone which only has 3.9GB of space that I can use (Android 6.0 is taking the rest) and because there is free space, there is not the 'Internal storage running out' notification and I can update my apps and games. Full Review
