Files by Google: Clean up space on your phonefor Android



Simple space management

Files by Google is a tool that cleans, shares, and backs up files. It’s an all-in-one choice for those in need of a maintenance app for their phones.

An app to boost your phone’s speed

Files by Google is a handy application that cleans and speeds up your phone while protecting your files in the process.

It isn't easy to find a good file manager, but Files by Google is a great tool that tackles the problem. While it does boast capabilities of renaming and moving or deleting files, it goes beyond this.

The most useful part of this app is the option to free up storage space. Any device, regardless of the storage size, will eventually fill up with useless caches and files or apps, and you can delete these to reclaim space.

Once you delete this useless info, and order returns to the storage of your mobile device, you can locate files quicker and easier than before. This is great if you're constantly downloading ebooks or movies and have the famous “storage full” pop-up ruining your experience.

If you've downloaded a movie or taken pictures you want to share with friends, you'll find the offline sharing functionality by Files by Google especially useful.

To ensure that you won't lose any important info if your phone is damaged, lost, or stolen; Files by Google can back up your data and files stored on your device. This way, if you change devices, you won't lose precious memories or selfies.

Backing up may, however, risk corrupting the files if the process does not complete properly. If this happens, you’ve lost these items permanently. It’s important to be careful when following through with a backup.

Where can you run this program?

This application is available for Android 5.0 and up.

Is there a better alternative?

No. There is no other file manager that has as many features like this app does. A simpler alternative is ES File Explorer, but it only manages files.

Our take
