Android File Transfer 1.0.12 is now available for download. This is the third update of this file transfer tool for Mac users in all these years, previous one was v1.0.11. As usual, Google has failed to include an official changelog. However, in our quick tests with it, it seems Google has finally got around to fixing the compatibility issues with Google Pixel phones — atleast with the Pixel 3 XL and Pixel 4.
This latest release doesn’t bring any new features. You can still use Android File Transfer only to transfer files, delete them or move around between different folders. You can also access and do the same on a SD card, if your phone supports it.
Like previously mentioned, no changelog has been released by Google. From what we have found so far, Android team has improved compatibility with newer devices running Android 9 Pie.
The latest release seems to have fixed the problems with Google Pixel phones. We just tested Android File Transfer 1.0.12 on macOS Mojave 10.14.5 / macOS Catalina 10.15.3 and connected our Pixel 3 XL / Pixel 4 XL on Android 10 – it worked perfect!
Android File Transfer is in serious need of a UI upgrade. I really hoped this update would bring some new features or interface changes, but everything is still the same. May be, just may be, Google might bring the Material Design UI to Android File Transfer in an update later. For a better UI and features, you should try out HandShaker!
