Google Rebrands Files Go as Files by Google

Anyway, given its success-the app is used by over 30 million users each month-Google is rebranding Files Go to Files by Google.

The feature was announced as part of Android's In-App Updates API, which Google said is now being tested and will launch to developers soon. Google has introduced new tools and features at Android Developer Summit. Well, despite the announcement, there's no exact time given by Google as to when we will see the API working on Android devices.

According to the example provided by Google, the first one - called "immediate in-app update" - will also have an on-screen pop up, letting you know that an update is available. You can completely customise the update flow so it feels like part of your app. The former doesn't boot you out per se, but the update window takes up the entire screen, so you're essentially prevented from using the app while the update occurs.

What Cuthbertson is referring to is the In-App Updates API, which gives developers two new ways to update their apps: immediate and flexible.

Meanwhile, the developer can ensure that they have done everything that they can to ensure that users have the most up to date version because the app can be pushed to install in the background using the automatic updates feature. Mahbod also said Google will expand the In-App Updates API to its Early Access Program "very soon". Now, in keeping with its view of the future for the Next Billion Users (Google's capitalization), the app has a new UI as well as a new name. Even Google has increased the limit of Instant Apps to 10 MB for Try Now button on the Play Store.
