Files by Google is a file management app that helps you:
✨ Free up space with cleaning recommendations
🔍 Find files faster with search and simple browsing
↔️ Share files offline with others, fast and without data
☁️ Back up files to the cloud to save space on your device

In just a few taps, you can free up space more quickly and easily than ever: delete old photos and memes from chat apps, remove duplicate files, delete unused apps, clear your cache and more.

Use Files to see how much free space is left on your phone and SD card. Easily transfer files to an SD card to free up your phone’s storage, straight from the app. Or use the integrated file cleaner to get more space on the phone.

You will always know what you’re deleting; we don’t hide behind complicated terms and phrases. Select only what you want to remove and keep the rest. It’s your photos, your videos and your files, so you are in charge.

Use Files to keep enough memory, so that your phone keeps running smoothly. You get regular prompts to remove junk or temporary files, which helps you get more storage immediately.

Get helpful suggestions of files to delete before you run out of space. The recommendation from the Files app gets smarter the more that you use it.

Save time looking for photos, videos and documents on your phone. Files uses filters rather than folders so your stuff is organised more intuitively. Files by Google is the file manager and storage browser that helps you find what you’re looking for fast.

Search for your files or simply navigate to them through categories and filters. View, delete, move, rename or share any files. Sort them by file size to understand what’s taking up space. Browse all the GIFs that you have. Find and share that video that you downloaded last week. All of this with a few taps.

Share your pictures, videos, documents or apps with others nearby who also have the app. With fast speed up to 480 Mbps, it’s fast, free and it works without the Internet, so it doesn’t cost mobile data. Just pair up your phone with anyone nearby who has the Files app.

Files’ offline file sharing is secured with WPA2 encryption, providing a more secure file transfer. Files app uses Bluetooth to set up encrypted and direct, fast Wi-Fi connection, so that you can transfer app APK or large files in seconds, and send videos or pictures to your friends. Safe and secure.

If you want to keep a file forever, select it from the Files menu and back it up to Google Drive or any other cloud storage app. Save them forever without using space in your phone.

If you run out of storage on your phone, simply transfer large files or videos to your SD card if you have one. With a few clicks, you can clean up your phone and fully use the SD card. That leaves your internal storage free and your phone faster.

Files app uses less than 10 MB of storage on your phone. And there’s no malware or bloatware to affect your phone’s performance.

While taking up very little storage on your device, Files does three things in one:
1) Free up space – Clean junk files and cache, boost your mobile phone or tablet as you clean up the phone memory, and optimise your smartphone performance.
2) Find files fast – Browse your storage and find everything fast without being an expert in file management.
3) Share files – Send pictures, share videos, transfer large files or app APKs. All of this with super-fast speed up to 480 Mbps over an encrypted, direct Wi-Fi network.

App ChangeLog

  • - Receiving transferred files to SD card if internal storage is limited.
  • - Minor bug fixes and improvements.

    I find this app very easy to use. You can simply choose a category of things you have saved on your phone and start clearing some things out. I love to have my phone organised and I can see this being an app I'll use regularly.

  2. James R. Reel-avatar

    apk files by Google is one of the best idea Google have ever come up with! Reason being is because thereS SOOO much j⅞nk out there., so many viruses so much smaller and not only that but, come on guys think about one thing just one thing... There a lot of people out there that are getting software updates and it's not going through due to lack of ROM or insufficient memory! I say you could add a little sumthin'-sumthin to Files by Google::: teach beginners HOW to navigate files!!

    apk download Very limited functions. No bulk copy move files or folders. It's kind of just for viewing.

    download The app is wonderful!! Its uncomplicated, user friendly, and best of all it actually presents the clutter for your approval AND EXPLAINS WHY IT SHOULD BE DELETED!! I like being a part of the process rather than just blindly tapping the screen and being informed my phone is clean etc as is the case with many of those "one click" cleaners--i do we know they actually do anything!? With this app you know whats being deleted and you know why! i expect no less than the best from Google.

    files go by google clean up space on your phone "An app that takes up space on my phone... whose sole function is to free up space on my phone? Hmm." That was my first thought. "This seems illogical." So far, I've freed up 7GB. And I've only had this phone for about 10 months. 6GB were videos, and I didn't even delete all of them. This app is seriously awesome. It even recommends duplicate files and leftover junk files from removed apps and such. There's no reason not to get this; it's so quick and intuitive.

