Android's popular file management system, Files Go, has been upgraded to offer faster file transfers, faster connections and safer file sharing.
Google has released a "significant upgrade" to the app's features, especially for sharing files with people close by.
Files Go was originally designed to help users in India to cope with limited storage space and network latency. Since then, however, it has been released in China and made available globally using about 10 million users.
Since then, Google has been constantly updating it by adding new features that try them through a beta channel.
What the upgraded application brings
The nearby file sharing or nearby sharing feature now has its own tab called "Share", which comes to make it easier to access.
Google also says that linking with other nearby users will be much faster. The application will automatically use the fastest available channel to upload files, so if Wi-Fi Direct is available at 5GHz, it will automatically use it.
According to Google, some users will be able to transfer files at speed 490Mbps or about four times faster than the previous 125Mbps limit. At this speed, Google estimates that users can send 100 "high quality photos" (original quality) in less than five seconds.
The application also uses WPA2 encryption to protect file-sharing files for sharing.
As for space saving, Google had already notified the app so users can delete photos from their Google Photos uploaded device.
