Chrome OS Files App Slated for Linux and Android Centric Improvements
With Android app support already there and Linux support on its way, Chrome OS has a platform is evolving quickly. That evolution means that how we view and use our Chromebook has to change too, particularly the Files app. A new commit and a new flag in the Chrome OS Dev Channel gives us a solid clue as to where the file management app built into the platform is heading.
The commit points to there being a revamp of the Files app to allow for four distinct sections: My Drive (Google Drive and Team Drive if you have a G Suite account), Linux files, Android Files, and File System Providers like Microsoft’s OneDrive or Dropbox.
