Smartphones have become all-in-one devices for a lot people, serving as a media player, camera, gaming machine, and more. Because of that, storage space can be at a premium, and sometimes you might have to delete unused content to free up space for new stuff. Now Google will help you with that task.
Google has added a feature to the Play Store on Android that will help you select apps to delete when you’re trying to install new ones but you’re short on storage space. As you can see in the screenshot below, the tool will tell you how much storage space you need for your new app and it’ll display several apps that you can uninstall — complete with their size — in order to make room.
Details on the rollout of this feature are still up in the air. Google hasn’t actually announced it, and some folks still aren’t seeing it on their devices. Here’s to hoping that it does roll out widely soon, though, because it can come in handy for folks with devices that have limited storage. Sure, you can always delete apps on your own by going into the Settings app, but this uninstall tool will help you by popping up apps and their sizes so that you can quickly make room for a new app that you want to install.
