Files by Google is an Android app originally created for users in the emerging market to clean, browse, and share files on phones with low storage and limited internet data. We have since reached 150 million monthly active users worldwide! Files is made by the Next Billion Users team for users who are new to smartphones. Their diverse cultures, income levels, and literacy shape how they perceive Google products and technology as a whole. More information.
I am currently a Product Designer on Files. I am part of a team of 5 designers (+ writer, researchers, and artists) who work on new product features based on field research in India, monthly user feedback, and app performance data. We collaborate cross-functionally with product management and engineers to create one of Google’s most highly rated products.