  7. legendary 99-avatar

    files go by google free up space on your phone If you don't have time to manage your files and this is a really good file manager it saves you time and it's really really easy to use.

    Amazing app!!! I looked everywhere for an app to be able to print my text, as screenshots took several hours and couldnt find where i was at. Yes, you have to pay a few dolars, but its so worth it. I was able to print and submit my records to the judge easily. Thank you to the developers.

  10. Chris Conkright-avatar

    Absolutely the most useful, intuituve, simple, and complete file manager I've ever used. The file sharing function alone is worth the price of admission; a fantastic and useful tool. Deleting of duplicate files is not the nerve-wracking experience it can be elsewhere, simply due to the way the app displays the original being saved as the user confirms the deletion of dupes. So many more reasons I love this app. Just a great tool. Props to the development team. Thank you for this gift.

  11. Dylan Moore-avatar

    At the bottom it is really just a files app, and it does well as a files app. However, it does even more than a regular file app can do. It gives you suggestions on what files to delete and most of the time all the suggestions are good and I delete most the files it shows. In my opinion it is the best app for managing and deleting files.

  12. Lisa Blaze-avatar

    Very helpful when my kids aka the "electronically inclined" have moved out. I'm certain without it I would erase the important files that are needed for the phone to function. I haven't the slightest clue how electronics work... This app makes it very CLEAR for anyone to understand what's going on. Thank you, to the brain behind the app. Very helpful.

  13. uju okonkwo-avatar

    I love this app!! I can finally remove ES from my device. Update: I've had to reinstall ES explorer. I found that after unzipping a music file using the Files by Google app, it stays within the app and won't sync into my Google Music player. I don't understand why this is the case, but I'm sure I don't like it. It's also difficult to locate files to upload to Web pages. I find this annoying too.

  14. Abhiram Baiju-avatar

    In my life, it is very useful. Before I installing this app, wheny phone's storage is full I will take my PC, Laptop and delete the unwanted files. It was very tough. After using this app, I am satisfied. I gave four stars because, the file explorer is not user-friendly. I am requesting to solve the issue as possible. Regards, Abhiram

  15. Asad Hussain-avatar

    Very great app in cleaning junk, old, obsolete and useless files😄. Very satisfied.

    Very easy to use no navigation, hardly any. Maybe put in c.p.u cooler. Or background apps monitor.

    This app is God send. It is the same problem for everyone filling up with the duplicate videos and images received from multiple WhatsApp groups and it becoming a wastage of time and energy (chore) having to delete them at regular intervals. Also the mobile gets bogged down due to memory filling up. Finally, we are blessed to have an app like this that saves time, energy and storage too!

  18. Andrew Jewett-avatar

    Previous versions of Android (prior to pie) came with a real file manager/browser allowing you access the folder hierarchy, rename files, create folders, select multiple files and move them, just like you can on a desktop PC. Some of that functionality is gone or hard to find. By default, it's just one flat list of files with a search bar. You can no longer move or delete multiple files. I miss the previous version. (This review is for the Android9 version of "Files".)

  19. Samuel Sparenga-avatar

    Samuel Sparenga


    This app is nearly perfect, with just one thing: cache. Every time I go to my settings, I always spend like 10 minutes trying to clean up the caches of every app I use. If Google could at least give the option to clear cache alongside the junk files, this is a perfect file manager.

