Descriptions


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.

    Ashish Shivram Poojary Published date: December 27, 2017

    Was searching for a nice app to help me delete multiple numbers of apps at once. Found this app which is made by Google itself. Downloaded it thinking that this app might be the most charming cleaner to start with. The setup was mind boggling. And finally, I found out the list of my apps and was marking them one by one. And suddenly, the app closed all by itself. I can't tell you how freaking irritating it felt. But, I am never installing this app ever again! Full Review

    Google never fails to create an excellent free app, compared to many others one tried this one is the best designed. It does all the digging up old files/apps for you and makes it so you only have to go through the list once to either delete or share files to other devices or cloud. Bonus: very cute little animations to make you feel accomplished at cleaning your phone! Thank you for ad free ♡ Full Review

    Sean Niles Published date: December 15, 2017

    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

    I had rated it 5 stars earlier. Now down to 3 because there is no way to open the phone memory and SD card separately. I don't know why they've given only the preorganized tabs for images, videos, etc ( the feature doesn't work well because I can't find a lot of my data in it). If the app lets me open the phone/SD card data as it is with the folders inside it, I'll change my ratings back to 5 Full Review

    Michael Clegg Published date: December 28, 2017

    It is a badly needed utility which makes the tedious job of deleting files easy and almost fun! All in all - a great app fully , deserving 4 out of 5 stars. The missing 5th star is due to a lack of a better preview of certain file types (for example - mp3, mp4 or pdf ). In order to make sure you really can/want to delete a file - one needs to have a deeper look at it. We hope that this could be implemented in the next app version. Full Review

    Ankit Rai Published date: December 28, 2017

    I think the app is nice! However, one has to be careful with its auto suggestion feature! Chances are, if not careful enough, it'll end up deleting those files which you want to keep. I suggest Google use it's machine learning magic to suggest only those files which aren't of my interest. Because classifying merely on the basis of low format doesn't qualify a file to be unworthy of space in my device! 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

    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

    Syed Hussaini Published date: December 15, 2017

    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

    Harsh Trivedi Published date: December 17, 2017

    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

    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

    Norman Grieve Published date: January 9, 2018

    Ok, so I looked at duplicate files first. I know I have lots of duplicate files cos of my method of sorting by event, day etc & then backing up from the main 'camera roll' to the cloud. This app showed me files it CLAIMED were duplicates but didn't SHOW me that they were duplicates. Also the original will always be the oldest so this app will always offer to delete an original. No thank you as there are too many risks in that strategy for me to blindly trust it. Full Review

    George Brindeiro Published date: December 31, 2017

    Seems very useful, gives you several uncommon suggestions as to what you can do to save space. I tried deleting duplicate files, however, and I couldn't figure out where each copy of the file is... Supposedly the newest copy of each duplicate is kept, but I can't find a PDF that was deleted for the life of me. Full Review

    Mathew George Published date: December 30, 2017

    The app doesn't have the ability to access the files on the SD card seamlessly. The app shows some set of confusing steps on how to access SD card. Not as good in functionality as ES file manager. Also it shows you pop ups for as little as 30 MB of space which is a little annoying. Maybe it is customizable but haven't checked. Full Review

    Rishik Suri Published date: January 11, 2018

    Would recommend for decluttering your phone, but sharing files is a bit of a no-go. For starters, no one around me uses it, so it's practically useless that way. The UI is also less user friendly as compared to, say, Share-It, the market leader. There's a lot of catching up to do, but I'm confident Google will go the extra mile. Overall, a good product.👍 Full Review

    Dinesh Kanakaraj Published date: December 18, 2017

    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

    Nitigya Bhandari Published date: January 7, 2018

    I really liked the app and there are many reasons for that. Firstly, its not Chinese like the famous ShareIt n that's the biggest reason cuz i don't like Chinese apps. So, i would like to request the Google team to make this app more popular and efficient than the ShareIt and other apps. Full Review

    This app has gone above and beyond. I've had a couple apps that cleaned space on my phone but nothing like this. This is a must have app for anyone who uses Google Allo and wants to get rid of the GIFs that pile up on your phone. Full Review

