Android File Transfer 1.0.11 – Changes
For some reason, Google hasn’t released an accompanying change-list for this Android File Transfer update. The only prominent change we find is that the compatibility has been moved up to start from macOS 10.7. Further, we are hoping that this utility is designed to work well with Android Oreo devices and below. For Android 9.0 Pie, we should be expecting a new release quite soon.