  20. Muhammad Safee Ur Rehman Barlas-avatar

    This app is available in Nokia 8. My phone memory was full and it gave me several options like delete junk files, memes, duplicates etc. One of the options was to delete 19GB data and it said it has already been backed up and I could view that even after deleting. I clicked this option and tried to view which files have been backed up but it didn't help to see those files. But it clearly said that files have been backed up, so I deleted and got 19GB memory. But now I cant find those anywhere. 😭

  21. David Wright-avatar

    So far I'm really liking this app, it has the features necessary to keep my device in good shape. I had rated four stars, but after using it for a while I felt it deserved five stars. Further, for being a free app.. without any ads I felt compelled to add some more positive notes to my previous comments. While I know that no app is entirely perfect, this app does really do a good job of what it's designed to do. With every update this app is getting better and better!

  22. [ Dotty ]-avatar

    Super helpful! If you have no space in your phone, you can totally go and use this app! It makes me feel safe thats its made by google, which has been nothing but helpful to its users. And now, I don't have to bother searching ALL my files. It doesn't get rid of stuff that includes social media like you'd think. (Atleast how I thought) You can choose whether to delete those files, its more like suggestions on what to delete. I had 32 GB (which is the maximun) now, I have 20! I am so greatful!

  23. Janine Roy-avatar

    Fabulous app that actually does what it says it's going to do! No more messages saying that my storage is full (or almost full) and to delete some files, where I then have to painstakingly go through all my files and decide what I can delete! I absolutely LOVE THIS APP because it does it all for me! It searches, it finds and it then categorizes what should be deleted, and it is then up to you to check yes or no.... BRILLIANT

  24. Dan Corpse-avatar

    Since the 28 Feb update, it didn't show any junk files at all! Before the update it always worked fine for me. It was my favorite file manager before, but this time it made me so disappointed! Please fix the bug at next update. ---------------------------------- Thanks for reply, I know that junk file card will not show if the junk files are small. But when I switch to the old version of the app, I can see junk files abt 50mb, and once I update to the latest version the card does not show.

  25. Surya k-avatar

    Initially it was deleting junk files & duplicate files but that option has gone away with the update.

  26. Kirsten Bowman-avatar

    Did exactly what it says- no hidden agenda, no hidden sponsored ads, just good ol' side assistant who let's you know when there's duplicate files, unused apps wasting space, clears up junk files, shows you how much space you have and could have if you do what is suggested by your assistant... It does all that and more and still runs everything by you first before taking any action! Bravo!

  27. Ahmed Hassan-avatar

    Hello, Google File Manager. I hope to add two important features to this wonderful app. First: Add the (FTP) file transfer protocol connection feature to Google file manager. Second, add LAN connection support feature to connect to desktop devices besides opening and management multimedia files for desktop devices which are connected to the network. This features is making Google file manager awesome. Thanks.

  29. Rhonda Roszell-avatar

    Very good app and thank you for no ads! I have 1 question on a minor issue, is the app supposed close or stay open when you exit the app? For me, it stays open and running and it will not close even after a cell reboot. I looked thru the help and read everything here in google store and could it find anything on issue. It is working but it wont close and I'm always running out of memory and storage. Do you have any suggestions?

  30. Kevofwar227-avatar

    Was a good app but recently it has started removing my downloads. I have downloaded content that I wanted to keep when I found it all gone. Within minutes of downloading my content it removes my download. This is annoying because I wanted to keep the downloads I had or I would have deleted them myself. To prevent this from happing I back up my files to drive and disabled the app. Please fix, I like the way this app works but I don't like this glitch.

  31. K.B. Tidwell-avatar

    Update: Thanks for fixing my requests! Five stars! I had to knock off a couple stars for aggravating factors. I understand that the app needs to point out things that could be deleted. I got a card suggesting memes to get rid of. Cool. I reviewed them and got rid of a few. IMMEDIATELY upon checking the app again I got the same recommendation. Give me a "don't ask again" checkbox or at least wait a week or so to repeat the same friggin' question. Geesh.

    My experience with this app is best ever best with compare to other for management of internal and another data functions.

