Files GO is the first official file manager from Google.

This file manager is thought to offer a slightly different experience because it focuses on freeing up space for large files, cached files and unused applications for more than 4 weeks (one month).

Structure of Files GO.

The first time we open Files GO, we notice two windows, Storage and Files
Storage Page:
Here are settings and tips for freeing space such as:

  • Clear cache apps
  • Release the space used by large files
  • Clear space in the download folder
  • Delete duplicate files
  • Uninstall unused 4 + + week applications (requires access to usage data)

Page Files:

In this page we have access to our files, but not in folders but organized by categories like: Downloads, Inbox, Images, Videos, Audio, Documents.

File transfer function between Wi-Fi Direct phones.

A super feature, in my view, is file transfer between phones without a wifi or Bluetooth connection.
The transfer is directly via the WI-FI Direct standard, which means RAPID TRANSFER between phones without wifi, bluetooth, 3g, 4g, etc; all the transfer is between the phones, which of course must be next to each other.

What's special about Files GO vs. other tabs?

To be fair, there are much more management functions. However, GO files have four great advantages:
1. Files GO is an official Google application
2. The usage data reaches Google, which is more confident than a no name developer.
3. The interface is super simple and focuses on the essentials (99% of users want this)
4. File transfer via WI-FI Direct goes concrete

Wi-Fi Direct Transfer Rate?

The maximum speed achieved with Wi-Fi Direct transfer was over 8 MB / s or 64 Mbps if you want.

  1. Hi Cisti

    Are you going to make a presentation, or a test at Firefox Quantum?

  2. Hello Cristi! Beautiful tutorial! Thank you for the things you show us everyday.

    I apologize that my question is not related to the tutorial.
    I have a question. Can you please help me?
    I have a laptop "HP EliteBook 8560w, Intel i7 Gen 2 2820QM 2.3 GHz reaches 3.4 GHz with Turbo, 8 GB DDR3, HDD 320 GB, nVidia Quadro 2000M 2GB, 15.6inch 1600x900px". For all components I have normal temperatures, when I use the processor in normal activities, eg: internet, applications, windows explorer, etc. reaches 50-60 degrees Celsius, more than 60 at a time. But when I play a game, for example I tested GTA V on it works well with 30fps at normal settings and the processor reaches 70,75 even 85 degrees Celsius. Is it normal because the processor is powerful? Can it burn?
    The laptop was recently purchased a few days ago as a kind of resealed type "refurbished" at a reduced price.

    Thanks to the team!
