File manager coming to Windows Phone 8.1 in June, will be called Files

The official Windows Phone UserVoice is a great place to get your feedback heard by Microsoft. Today the company has done some spring cleaning and flagged a lot of requests as ‘completed’. One of the most requested feature was a file system of some sort. Earlier this month, Microsoft shared that an official file manager would be coming to Windows Phone 8.1 this month. It looks like that date has been pushed back a month.

The Windows Phone team has been cleaning up the UserVoice thread and marking as complete. The request for a file manager to come to Windows Phone has been marked completed. An admin on the boards also informs us that the file manager app for Windows Phone will be launching in June and will just be called ‘Files’.

Files will be coming to Windows Phone sometime in June. We can’t wait and we know a lot of you can’t either. Keep your eyes peeled.
