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.

  1. Aslam Hussain-avatar

    Good app, good interface but there is no option to edit in pictures like corp, draw. This is the basic feature and it should be available. 1-july-20. There is no option to move/copy files into folders. It only allow to copy/move into sd card or sd card to phone's storage. Why there is no option to move any file into where i want???

  2. VIJAY MOTAMWAR-avatar

    apk The app gives best performance for file browsing's and management but the file moving and transferring is tedious as it takes a lot of time with multiple file and also too slow too move large file. File transfer makes the phone slow and hang many times sometimes it even reboot on it's own. Try making file transfer more smooth experience than it is now.

  3. Abhishek Sarraf Soni-avatar

    apk download It can share only 55 files at a time . Also it misbehaves while moving or copying large number of files from one folder to another . If this issue would be fixed then it would be the best ever file management app. It doesn't have any ads, easy to use , good organisation and interface.

  4. Alen Thomas Moncy-avatar

    Alen Thomas Moncy


    download It is noted that to transfer a file we cannot search the file or look for the file in the phone by finding the folder in which the files are kept. Also it is very hard to find the files when they are in different folders. Kindly solve the issue so that we can search for the files through the folders while doing a transfer with another device. Also when moving the files within the device folders, we have to select the target folder separately from the beginning which is a lot time consuming.

  5. Craig Newton-avatar

    apkpure It's actually pretty dam easy to's harder to type this message than it was to free up 1.5 gigs...thanks again Google for finding away to be able to go through all my files and pick what you think is not needed any longer cause you keep track of everything we do on phones that you should know...thanks again love ya

    files go by google clean up space on your phone super, jus the thing needed. this app could use some improvements however. it does not detect USB thumb drives plugged into it's usbc charging port. that can make backing up files easier. also this app insists on transferring files to top level folder only. Making back up management a bit more painful. nonetheless's a must have tool on ur phone.

  7. P V M K VAMSI-avatar

    files go by google free up space on your phone The ' Files by Google ' is a best file browsing and storage monitoring app made by Google. It's quite simple and secure enough to use and it helps you to view all your files of your mobile handset. It also helps you to monitor your files as per your usage whether to keep them or remove them !

    دانلود I think every Android phone needs this app set as the default file manager, especially because of its wireless file sharing. I'm absolutely sick of situations when I need to install an extra app every single time only because I need people send me something fast. Oh, and please release Files for iOS too (so iPhone users would not complain about it not being available in App Store). EDIT: Please add an option for not showing folders with .nomedia in "Images" even with "Show hidden files" enabled.

  9. John Holz-avatar

    Immensely better than standard Files app that came pre-installed on my Google Pixel 3. I could NOT find downloaded files in the old app, but this new app makes them all easily accessible, just click -- wait for it -- the button labeled "Downloads". Love it, thank you.

  10. Rohan J. Chhajed-avatar

    Rohan J. Chhajed


    It doesn't allow me to move/copy data from categorised section to a particular folder. E.g. While moving no. of images it doesn't allow me to move them from image category where all those images are appearing together instead of going through each folder seperately where those images have been scattered. Also allow to share folder(s). Also it takes lot of time to move folders of size abv. 2GB within same storage where for other apps it takes some milliseconds for any size of folder/files




    Wow! That's great! You took my suggestions into your consideration. It's now working smoothly and more effective and convenient. Now we can play songs simultaneously. Tracks are changing automatically through the folder play. It is very nice. You know expectations are never end, so if you avail there a shuffle key, it may more beautiful. Thank you for your response and making this app awesome.

  12. Mrigank Sinha-avatar

    Files by Google is the best File manager app. It is really even better than my in-built file manager. After Share-it and Xender were banned in my country I got worried because they were the only sharing apps I knew but Files made everything easy and even better. I personally recommend this app after using it in-depth. This is best Files app and thereby I give it 4 stars.

  13. Sougata Maitra-avatar

    It is very useful. The time When file is copied shows, which is very much helpful for me. But during copy or move a big file from one location to another, it does not shows any information such as the percentage of copying data, remaining time to complete the process, how much kb or mb data is copying per second, presently which file is copying etc. like windows PC provide. Also I miss the same info. for deleting some files.

  14. 123 456-avatar

    1. Often I can't find the file I've just downloaded or I've just worked with. For that I have to open manually first Downloads then if it's not there (why? It was just downloaded), Internal storage - Downloads. (Why there are two Sections?! Like the main interface "Files" and one more "Internal storage"). Search often just doesn't show the file. 2.Impossible to create a shortcut for a file or folder . Every time I want to listen to music I have to go to Internal storage - Music. Annoying.

