Fake WhatsApp brief for Android Dodges Google Play review Process

Google Files Go

For those not familiar, aside from simply letting you explore your files, Files Go helps you clear up space by deleting unused apps, duplicate photos, and large files.

If you accidentally downloaded the app, make sure that you report it immediately to Google.

Google has silently started testing a new app called "Files Go" to provide Android users with a unified solution for all their storage management and wireless file transfer requirements. You can't, for example, access the device's root folder or even copy and paste files.

The app was briefly available on the Google Play Store before it was taken offline. As such, Files Go helps users get the most out of their phone's storage. According to now-pulled Play Store images, the app is meant to transfer files wirelessly, even without an internet connection, much like Apple's AirDrop tech.

That said, the app isn't a full-fledged file manager. We have not tried the app yet to see how the feature works in practice. If you have downloaded a lot of files, you can go to the Storage tab and delete those files. The app itself is 5.41MB, which means it is not as big as other file sharing apps like Xender.

From there, users are brought to a message-like interface that shows a history of file transfers.

Alongside the simple two-tab experience, the Files Go app has the integrated file transfer feature that allows you to send or receive files wirelessly. It will compile the list from the last month of apps that you have used and not used.

The app is available now for anyone who wants to give it a shot. Google also set up a new app review procedure to pinpoint violators as early as possible. We think that Google likely will be testing this app out for a bit longer before the official release happens. Be warned, there could be some issues and glitches since this is not the final release and was a test version.