  33. Marty-avatar

    Every action such as moving or deleting files takes a several seconds to be completed. Why? Every other file manager does the same action faster than this one. I would like to see "folder size" instead of "last modified" detail at exploring my storage. I am using this app only due to no ads. I think that you should give users more options in settings if you don't want to miss them. :)

  34. Sanat Savanal-avatar

    Files made it very easy for me to find, choose and delete numerous files on my phone. I found many that I'd even forgotten about. Best part is, I can see all the files in 1 location. I don't have to keep moving between the phone's File Manager folders to see what should be deleted and what should be kept. So far, a good experience. I'm definitely keeping this app.

  35. Varaus Trans-avatar

    It's the most amazing app I've ever experienced for managing my pictures, videos,audios in different folders. No ads at all so eventually using it becomes far better and easier without interruptions. Also the reminder for storage space is fab. I can go for deleting unwanted media as and when required without paying much attention towards it. Overall, it made my work easier and more worthy.

  36. Randy Adcock-avatar

    Filed by Google takes care of all my main concerns such as duplication of files, organization of files and folders and categorizing the data I have so I can keep the information on my phone just how I want, easy access and where I want to place it! So it's been great for me so far, zero complaints! 5 Star For Sure!

  37. Benjamin Case-avatar

    I love the concept of this application, The best part is that it's made by Google this is a application that let's you free up space on your Android mobile device. It also works as a file explorer even though it bugs me that drives aren't listed at the top of the Browse tab I still love it, like Google Drive it also works as a sharing application, witch let's you "Say Bye Bye to Email attachments and hello to real time collaboration." Thanks Google!

    This is very bad. The moving and copying speed of this app is just awful. Please do something. This app is overall great but lack in some small essential issues. The copying and moving speed of any large files is too slow as compared to mi files. And please don't reply me that your sd card may have slow speed. I am using class 10 samsung sd card. Please improve this, rest is fine.

  40. Al Rodriguez-avatar

    Best Cleaner and Optimiser for Android. Google really outdid itself with this application that comes built in all the latest versions of Android. I used to use third party optimisers and cleaners but they usually had problems with ads and bloatware, since Google came out with this brilliant first party app, Files by Google is all I use to keep my phone's memory and system optimised and cleaned.

    I love this app! It's very professional looking and the performance is exceptional as well. The app works so seamlessly with my Google Pixel that I usually forget that it isn't a system app. Thank you for creating such a smart app! It works wonders to help me, an entrepreneur and business Mom of 5, to keep my phone storage clean.

    I like the app would like to see the Bluetooth connection number to whom I am transferring and a notification on someone requesting a file. Also wish it would intergrate with contacts and had more options to move apps to the file system file system instead of saving them internal space. I like the cleaming, information is correct and easy to use. Also if it had some locking file for banking etc,,files and maybe link other accounts. Great potential to be a number 1 filing system.

  43. Lisa Kuchli-avatar

    I am part of the generation x and speaking for myself I have a hard time with some of the computer technology. I can do all the basics but if it requires more skill I have a very hard time. This app helps keep my phone safe without my needing to interfere which usually messes up my phone rather than improves it. I think many people from the baby boomers and generation x probably have similar experiences. The millennials have grown up with this technology and seem to do better with it as a whole.

  44. Michael Adams-avatar

    It is not only simple to use; it gives you options for how to view and use it. In other words, you can personalize it. It also reminds you that you may be building up too much unnecessary storage. I especially like this feature because I need reminders! When I have cleared the unneeded storage I always smile because it always gives a catchy quip that brightens my day!

  45. S Monello-avatar

    This seems like it would be an amazing manager, but of all things... If you need to move a file to your SD card it doesn't give any option for which folder you want to save or move to! It just dumps the file to your SD. That's probably sufficient for most people, but I use my phone for work and have a ridiculous amount of media. Proper organization options is a must.

