Google intros Files Go, a free file manager for Android

Google recently introduced Files Go, a free Android app that'sdesigned to help you "manage storage smartly and keep your phone clean andorganized." The app isn't officially released, but it's already listed onGoogle Play, being compatible with all devices running Android 5.0 or later.Unfortunately, at this time, Google Files Go is available only as part of anearly access program, which is "currently full."


Files Go is Google's very first file manager that has adedicated app in Play Store. Some of its features include the ability toseamlessly share files with friends while offline, a quick way to find documents, and smart suggestions related tofreeing up space.


The name of Files Go suggests that this app has something todo with Android Go - a Google initiative aimed at providing a superior Androidexperience on low-end phones. Of course, this shouldn't mean you can't try FilesGo on a high-end handset, assuming you'll be able to actually download the app- check out the source link below to see when the application will becomeavailable to everyone.    

Update: Google pulled Files Go from Play Store, but we assume the app will be back online soon.

Better late than never I suppose, but I've long ago taken to File Commander for this purpose.
