Three new ways to manage files and free up space with Files Go

Files Go is our new app for freeing up storage on your phone. Since its launch in December, more than 10 million people have installed it and cleaned up more than 1.1 gigabytes of space on average.

Today, we’ve added three new features so managing files is even faster and more enjoyable:

SD cards: We’ve expanded our SD card support since many of you use SD cards to backup important files. With one tap in the list or grid view, you can easily filter to see files stored on your SD card.

Tablets: Files Go now runs on tablets so you can manage storage and transfer files between your small and big screen Android devices without using any data.

Opening files in other apps: You can also customize which apps open your files with our new “Open with” flow. This should give you greater flexibility and control when handling all types of files. For example, to open PDF files, you may want to use your favorite PDF viewing app and that’s now possible.

With these new features, we hope it’s even easier to free up space, find files faster and share files offline with Files Go.

SD Card Files Go
The “Show SD Card only” feature makes it easier to find only those files saved on your SD card.