  46. John Tsoukaris-avatar

    This is the first Android file manager I used that when I click on a file it doesn't present all installed apps that can open the particular file type. For instance, I installed ms onedrive, which along other things is a very good pdf viewer. But when I click on a pdf file, Files doesn't provide the option to open it in onedrive. The same is also true for media files etc

    The worst app ever google has made. It does its work very slowly. To transfer a file from phone storage to memory card, a single video takes a lot of time and also it hangs a lot. I was transferring a video to the sd card and then the app hanged and when i restarted the app the video got deleted. I just wanna get rid of this app but can't do so as my phone is google based and it just irritates a lot........

    This review would be better if they'd prompted it when I was exiting it. I have a slow phone, just got a SD card and was using the app to move storage. Wtg Google!!! You can advertise 30 sec after leaving a site on FB but not to hold off rate begging for the end of users usage...smh

  49. Akilan N M K-avatar

    I particularly like the "removal of duplicate files" feature. It fortunately has a dark mode too and it has gotten smoother with updates. But, the features are somewhat less compared to, say, SolidExplorer. It doesn't provide something like a "Tiles/Thumbnails" view. It doesn't have the option of "file encryption". It doesn't have "batch rename", pretty important for me. It doesn't have "Select in Range", that's very important. We can't keep selecting files one by one. Try to implement these.

    I just had the risk of destroying files upon moving them because the stupid transfer animation didn't show up and thought the files weren't being transferred. Now the file is split up. Your bugs and flaws are stupid. If by any chance any operations made by this app would ruin a file, how in the world am I to trust this app.

    I like it. It's cleans old files. But doesn't clean enough

    It's brilliant, just like when you're a kid in junior school, teacher tells you what has to be done within what time period, but you know if you follow the advice that goes with it, that in all likelihood the aim will be met. Exactly like this app, it tells you what needs doing, provides advice and what route to take to complete and bobs your uncle, happy days MISSON COMPLETED, and loads of extra memory.

    It's a pretty basic app, and although I can't tell you exactly how it works, I'm quite sure that it depends on your phone; or at least, how it has been configured. According to the software on my phone, I am constantly running out of space, which leads me to this app. What I find is: 1/ The app doesn't really make things any better; 2/ So I clear my apps' caches (not their data). This makes a difference; 3/ My phone has a 128 GB card, so why do I have a storage problem? I hope this helps.

  54. Amanda SwanSon-avatar

    No ads. Graphics are great. Processing is fast and doable. And as far as what it deletes and when... You get to decide all of that because it givea yoy the option to see it, check it, and confirm it BEFORE it deletes it. Overall, it works so well I sonetimes forget that it's not a stock app, lol. Anyway, would definetly recommend.

    I like what the app does for me. It allows me to cull apps that are getting a little too close for my comfort and uninstaller them. It shows the permissions of each app ;a very good indicator of the ethics of the developer. I also can easily free up cache storage being wasted or interfering with the speed of other shoots I trust it! And who can beat the price? 😀

    App becomes slower after a while... sometimes it doesn't show things you saved until you clear cache. Google should please look into this and make it kinda lighter to run. Love the app but waiting about a minute to have it open to show me my files ain't worth it. Still love it and won't uninstall because of the suggestion on clearing unnecessary files but totalcommander is helping and it's light to run.

  57. Eduardo Jardim-avatar

    The app is really Good, a must have. However After the Android 10 Update the app stopped being able to locate any occult files, what is a considerable problem since most duplicated files and biggest archives are often occult ones, if this gets fixed the app will be perfect again, please solve that Guys.

    When it works, it is adequate at notifying user of optimizable space. For a substantial period, it would alert me of non-essential junk files to be deleted(etc.), however, selecting,"free up space,"would not complete said designated action. I have since uninstalled all updates and the factory version seems to be working fine.

  59. Eric Parola-avatar

    A big reason for installing this app was the ability to delete cache/junk files. Why this function was removed is beyond me but it's now useless to me. Sadly will likely be removing this app in favor of one that still has this function. Too bad, very easy to use, no BS, just a quick scan and results with recommendations for what can be removed.

