Is your Android phone or tablet running out of space? You may have already deleted some apps or files, but somehow your device is still low on storage. Don’t despair. Google’s free Files Go app can help.

Playing the role of storage manager, Files Go shows you exactly how much space is available on your primary storage and SD card. It scans your device to hunt down old photos, memes from chats, duplicate files, unused apps, and more baggage, and can remove any or all of the content it finds. And the more you run the app, the smarter it gets at offering suggestions on ways to free up space. Here’s how it works.