  15. K.L. Kushawaha-avatar

    Excellent app for storage management. Cleans junk files from my phone. Keeps my phone clean of unnecessary files and this helps in smooth performance. I just love it! Keep it up! Just one problem that I cannot share files anymore. Its showing some problem. Please sort it out. 👍👍

  16. FabianGFX-avatar

    There's this bug where it doesn't allow me to clear cache when I select all my apps. Keeps displaying that it was interrupted. I try many alternatives but nothing seemed to work on my end. Any help? Edit: Nvm, they uhh seemed to fix the problem just as I said that........Thanks 😂

  17. Saket Jha-avatar

    Thank you so much Google, the space of my device was running out, the default file manager of my device used to crash and I was looking for a software which can send or receive files without disturbing me and I got the solution for all in just 1 app. I want to give this app more than 5 stars for the excellence.

    This program is a well-rounded application and I will keep it in service. You don't have to download a cleaning app if you get Files by Google. Most of the files that I get rid of I still want them and I just sync them with the Cloud and I can still access them if I still have signal. To get the the deleted file to run is play with the settings and keep the widget, it will access the file through sync. I am proud to be part of the Jedi Order as a Supernova and love to Help out any way I can!!!🐿

  19. Squish Team-avatar

    I love it. i just had one problem with moving heavy folder (1.9gb), it showed "xxx files deleted" (woot ?!) and then, after a while, an error that it couldn't move - although they were moved at first look. please investigate this issue and fix if indeed something is wrong with it - and i will update to five! EDIT: i join to the previous reviewer's request! UPDATE: please also include 1. filename in deletion dialog 2. when move file - to begin in its current level, not from root. thank you!

  20. Sharad Sawant-avatar

    This is great app with all file management & sharing in one place. But it would be great if you add functionality for sharing folders, currently we need to select each file/photos separately. Please consider this suggestion for improvement.

    Works good to keep track of and manage your storage. Its about time someoen began taking phone storage seriously. Even though it is a google app, Which I usually like google products, until they let someone else somehow post videos to my YouTube account (owned by google) and then banned me for life with bo recourse and no way to clear the matter. When they could easily tell I was not the person who did it. I promised I would not let it go, now I and friends are looking for Google alternatives.

  22. Dolly Gupta-avatar

    The UI is very exquisite. All things are rightly placed. It works fine as a data transfer application but some data is missing completely from the list while sharing. Developers must fix this.

  23. Anirban Banerjea-avatar

    As a File Explorer, we get all the functionalities. But need to increase the speed while sending. Need the facility, to send the entire folder in one go, instead of file by file.

  24. taiowa 72-avatar

    What the heck just happened!?! I went into settings, chose help and feedback. It said specifically if I wanted to CLEAN my app press clean. As a matter of fact I mashed on the option a few times. I even made sure the symbols matched. I selected clean or at least I thought I had, then all the sudden I see the word DELETED! I read the info and it said that if you want to clean hit clean and if you want to delete select that and that we can't undue this option. I didn't hit delete. Now all is gon

  25. Kelsey Meadows-avatar

    Really enjoy this app. Only issue I have is how complicated the user interface becomes when trying to decipher your Folders from your Albums, and sometimes seems like pictures will end up in random folders/albums that they aren't even remotely related to, and without me manually moving them myself. Other than that, no major issues.

  26. A Google user-avatar

    Mike, moto e5 plus running Android 8 Updated on Jun 18th. I use this for file clearing, I managing files with a different app. This has got a clear interface & it works as expected. It's OK for me. The animations are not necessary but I guess they beat a boring progress bar so I'm not bothered by those. Generally it's a nice app.

    It is a good app. I can manage my photos, videos and also some documents in my device. It can also share the files, photos, videos and also the great thing apps too!!! from my device to another. This also supports dark theme, which is also a great thing. I is also very easy to use.

