Even though Google seems to be working on such app doesn't mean that it will be launched at all.

Google is testing out a new app which is called Files Go, and it is going to be a new storage management system for Android.

If you're an Android user, the chances are that you might be using a third-party file manager app to take care of all the files on your Android smartphone. The primary focus of the phone is to free up space on your phone, but it can also help keep your device organised, and it can recommend apps, spam, and duplicate files to remove so that your phone stays in tiptop shape. However, one thing which is still missing from a Stock Android build is a dedicated File Manager app. We've reached out to Google for more details and will update this post when we hear back. Android Police notes that Google ran an early access programme to pilot the app on specific devices.

As now this app is now in beta testing.

Files Go is a free download here on Google Play. If you want to receive files, just open the Files Go app and tap receive.

To target the next billion users, Google frequently makes apps that are optimized for developing markets around the world. It's more concerned with helping you find files and delete them than helping you organize your system. The UI shows a radar-like interface to initiate transfers between two devices - with the caveat that both devices needs Files Go to be installed. File sharing works similarly to Apple's AirDrop feature, meaning you won't need an internet connection to drop a file to a friend from your device to theirs. What File Manager do you use now on your smartphone? However, that did not last long, and soon enough people were not allowed to register anymore.

So the good news is that this app is available right now through the APK. Let us know in the comment section below. Be warned, there could be some issues and glitches since this is not the final release and was a test version.
