If you have noticed, we have not mentioned the "Go" word anywhere in the title of this article. Why? Because the formerly known as "Files Go" app has indeed been rebranded as just "Files", plus it has gotten a complete UI redesign, which borrows some visual aesthetics from Google's other apps for Android, thus opting for a nearly colorless look, with white backgrounds all over the place. These design choices do actually resemble the Material Design 2 guidelines, also known as Material Theming.

Instead, it uses Bluetooth and Wi-Fi Direct to do the file transfers. The thing which differentiates our beloved operating system from other competitors (e.g. IOS) is the freedom of sharing and installing apps from outside of the dedicated app store (Google Play Store in our case)....