  28. Ajith Lal-avatar

    I was using this arround 9 months and I love this app. If you can add file sharing to ios and connect to pc option it will be very good. Then we dont have to keep multiple application for all these things. All-in-one app ❤️

  29. Syed 345-avatar

    I installed this app and use it for 3 minutes and then I saw (rate us option) is came. Developer need to change timing of This message because we need some time to spend it. Then we reviewe it wall.Over all its a great App with brilliant quality.😊☺️

  30. Avijit Malakar-avatar

    Its a very nice application for anyone who suffering from up space of phone. It's always delete my all junk and duplicate files which is covered my more and more space. Do not trust any other cleaner applications, Now GOOGLE provide it's official cleaner and also a file Manager.😁😁😁👏👏🙏🙏🙏🙏

  31. Teguh Sakura-avatar

    I Just update, but this app still slow on loading a folder with lot of images file ( 500 and more ) And will fail if copy or delete alot of images file more then 1000 images. Take alot of cpu resource too. Uninstall it, using ES File Explorer or Total Commander still much better.

  32. D A-avatar

    Helps to uninstall apps you no longer need and allows you to try to focus more on the things you want to find. I like this because it makes things easier and life has been too stressful lately.

  33. Prasun Talukdar-avatar

    Prasun Talukdar


    this app is very much helpful and solve more than one purpose. it would be very good if there have some sort of widget to clean the junk files or connect to share directly from widget without opening the app.

  34. Pranil Patil-avatar

    Sharing is not at all easy on this this app. I use it as a option for share it. But there are lots of difficulties in that. U cant share folders. Limit on no of images that can be shared. ..but the sharing speed is good so i given extra one star.

  35. RubberDuckiee Van Alst-avatar

    RubberDuckiee Van Alst


    I rwally needed this app. I get very low on storage all the time and this app lets me permanatly delete screeshots, ideos etc. If you ever need storage and nothing is working, I would reccomend using this. 10/10 would definitely reccomend. : )

  36. Devesh Singh-avatar

    It's a very good app, works smoothly, no lagging, more lighter than chinese #ShareIt, but kindly add files/folders option in sending and sharing, sometimes we find it difficult to search things in whole pictures, videos, apps, docs and images.

  37. nishith shah-avatar

    My experience was worst on first time. Tried thrice to transfer my files from my phone to my friend's phone who also have same app. But couldn't send it as there was an connection error occurring whenever I tried to send files to him. Pls resolve this issue. My phone is one plus 6 and my friend has one plus 5.

  38. austin bosse-avatar

    Great app! I'm always trying to save as much space on my phone as possible. I was never really able to locate where some of the bigger files were at, and this app help me find them and remove the ones I wanted to remove. Will definitely keep installing on future phones

  39. Thabang Adam-avatar

    When coming to photos well it is well packed. But I can't sort songs according to their genres. One minute I'm playing Deep house the next thing gospel song comes. I can't move up my files 😠😠😠. It even takes the whole 5 minutes Just to refresh and open. Now I have to install Other APPS which drain up my battery. That's not okay at all.

  40. Mike DuPree-avatar

    Great Clean up tool and file finder wish it would give complete file paths and names. Unlike windows, most of my experience, hard to find desired file names. Makes me resort to creating temp folders

  41. Rob-avatar

    I like Google files because it has the cleaning feature to clean up cache on your device. It would be nice if u could free up more space on your phone with Google files. This Google files is better than some of the cleaners I've downloaded before.

  42. Prince Jain-avatar

    Unknown Error: Could not move internal memory items to SD card. Since on the screen i have a option to move to SD card, once it clicke it will start the process but aftter completion an error will come "Unknown Error: Could not move internal memory items to SD card.". Please fix this error.

  43. Morli Vyas-avatar

    i have 2 issues with this app 1. This application does not give option to choose manually location of file. This app support sharing of selected formats ( AUDIO VIDEO IMAGE ) 2. In new update please come with grid view Please introduce a new view in file manager like ( Rows & column ) I like this application.

  45. Arqom Noval-avatar

    lately, cannot copy or move files from internal storage to SD card.. the error message was "failed to move xx files. error unknown".. and strangely, several files on SD card which previously was succesfully deleted, after the error shown above, was somehow restored, but with 0 byte size..

  46. Niraj Nihlani-avatar

    Pathetic features. Only actual transfer happens fast. But we've to individuality select each file for the transfer. also there is no option for direct folder transfer. what's the point if all the sorted data gets mixed mess in the other phone? what are google employees doing in ther offices? dumb charades?

