Google’s first real attempt at a file management app has been more obsessed with autopiloting the process rather than making it easy to actually manage files. Still, Files Go is from Google and it’s pretty darn official.
Well, seeing as how it’s from Google, perhaps Google can make it more Google. The company has announced an update to the Files Go app so that it links seamlessly to Google Photos so that pictures and video that’s already been backed up (in many cases, automatically) to the cloud, Files Go will automatically flag those files to be deleted off of local storage.
Users can also search the name of files and see the specific locations of duplicate files so that they can choose which file in which location they prefer be deleted.
Files Go is just one app in the native suite provided for Android Go phones — those running with less than 1GB of RAM.
