Files by Google, the file management, and the cleanup app has grown stronger and better over the time by receiving some valuable features. Just two months back, it received the Safe Folder option so that you can save your private files and lock them using a passcode. Now, the app is receiving one more interesting feature to ease the use of its built-in video player.
Sometimes when cleaning up the space using Files by Google app, we often like to check the videos before. This is to know if that video needs deletion or not. Interestingly, the Files by Google has a built-in video player that lets you play videos in the app itself without asking you to leave and open in a different app. Over time, this video player has received some upgrades, including the ability to adjust the video playback speed. Now, the same video player is receiving one more treatment from Google.
As reported to AndroidPolice by one of its readers, the Files by Google’s video player gets swiping gestures so that you can easily adjust the brightness and volume of the video you are playing. This is similar to what MX Player offers, with just a swipe on each side of the screen, you can control the aforementioned things.
On Files by Google, the right side controls volume and the left one lets you adjust the brightness. Just glides on either side up and down to adjust the brightness and audio output. It is great to see that a cleanup app has such an enriched video player built within. It is better if the same function comes to Google Photos as well. Currently, swiping up in the Google Photos opens a menu full of options.
If you want to check out this new feature, simply update the Files by Google app and try it. Once updated, when you start playing any video and adjust the volume using the volume rocker, the app will suggest you use gesture feature rather (as shown in the screenshot above).
