Google is testing a new app, called “Files Go”, that helps you manage storage smartly by keeping your phone organized and clean. It lets you delete app caches and points out larger files in your storage, and it also recognizes and helps you remove spam and duplicate images.
Additionally, Files Go detects apps that you aren’t using often and gives you the option to uninstall them with the push of a button. There’s also a file manager that includes the ability to send files offline using your device’s hotspot.
Here’s the rundown from Google Play. Said listing was mysteriously pulled from the Play Store as I was writing this article, by the way. But, have no fear. We have a download link for you below.
As I mentioned, the Play Store link went dead. It was there when I started writing this article but disappeared shortly after. That’s likely due to this being an unreleased app that’s being tested by Google employees and their family and friends.
But, you’re in luck! Our friends at Android Police – where we discovered this tidbit – happen to have an APK file you can download right now. You can grab it and give it a try for yourself with the link below.
Remember to set your phone to allow installation of apps from unknown sources before installing.

I’ve held off on using the official Play Store link for now, as it’s broken. I’ll update this post once it’s live again.
