Manage stored files

The Files page provides an overview of the files contained in your Firebase Storage. This can be helpful for visualizing the structure of your Storage instance to verify that your application is working or if you need a convenient way to store just a few files like static images or video content for your application. From this page you can view detailed file information, upload and download files, create folders, and create new download URLs for files. For more information on using Firebase Storage in your app, see the Firebase developer documentation.
