Offline Sharing in Google Files Go Now Up To 4 Times Faster

By Nitish Singh / June 25, 2018

With expandable storage becoming rare in mobile devices, Google Files Go is a solid file management app that allows users to optimize their storage. The app is receiving a new update that can make offline file sharing up to 4 times faster between two devices. The app’s offline share feature allows users to transfer files via a Wi-Fi connection between two devices without requiring any bandwidth or internet connectivity.

The update also adds a “Share” tab to the app makes using the app much easier. Users need to own devices with at least Android 5.0 (Lollipop) to get access to the new features. The update allows two devices to connect via Wi-Fi in five seconds and using technology like 5GHz Wi-Fi bands, file transfer speeds can go up to 490 Mbps. To get access to the high speeds, both users need to have devices that support 5GHz Wi-Fi bands. All transfers are encrypted and secured by the app making Files Go a highly reliable means of offline file transfer.

Other than offline file sharing, the app is also capable of recommending files to users that can be safely deleted to free up storage. Old photos, duplicate images, cache files and unused apps are recommended for deletion or backup using Google Photos to cloud storage. The app also includes a storage monitor that can be used to track used and free storage on your phone or tablet. Users can also move files from internal storage to SD cards using the app to free up space using the built-in file management system.

The new update makes Google Files Go an extremely compelling file sharing app. What do you think of the Files Go app? Let us know in the comment section below. Get instant updates on TechNadu’s Facebook page, or Twitter handle.