    Góogle products are the best! Always offering high quality apps, upgraded features, the most convenient capabilities and exciting new updates with the upmost confidence in their reliability. I am super satisfied and always pleased to use their services. The personalized movie maker and customized photos are one of my favs.

  61. Kekoa Cambra-avatar

    If you're like me and you like your device to be as minimalist and not pack-ratty like you are in real life, then you need this app. Not only does this help you navigate your files, but it does the work for you when it comes to cleaning up files you never use, pics you don't need to keep, and delivers a streamlined and spacious device storage. Great job guys!

  62. Lina Leyda-avatar

    I'm quite impressed with this app. It seems to be smarter than me - lol! It's like a virtual secretary and I've wondered about how I'll manage the duplicates esp when I don't have time. I love this very much. Four rating because it's only my first time use. I'll update again to see if it's definitely worth a five star.

  63. jar8425-avatar

    Kind of weird and persnickety. You have to do things in a specific order to get it to work properly. Tap this drive, look for a specific file type, select what you want to do and hopefully it will then ask you where you want to go. A general answer means it won't work AT ALL.

  64. Loweja Dogs-avatar

    Fantastic. I couldn't remember when I installed this app as I didn't even think I would need it but there ya go. Up pops the app telling me I had duplicate files which I knew but hadn't gotten round to delete Much easier to use than manually going through photos and files Well done google, you made a app that's easy to use and sensible.

  65. Kees de Jong-avatar

    It's great! Much better than the default/stock Files app. However, why can't I disable the default/stock Files app? Now I have 2 apps with the same name and purpose from the same developer. This mess is probably part of Google's way of working, since there are also a ton of Google messengers, 2 Google music players, and probably more messy detached projects... Please, get your act together Google.

  66. Ryan C-avatar

    As a file manager, this app stinks. I can't even choose folders to move or copy files to. Just let's me select internal storage. Can't select actual folders. Outside of device transfers, this app is useless and wasting space on my phone. And this is a Google app no less. A bit pathetic. Like they're the first ones to ever make a file manager. 🙄 And stop deleting my review. 2nd time I've had a negative review deleted.

  67. ranish sivan-avatar

    It's a superb app to clear your cookies and junk files. One problem which I faced here was that when I need to clear my data, I get an option to clear all or partial data only once and than that particular category is removed from the list. Wherein, it would be a nice touch to the app if that particular category stays in the list for multiple use

    At first I disliked it, I was like where is my gallery, cause most phones have a gallery, but then I realized honestly it's better if it's all accessible from one place. It's easy to free up space and if you use Google Photos, you can still save your photos there!

  69. TAG CLOSET-avatar

    My SD card is not showing on File manager. I've been trying to move files from my internal space to my SD card. Please help.

  70. Lucas Machado-avatar

    Very intuitive to use, you can choose everything that you want to be deleted, it doesn't erase things you don't want to automatically. Great media previewing while selecting files so you can see if something is important or not. I could free up way more space than with similar apps.

  71. Duke DUKE-avatar

    Files by Google is awesome!!! Found it when I was cleaning up my storage and memory. Cleaning up your storage and freeing up your memory can take a long time!!! And it is tedious work!!! For starters, finding duplicate photos that are scrambled everywhere in your storage is practically impossible to gather up and delete them. Files by Google does all that for you!!! Save time and let Files by Google clean up your storage and memory for you!!

  72. Christian Schick-avatar

    Simple to use. This app suggests ways to free up space and then let's you confirm which files you want to delete. It doesn't assume that you want to delete all large files or all duplicate photos. It asks you, let's you see which duplicate files it's referring to, and then deletes all or some of them. Very good user experience.

  73. Eric Eric-avatar

    Of late especially when you free up space like 1 GB it doesn't show, it remains constant unless you close the app and reopen it then sometimes it starts to show. That's not good. It would be nice to see the contents of the folder one is copying or moving items into, not just the other folders which is visible but the files, if any that is in that folder.

