Google’s Files app recently gained the ability to hide sensitive files with a secure folder. The software giant is now working to help you group your important files with the new ‘Favorites’ folder. Mishal Rahman of XDA managed to enable this feature in Google Files version 1.0.325710463.
Reportedly, you will be able to add files to the Favorites folder with the ‘Add to Favorites’ option in the overflow menu. Like the Secure folder, the Upcoming Favorites folder will be present in the Archive section of the app. If you have never used Google files, the archive section is present on the home page (browse) of the app.
In fact, having a favorite folder will work for many users. You can basically bookmark important files for faster use. For example, if you are a student, you can add your academic schedule, important notes for quick revision, and more in this folder. You can also use this folder to quickly access local copies of your important documents, as these files are usually lost among other files unless you put them in attempts to classify them into a separate folder.
All along, keep in mind that Google has not yet enabled the feature for everyone. Since this feature is almost ready, we can expect Google to add the feature to the next Google File Beta. If everything happens according to plan, the Favorites folder will make its way to a stable version in future updates.
