Chrome OS file manager allows users to access Android files

Chrome OS

Thanks to a lot of updates and changes Android apps now works quite well on Chrome OS. However, there was still one issue that needs some attention and a solution to the problem. This issue was the file management of the OS by Google. While the OS allowed users to access the Downloads folder from Android apps, its File app was not able to see Android file system. However, finally, this is now changing.

According to an announcement by Francois Beaufort, Chrome writer at Google, “an Android files menu option for the Chrome OS Files app is in development”. He also confirmed that it is currently available for users to try it. Users can easily try the Files app by enabling the new #show android files in the files app. However, according to some reports, it is currently available is in the development of Chrome OS channels only.

This new change will be very useful and beneficial to those users who like to run media players on Chrome OS. This will also allow users to easily run productivity apps or any other Android exclusive app on the OS. This will be not a major addition to ARC on the OS. But it is something that users have been complaining about a lot on various Chrome OS forums. So it is good to see the feature finally getting included.
