Google launches Files Go Beta for offline sharing and file management

So Files Go is essentially an amalgamation of three services: system cleanup, file-management, and file transfers.

Right now Files Go is in early beta and it crashed a few times on our Google Pixel, so it's definitely not stable just yet. Now available as a preview, Files Go lets you manage and share files and free up space on your smartphone or tablet.

File Go's ability to work offline should be helpful for a variety of people, especially business users who are working from the field or another spot with less-than-reliable cell service.

Files Go is a free download here on Google Play. And it does it all with Google's card-based user interface.

The in-app features include filters to select and view files, send-receive options and freeing up space on phone with smart cards.

Google is pretty proud of the fact that this is a "light" app, announcing in Files Go's description on Google Play that it only needs under 6MB of space.

Upon launching Files Go, you will be brought to a main screen that is split into two tabs: Storage and Files. The top of the "Storage" feed prominently lists how much space is on your device. 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.

Android 5.0 users would be able to download and install the app in near future. It also has a handy file send/receive feature that can be done with another nearby phone even if you don't have a data connection.

At the bottom of the Files tab, you'll see a section called Transfer Securely Without Internet. Simply tap the Send button, then allow access to your device, and enter your name.

Files Go is still technically an "unreleased" beta, meaning there may well be bugs aplenty. Users can also delete, manage, and search files.
