Great free app from Google you’ll want to download now

Our smartphones hold everything in our lives it seems. From pictures, music, to your daily planner, and financial transactions. All of this data takes up a lot of space.

There’s nothing more annoying than going to click a picture, and you get a notice saying you are out of memory. Unless you can slap in a new memory card on the spot, your choices are limited.

But Google has a new, free answer for you.

Files Go by Google

Files Go is a new storage manager for Android devices that helps you free up space on your phone, find files, and share them securely, offline, with others around you.

In the app, in just a few taps, you can delete old photos and memes from your chats. You can find and remove duplicate files and unused apps. Oh, and it offers an easy way for you to clear your cache.

Beta testers on average saved 1GB of space in the first month alone.

File Sharing

One of the coolest features is file sharing. It allows you to share pictures, documents, videos, and even apps with other people nearby that have the app. And it’s pretty fast too at 125 Mbps.

It does not use your data plan so it won’t cost you a cent to share large files. And the best part, it uses WPA2 encryption to make sure it’s a secure transfer.

And if you want to keep a certain file forever, you can back them up to your Google Drive or any other cloud storage app.

You can download the free Files Go app from the Google Play Store.

If you started using the Files Go app, tell us in the comments how much space you have saved!