  74. Johnny Nasello-avatar

    I'm enjoying this app. It has a nice set of features, but doesn't have too many that make some file management apps overly complicated. I would love the ability to set favorites to more quickly find certain documents.

  75. F.B.I.-avatar

    The app is really good. Finds large or duplicate files for you so you can delete them. Though, when trying to play back videos, it is really slow and sometimes doesn't work. Other than that, the app is amazing.

  76. Atlas Net-avatar

    This app is really great already, since it's a step up from the default Android file explorer, adding extra options when selecting a file, it's easier to rename things, and offers some extra features, though I would like it to also be able to unzip files, or maybe have some support downloads, like fonts.

  77. Kim-avatar

    Easy to use. I especially like the "clean" feature. I also like that I can use the app to send and receive files to and from my other phone. Update Feb 26, 2020: For some reason, the app has stopped flagging duplicate files during the "Clean" scan. It was working fine until the last app update.

  78. sanjay kumar-avatar

    Loved the app! ❤️ Such a wonderful experience! It's better than other cleaning apps... It helps me to clear the unnecessary files and gives suggestions for the same whether it is junk or a copy of same file! Can't even think of uninstalling it. If you guys have not installed this app then do it right now! Their is no inappropriate adds or anything like that! It's just for a good storage in phone! Are you still reading my comment? Then, what are you waiting for? Go and install it right now...

  79. Jay Jay Owsik-avatar

    For Google/Chromebook owners, this is a must have! It Cleans, Copies, will categorize all of your files and apps, and even allows you to send any of your information to other devices containing the app. You can get rid of your cache cleaning and file apps throughout all of your devices. I didn't realize how bad I needed this app until I installed it. Definitely give it a try!

  80. Wepax Quolim-avatar

  81. Shivam Mishra-avatar

    Dear @developer, the reason why I am unhappy with this app is that since last 4-5 months I use this app mostly and when I try to open this app or play any video or try read any documents, this app stops and closes unexpectedly . Though I try giving my feedbacks to you personally on this app platform, but there is no use , you haven't corrected this issue.

  82. mike malo-avatar

    Well it just showed up on my phone and was running. It showed me a bunch of files that I could get rid ofbut the only problem is that on some of the behind-the-scenes files from old apps I'm not sure just by looking at the thing which one is safe to get rid of or not and the app really doesn't tell you it just says get rid of them allthat's a little nerve-wracking but I went for it and it worked woohoo!!!!

  83. Binodini Dash-avatar

    It was Working all well on my Nokia 6.1 but after the recent update of Android 10 and update of this app .It stopped showing me Junk files I refreshes many times and waited for almost a month now but it isn't showing the junk files Tab, but when I uninstalled recent previous update to this then again it started showing me Junk files so plz help how to fix it

  84. Ergina Syrigou-avatar

    Still needs some stability fixes and improvements but overall a nice, clean app

  85. Stevan Zecevic-avatar

    Work's good, although I have one simple question ? Nearby sharing files asks for location ON ? Why, when sharing files works only when the phones are in the same room ? Guys, correct this. Really, let's have some privacy. That's why I'm giving 3 stars. Ok, so it seems that you don't get the question right. Again, I am asking - when I use file sharing, why does the app asks for location on, when it is obvious that file sharing works only when the two phones are in the same room ?

  86. Nazmul Sagor-avatar

    I can't play audio and video directly with other app. Audio and video are not connected with direct applications directly. To play with other app after playing a audio and video there's need to "open with". But, it's boring. Please solve this issue as soon as possible. Then I will give you five star rating points.

  87. Peter-avatar

    Seemingly some glaring omissions in functionality. For example, the feature to identify and remove duplicate files doesn't tell you the locations of the files, so you don't know whether you're deleting the version in internal memory or on the SD card, while feature to move files from internal memory to the SD card doesn't allow you to specify where on the SD card. The app could be really good but isn't.

