The beta app has now returned to Google Play where it's listed as "Files Go Beta: Free up space on your phone (Unreleased)". 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. As of now, it is unclear when the full version of the app will be released. Besides, the Files tab also lets you Send and Receive files offline through a Wi-Fi hotspot connection. All the files are sorted in sections: Downloads, Received Files, Images, Videos, Audio, and Documents.
This is a beta app, and Google notes that there could be some bugs and issues that arise while using the app.
Upon launching Files Go, you will be brought to a main screen that is split into two tabs: Storage and Files.More news: Iran says resignation of Lebanese PM will create tension in region
Android 5.0 users would be able to download and install the app in near future. Thankfully, you can download this app right now as an APK even though it was pulled from Google Play Store. There are also other suggestions, including clearing app caches, deleting apps that aren't frequently used, and removing "spam & duplicate images". You can select individual items or everything and hit the delete button at the bottom to free up storage. For those who use Shareit, you will find File Go app similar to it. To use the app, both sender and receiver need to have the app opened and use the Send and Receive file option.
Going by the naming scheme of the program, Google Files Go looks to be a part of the Android Go program that was announced at Google I/0 2017. One screenshot hints that file transfers work via Bluetooth, though that's not confirmed. The app may be unstable for now as it is still under beta test. It will compile the list from the last month of apps that you have used and not used.
