Free Up Your Phone Space and Share Files Offline with Google’s Files Go

Files Go is Google’s newest storage manager that helps you free up space on your phone, find files faster and you have the ability to share them easily offline with others.

The new app basically frees up your storage space on your mobile device. Google says, “Since its launch in December, more than 10 million people have installed it and have cleaned up more than 1.1 gigabytes of space on average.”

The tech giant has recently added three 3 new features to Files Go which means managing files will now be is even faster and more enjoyable:

  • SD cards: Now their SD card support has been expanded since many users use SD cards to backup important files. With one tap in the list or grid view, you can easily filter to see files stored on your SD card.
  • Tablets: Files Go now runs on tablets so users can manage storage and transfer files between  small and big screen Android devices without using any data.
  • Opening files in other apps: You can also customize which apps open your files with their new “Open with” flow. This should give you greater flexibility and control when handling all types of files. For example, to open PDF files, you may want to use your favorite PDF viewing app and that’s now possible.

With these new features, Google hopes it’s even easier to free up space, find files faster and share files offline with Files Go.

Other features of the app is ones ability to get helpful suggestions of files to erase before you run out space. Files Go recommendations get smarter the more you use the app.

Again, Files Go’s offline file sharing is secured with WPA2 encryption, providing more secure file transfer. And the app “takes less than 6MB of storage on your phone, there’s no malware or bloatware to affect your phone’s performance.” according to Google.

Womenpreneur Digital Hub to Promote Digital Skills & More for MENA Women

Womenpreneur Digital Hub

The Entrepreneurship Academy of the SANAD Fund for MSME and Womenpreneur Initiative have once again teamed up to champion women’s economic equality in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA). In March 2021, the partners launched the Womenpreneur Digital Hub, an online knowledge and resource-sharing platform that aims to expand women’s access to skills-building tools in a time when lockdowns and economic contraction have disproportionately impacted female employment in the region.

The coronavirus crisis has forced many women out of the workplace through a constellation of factors: Economically, it has taken a particularly heavy toll on sectors where women are overrepresented, such as retail, care, and food service. School and daycare closures have added further pressure, with many households placing the responsibility for at-home schooling and childcare solely upon women. As a result, although women in MENA comprise only a quarter of the region’s total workforce, they account for over half of COVID-related job losses.

The Womenpreneur Digital Hub aims to help women regain their economic footing through a three-fold approach. First, online training will be offered free of charge for hub members to hone skills that empower them on the job market, such as financial knowledge, digital literacy, and business management. High-profile speakers will provide insights into current industry trends and tips on accessing career opportunities. Second, the hub will connect users for mutual information and support, experience exchange, and valuable network-building. In this way, the platform intends to accelerate the third factor, which is to open up potential employment paths for those whose careers have been upended by the crisis.

Ines Ebrecht, Chairperson of the SANAD Technical Assistance Facility which runs the SANAD Entrepreneurship Academy, said: “Women’s employment is not only a social justice issue, it is also an economic one. Women’s ability to participate in the workforce not only provides them with financial stability and freedom on an individual level, it also enables an economy to fully open the tap on creativity, entrepreneurship, productivity, and income generation. The SANAD Entrepreneurship Academy is glad to once again join with Womenpreneur Initiative to advance gender parity as a key to prosperity in the Middle East and North Africa.”

Womenpreneur CEO and founder Sana Afouaiz said: “The pandemic provoked a major setback in gender equality and threatens to walk back decades of progress. Yet we can also pivot to grasp the opportunities. As the world entered into lockdown, the transition to online work has created a growing demand for digital jobs. The Womenpreneur Digital Hub is targeted toward equipping women to future-proof their skills and give them valuable knowledge for the employment market. Our aim is to ensure that every woman and girl in MENA has access to the tools that will help her realize her full economic potential.”