  88. Rushit Patel-avatar

    Very nice app for your android to free up app, it will show you images and video according to the application of your phone including hidden item which would not appears in gallery, also show according to the size of files. We can delete unusable files from file manager but consume more time and it would embarrassing. But using file go it's better.

  89. Christian Herrera-avatar

    This app sucks it repeatedly keeps on popping this alert that I need to free up space and won't let me do nothing unless I press that -storage space run out-. When I press it it send me to the app and it says that I have NO junk because I'm up to date with everything. And the storage says it's full when I have ONLY ONE app downloaded which it's for my music nothing else. This app sucks

    Love it so far so good. I'll tell you what who ever may be reading this review. I have had this before on a phone in the past. But here recently, like today i've gotten it again and I'm impressed again. Lol... I really love the fact it is a legitimate Google app product, so there goes the security in the mind, knowing at least isnt going to be some random person creation that does nothing and screws your devices up, but this is great, it is amazing at helping de-cluttering everything.

  92. Lars Pendleton-avatar

    Hey Google! Stick to being a search engine. Your apps suck! When browsing images on this app, if you select one image to view, you will lose your place if you attempt to go back to where you were browsing. It will force you back to the beginning of the folder. Also, it won't allow you access your pictures until you acknowledge that you can cast them to your TV. EVERY TIME! Last, after it is installed, don't be surprised when files and images begin to dissappear from your collection.

  93. Indeka Rodriguez-avatar

    I like how it alerts you of any junk files and allows you to clear them. However I am having trouble finding any recent pics taken on the device. Please advise of an troubleshooting that I may do to find those lost images. Other than that still learning the app. One question: does it send and receive files on its own or does that have to be done manually? I ask because of privacy concerns. Thanks again in advance and God bless us all.

  94. Rachel Herrera-avatar

    Does all the work on it's own just answer the prompts as they come along or pop up as notifications. All you do is accept and agree to what files you would like cleaned up, stored or remove duplicates. It's fairly simple not an all day task that frustrates you to where your stressed out to your limit. It's nothing like that at all, this one is a breeze where you're relaxed its all done and taken care of for you.

  95. East Wood-avatar

    This is one of the best apps I've ever came across for cleaning. When it first appeared on my homepage I remove it.l thought it was one of those apps that said one thing and does another, like make my phone slow down or even worst it had a virus. This is the first time I can say only one thing l am %100 satisfied with this product.I would recommend this app for anyone that needs a one kick ass app for cleaning. Thanks You

  96. Harshal Thakur-avatar

    It's totally amazing guys, it helped me a lot to clean my waste files,even I didn't know that too many useless files are stored in my phone that were taking at least 6.2 GB space. But it recommended me to delete these files and now phone is working fast and lagless that's what I want. I did a great work for downloading this app. You should also download it.👍👍

  97. Handy Christian-avatar

    Handy Christian


    Useful in cleaning your phone. I just wish they do indexing so the start up scanning process can be much faster, only need to detect changes since the previous start-up. It takes considerable amount of time every time I start the app to detect existing files in the drive before I can do anything. Note 10+ with 12 Gb of RAM here.

  98. Henrik Helfenbein-avatar

    Moving a file to a subdirectory does copy-and-delete (slow, wearing), instead of a filesystem edit. Cannot search from the current directory. Wasting time and battery life on infantile animations. Extracting a zip produces an empty directory. Other file managers get these right and takes less storage space. Since this app cannot be removed, just disabled, I consider it bloat-ware.

  99. Jenn Huntingdon-avatar

    As only installed couple days ago, can't give accurate or comprehensive review. Unfortunately you are hassled to give review before you have time to actually get to "know" the app. I would advise to give more time to new "installers" before constant review demands. Really one does need more than 5 minutes of using app before being able to review. Just saying like!!!

    Vary good app given by goggle. It is vary use to manage your data. You can delete photos which are duplicate. You sand and resive any mobile from any other mobile. It is vary easy to use and helpful with full security.
