Google Adds Faster Search Option And Google Photos Compatibility To Files Go

Google has updated its file management app, Files Go to add a faster file searching experience for the users. Now, the Android users can search any file on their phone using Files Go like how they do on Google search. This means you just need to enter the filename in the search bar and the app will get you the file.

In addition, Google mentioned that the app also supports the autocomplete functionality and saves the user’s search history for serving instant results. The new feature works even in the offline mode, users just need to tap the search icon and enter the desired file name under the files tab.

In addition, now the Files Go also helps the users in detecting the duplicate files stored in the phone. The app shows the duplicate files and asks the users to delete them to free up the phone’s storage. However, users can see the duplicate file location before deleting them by long pressing the file thumbnail shown by the app.

In order to solve the storage issue, the Files Go now works even with Google photos and tells the users about the photos already being backed up by the app. The app asks the users to delete the backed up images to save the phone from getting into low storage situations. The Files Go app was launched by Google back in November 2017. These updates from the company may add minor features to the app, but these will definitely help an Android user to organize the phone’s files efficiently.
