Google rebranded its Files Go app last month to Google Files. It also introduced a redesign for this well regarded file manager app. It has an international audience with more than 30 million people across the globe using the app to manage files on their Android devices. It had originally built the app for Android Go. Google continues to improve its features and has now added support for USB OTG.

USB OTG or on-the-go means that the app will be to let users access the contents of a USB drive hooked up to an Android device. This feature is already present on many third-party Android file managers so it’s good to see that Google is adding this crucial feature to its own app.

Whether or not a lot of people will utilize it is another matter altogether, but at least those who do will appreciate having the OTG support for access the contents of a plugged in flash drive or memory card through the Google Files app.

The update also adds the ability to view the full folder structures. This will make it easier for users to keep an eye on the various files on their device. Last but not the least, the usual slew of bug fixes is included in the latest update for Google Files that’s now available for download from the Play Store.
