Google gives Android Files Go a big speed upgrade: Share 100 photos in 5 seconds


Google's popular Android file-management system, Files Go, now offers faster file transfers, faster connections, and more secure file sharing. Google has released a "major upgrade" to the app's feature for sharing files with people nearby. Files Go was originally designed to help users in India deal with limited storage and patchy network coverage, but has since also been launched in China and is available globally with about 10 million users. The app leaked out in November and Google has been steadily updating it with new features, and testing them via a beta channel. The app offers a snapshot of available storage space, tools to free up space, and a peer-to-peer feature that lets users share files or apps with friends who are nearby without needing the internet.
