3. Share files offline

You know Airdrop for iOS devices, don’t you? What about Xender? Well, Android may have built its own app which performs equal functions to the ones stated above.

Instead of being able to send files to random strangers, the recipient will have to approve the connection between the devices before anything can be sent or received.

To use the file sharing feature, each person will need to visit the Files tab and select Send or Receive. After that, follow the prompts to complete the transfer.


In the Settings for Files Go, you can change the name that shows up for file sharing, and control alerts for various triggers (low storage or large media files, for example).