  47. Kirtan Patel-avatar

    App is really working fine and smooth. If there will be support for connecting laptop via FTP or any other options, app would be perfect for me.👍




    Best app ever in the world, the reason why I am giving 5 stars ☆☆☆☆☆ because my phones front camera was not working but when I installed this it somehow fixed the problem and now it's working properly and I am so happy now thanks to the creators of this app, best app ever ! :-)

  49. Amiy Mallik-avatar

    There is so much missing in the app as compared to other file managers. You also don't have the option to access device connected on tge same network. You know, homegroup and all.

  50. Arikta Singh-avatar

    Great app. I am an android user andd everyone knows how much androids hang. Helped me clean my storage and find files which I was searching for over a month. Thanks to Google💫.

    Disconnection in receiver phone after sender sends files and displays many times allow ones messages. After Connecting icon display on receiver screen but try again message display. Cannot send to files.very bad application.

  53. shiven gandhi-avatar

    1. Its should add pc to phone file transfer over same network like Xender. 2. Connecting other device needs more optimisation. Its kind a slow in connection process and speed of file transfer. Over all good app to have as File Manager but they should improve it.

  54. a yamini-avatar

    Nice experience.. and easy to access and share the files. Large files also can be transferred in min time.. To clean up the storage is very easy.. Loved the app

  55. Jason Munson-avatar

    Not really sure what this app is supposed to do. I sort files largest to smallest on my internal storage and the first things in the list are empty folders or tiny files. Same when I reverse the sorting. Not very helpful.

    Files by Google really helped me to manage my abundant files. Before I got it I never had any space and my device kept in telling me to delete my files. Now with files by Google I am managing my space much better. Thank you

    I like this app very much. I only want some changes in the app that is one should be able to create a folder and can add or remove items from the folder. Please make the changes as fast as possible. Please. Review from Priyranjan Nayak.

    Life Saver! I could not get my pixel to remove the photos on my phone they had been deleted but still showing so, they had taken up the space! After I installed the app it was easy to do.

    Very fast and easy way to regain storage space, by moving files to the SIM Card, hidding unused apps, and deleting junk data. Great tool for storage management. Thank you...!!!

  60. KUNAL DEY-avatar

    App is not working.. the app in receiver device is showing connecting while I am sending a file from my device. Even after 5 minutes no progress in file sharing is showing. Please look into this issue.

  61. Ankur Malik-avatar

    So far I have been very satisfied with the app. It has allowed me to seamlessly check for unnecessary files and free tremendous space

  62. Pavan Maurya-avatar

    This is worst app for file transfer.I tried to share the video from my another vivo mobile to my current vivo mobile but it doesn't connected to different device so that i can transfer. @Google you still need to reform yourself to reach the level of share it !

  63. Boi og gamer-avatar

    It alot better than I thought, it does exactly what it says it does, its very handy at getting rid of files that are not wanted any more and you get to choose exactly what you want deleted nice job google highly recommended for android users

  64. TheJazz-avatar

    A great all in one app. Has an awesome cleaner. Has a file transfer (definitely not the best). And an in built video, music player. We can view different kind of files. And a lot more.

    Very easy to use. No gimmicks, no extras. It shows duplicate files, apps to consider removing if it recognizes I'm not using them, etc. It's great.

  66. Jacob Henson-avatar

    Love how fast and easy it is to let you remove junk files but decide about your pictures even though they are stored in basically the cloud. Love this

  67. Durga-avatar

    While sharing the files it's doesn't have the option for bulk selection. If you have to migrate data from old to new phone,then sharing files through this is pathetic. Apart from all options are good.

  68. Staci Coushman-avatar

    Love that it gives suggestions on how clear out junk. I'm always afraid to clean things up and delete the wrong things. 😬

  69. ASHISH NANDAWAR-avatar



    I will give it 5 star but needs some improvement in sharing option, in this only file will be selected for sharing. why you dont add complete folder sharing also in it? Please add this feature and then definately this app is better than any other sharing apps.

  70. Amirul Akmal-avatar

    dear developers, Im using Pixel 2XL and already had permanent google files (blue) app but unfortunately that app cant do what this FILES BY GOOGLE app can like removing junk files, reduce storage and others. I hope all this functionality in this app can be inside the permanent files app which in Google Pixel phones. Thanks alot!

  71. Greyson R.-avatar

    For some reason my phone doesn't actually delete apps when you tell it to, so having this was nice. I haven't had any problems with it so far.

    Add feature like scan qr code to pair with other devices. I would like to reques to change its name from Files to something else like Transmit, Shift or whatever you like.

