Offline sharing now four times faster in 'Files Go'

Google on Wednesday released a major upgrade to the "Files Go" app's feature for sharing files securely and four times faster with the nearby people without requiring any mobile data.

Nearby sharing is now available in its own dedicated tab called "Share". This tab has a simplified and smoother interface, and it works on any Android phone from the latest Google Pixel back to Android 5.0 (Lollipop), the company said in a statement.

"Files Go" is a storage manager that helps users free up space on their phones, find files faster and shares them offline with others.

"Files Go" picks the fastest method of sending files available on the phone, such as 5GHz Wi-Fi Direct to get the highest transfer speeds possible.

It helps you verify that you are connecting to the right person and encrypts all your transfers for additional security, the company said.
