Quick tip: See how Chrome for Android can work as a file manager

It’s funny, we use use stuff without knowing the many hidden function they have. Take for instance, one of our favorite Android browsers, Google Chrome. Earlier this year, we discovered an interestingly addictive dinosaur game on it. Now, here’s another discovery.
Google Chrome browser for Android devices could actually work as a mini file manager. How does this work? Its simple:


Go to the address bar and type file:///sdcard/ and send it. It immediately open your memory card, then from there you can browse through and see your files. I was able to view picture files and play music. Clicking on apk files actually installed them :-). Every other file refused to work. The video file I tried just hanged the browser.

You can try this on your phone, and show off to your friends. Tell them you saw it on MobilityArena.com 😉