    Love this app. It took a bit not to be afraid of uninstalling stuff and bricking my phone. Phone is much faster without all the clutter taking up space. Thank you to whoever came up with these necessary tools.

    The software on Android devices is so pathetic and badly designed, that I cannot even find the setting on how to use voice texting to write a scathing review on Android 'files' software. So now I'm also reviewing this Google junkware. Google is without a doubt the WORST software manufacturer in human history. Billions of hours are wasted daily by these sickening devices. Computing is about increasing human productivity. Google is about increasing Socialism. Get a real job, and perhaps work

    Great app from google and a good alternative for xender and share it. But we cannot share folders in this app which makes it impossible to share obb for games etc. Please add this feature ASAP. Then you will be the best.

    Need more improvements. Transfer file option is not good. Very slow. Need wifi mode to transfer files easily. And also need web google transfer to send and receive files in computer.

  79. kishor patil-avatar

    File transfer speed is very slow. In Internal Storage one folder to another folder file transfer takes too much time. In other Mobiles file transfer one to another folder takes fraction of seconds. Make file transfer easy and fast in Internal Storage.

    Decent app to show my pictures and other files stored in my phone. I do like the auto cleanup feature that prompts about once a week to delete old or unused files, temp files, etc.

  81. Anurag Anand-avatar

    Good but please provide the following three features - 1) Sharing by scaning qr code 2) Enable default opening videos and photos with other image viewer and video player applications like MX Player please. 3) Please provide screen rotation button in video player. Thank You

    This app is smooth and light but automatically stop after sometime. So fix this bug immediately. Thank you.

    I just use the cleaning facility on my Samsung Tab 8... works fine. This app can't find all my duplicate files/pics... I use another app to do that.

    When we share video content if sometime sharing fails and snd again the same file it starts from the beginning, not start from the previous end, its the only fault that I have found in the app.

  86. T. A. LEE-avatar

    Great app helps clean up phone. Helps with offices that don't heave a file manager. Allows files and other toys of content to be saved to an SDcard.

  87. Bharathi G-avatar

    This application is very useful & effective. But have no invite link (For example shareit have invite link it's easily to share this application to another mobile) Kindly update this feature on this application. It's my suggestion.

  88. Gene Godsey-avatar

    This is a very intuitive and useful tool that probably does a lot of maintenance help as well as management of files. Android is really not the strongest in this area but I can say this tool has really made it a lot better

  89. James R. Reel-avatar

    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!!

    The app is very easy to use...a good alternative app by Google. Only one other apps if it is possible to share files from mobile to PC, it would be the best app to use

  91. Dilip s-avatar

    Multiple Audio files didn't play or add playing list features missing if folder and file selected together there is no option as to play kindly add that features it will be good and app will be on top

  92. Family Bucher-avatar

    It isn't possible to move files to specific folders when you are the categories or in the search view. You've to browse two times (source and target) manually to the correct location while this is more a pain than a feature... This problem is mentioned in many comments.

  93. Debs Watson-avatar

    Worked great before I updated now when I try to delete junk files all I get is 'Cache deletion interrupted, try again later' ! Thanks for replying, cannot find form anywhere to send you screen shot

  94. Suraj Rohit-avatar

    Great App Need few more improvement like in file sharing we can't browse file ... searching files in the predefined category like(video , audio etc ) is too time taking in long list..This please add file browsing category to select files while sharing files with friends.

  95. J is for Jan-avatar

    Great app, the only drawback is that if you try to clear the downloads folder within the app it doesn't actually clear the download folder on your phone.

  96. Philip Kinney-avatar

    This is a very useful app that makes cleaning up old, unused apps and data on your phone easy. I don't use it very often, but I'm always amazed at how much junk is sitting on my phone that I forgot about. Good job Google!

  97. Harsh Patil-avatar

    The app is good but there is a problem that we can not send any file from the internal storage we can only share file which are in the downloads folder please fix that.

  98. Jas K-avatar

    inter-connectivity with other applications is still an issue. the views - List & Grid are way too large in context to a mobile handset, takes up a lot space.

  99. Stacey Chapman-avatar

    Really great app it helps u clean some of the storage files of junk, it tells u of extra pictures of same thing, plus let's u know if u haven't opened an app in a while giving u a nudge to remove it from phone. If not using y let it have the space it takes. Try it you'll see

  100. Praveen Kumar-avatar

    There must be an option to share files to both sides at the same time and also a card must not get dismissed untill we dismiss it when we delete some files to clean space
