Google rolls out Files Go update with new share tab

Google’s File management app for Android smartphone, Files Go today hits an update. The new rollout fixes some earlier bugs and adds several more features. This is not the first time the Google rolls out new features to the app. But, the newly added features make it a better suite for file sharing and handling in a convenient way.

The earlier version of the app had the option to share files. But the app needed the users to manually send files individually, and the transfer rate was limited up to 125Mbps. With the latest addition, the users now can get a new tab, which specifically for the file sharing. Until now, the bottom bar was showing the Clean and Browse options. If you update the Files Go app to the latest version, you will start seeing a third tab named “Share.” It is like any other file sharing app, works similar to the¬†Xender, Shareit. You can privately send files between phones without internet, but over Wi-Fi. Both the users must have the Files Go installed on their phones.
