Originally intended for Android Go, Google files have rapidly become a favorite for many Android users. Google today announced that Files has more than 100 million monthly users, and celebrating is receiving an official dark mode and enhancing media characteristics.
Google files will be receiving an official dark theme on Android over the next few days. Previously, this function was found in a beta version of the app, but at the moment it only worked on Android Q. Google hasn’t explained how the dark mode is going to operate, but UI pictures confirm it’s going to be an all-black design.
In addition, Google files collect better media controls in addition to the dark mode. The new media controls make it possible for offline media to skip, rewind, and quickly forward. For any media app, it’s fairly typical feature, but having those controls in the Files app eliminates the need for another app on your computer. Video is also subject to the same checks.
These two characteristics will roll out “over the next few days.”
In a blog post, Google also verified that Files now has more than 100 million monthly customers worldwide. The app appears to release 8 GB of room on devices worldwide every second. Files also helps remove more than 300 duplicate files and 150 memes per second.
