(Web Desk) - Tech giant Google is readying its latest Android app which will allow the smartphone users to share files and manage their storage without using internet. However it can be still be downloaded from APKMirror if you are willing to try out a beta software.

As you dive into the various sections, you can then filter the files by source for easier discovery, access, or deletion.

The ad-purpose app was masked to seem like a new Whatsapp update and was one of the many fake Whatsapp versions on Google Play Store reported by users in recent days. This app is both a storage management app and a way you can quickly transfer files using a wireless option. The top of the "Storage" feed prominently lists how much space is on your device. Importantly, Files Go would spot and remove spam as well as duplicate images to free up storage.

As expected of any self-respecting file manager app, Google Files Go app offers suggestions to users to help them delete apps and programs that are sparingly used and needlessly take up space.

Files Go is miles ahead of slow Bluetooth transfer and supports Android 5.0 devices and above. It will tell you Documents, Videos, Images, Downloads, and Received Files.

Moreover, it is best to read the description of the app so that you can determine if the features are listed based on your expectations.

Files Go is meant to be a smart storage app, as it includes features to remove unwanted items, duplicate files, and more.
