In addition to downloading content from Google Play, you can download files from Gmail messages or a variety of other sources. Use the Downloads app to view, reopen, or delete what youve downloaded in this way.

Some mobile networks restrict the size of the files you can download, to manage the demands on their networks or to help you avoid unexpected charges. When you try to download an oversized- file when connected to such networks, you may be required to delay downloading until your device is connected to a Wi-Fi network, when the download will resume automatically. You can view and manage these queued files in the Downloads app as well.

  • Check items you want to delete. Then touch the Trash icon.
  • At the bottom of the screen, touch Sort by size or Sort by date to switch back and forth.
  • Files available in the Download app can also be viewed in the Download directory thats visible when your tablet is connected to a computer. You can view and copy files from this directory.