    Ian Forshaw Published date: December 16, 2017

    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

    Google hardly fails to amaze you. But here there should be an option to viewand manage your sd card and internal storage data just like a file explorer, that would be amazing. Otherwise would have rated it 5⭐ Full Review

    I can see the best file manager in this google app. File managers are no longer bleak and tiresome. Very attractive app interface. This is fun. Will comment on the functionality after at least a week's usage. Seems like Google has brought out the best app in this segment as well. Full Review

    No wonder Google is taking the world by storm. Everything they touch turns to Gold. This app, files go beta is NO EXCEPTION!!! The app does EVERYTHING it says it will do plus a WHOLE LOT MORE!!! THIS IS A MUST HAVE APP IF YOU HAVE AN ANDROID AND NEED AND/OR WANT TRUE, SIMPLE, AND EASY FILE MANAGING. Sorry for the yelling, I Just realized my caps lock was on. PLEASE FORGIVE ME, LOL!!! Anyway, thanks for taking the time to read my review. I own a small business, and all my communications are done via phone, tablet, or rarely, laptop. Ive tried and used fairly a TON of file, and/or document apps, and this one by far is the best. CHEERS TO YOU ALL. MERRY CHRISTMAS AND A HAPPY NEW YEAR TO YOU AND YOURS🎄🎉🎋🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸 Full Review

    Works perfectly in other fields but file transfer is a disappointment. Not only is it very slow to connect, it didn't sent from android 6 to android 7.1. Can't even match ShareIt which is so rich in adverts and all sorts of frightening little reminders to download unknown ram-eaters. Full Review

    Alasdair King Published date: December 29, 2017

    This is a truly remarkable app. I only installed it today, but it jas already helped me clear out hundreds of megabytes of unwanted files. As it is a google app it is well layed out, easy to use and is, as far as i know, advert free. This is a great app and strongly recommend it. Full Review

    Kuldeep Jain Published date: December 18, 2017

    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

    After installing and moving some files my micro sd card will no longer work in my phone...but it works in an adapter on my laptop. Had to wipe phone and put in a new micro sd card to get it to read again..obviously I won't be using this again. Full Review

    Jay Telford Published date: January 2, 2018

    It's an okay app but very basic. Would have been better if it was just a file manager app but as it is, it's pretty useless unless you're really struggling for space - even then though, it's easier to just manually uninstall apps you don't use by long pressing on the app and dragging it to the delete/uninstall option.

    Nice app by Google... i want one more thing that i don't want to touch my apps section.. so please give one option so that i can make this app only media sharing or media cleaner app..i mean app related option should be in setting menu as per user choice.. thanks Full Review

    Edgar Rojas Published date: December 28, 2017

    It's not a file manager but a CLEANER! The app perfectly cleans your junk files. However, talking about the tools for managing files, it is the worst app I have ever seen. I will continue using Motorola's File Manager while this Google's app improves (if it does in the future) Full Review

    Jacob Hetle Published date: January 17, 2018

    In case anybody was wondering, it's basically just an app that shows you all your files in specific categories and grants you the ability to permanently delete them. If you want to get rid of them. I find this very convenient all your stuff together as opposed to going through each file folder in your file manager to do so. Full Review

    Dronz Rock Published date: January 20, 2018

    Good simple file manager . smart organisation and sorting features. But a bit disappointed when realised that this file manager does not have a search file option . The app is not smart enough to pin point the file that the user is looking for. So its always better to keep a dedicated search function Full Review

    Martijn Sluijtman Published date: December 28, 2017

    Does what it should do according to the description, the only thing I would like to see being added to the list of removable files, are the .zip files containing ad related files. Now I still have open another app to remove those. And for some reason it doesn't recognize temp zip archives as, well, temp files. Full Review

    Akshay Bhole Published date: December 20, 2017

    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

    Jeffy Ze French Published date: December 19, 2017

    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

    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

    Nice! I was able to clean up quick. However, I'm not sure if Files Go really "cleans" my phone because I also have another cleaning app and when I open it after Files Go, it shows that there are still remaining cache/junk. 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

    Simple. Does not pretend to be anything more than it is which is a tool to review and delete potentially useless material on your phone. I would have liked to have seen a little more file data for each file to make it easier to assess for deletion. Full Review
