Running out of space on your phone is the worst. You’re stuck constantly deleting apps, music, and pictures, just to make room for one more photo or video. Today, we’re making it easy to free up space on your phone, anytime you need. Just tap “Free up space” in Settings, and Google Photos will remove device copies of your backed up photos and videos.
Or Google Photos can keep track of your phone’s storage space for you. Get notified when your phone is running low on space, and easily remove the device copies of backed up photos older than 30 days right from the Assistant.
Your photos and videos will still be accessible when you're online. The update is rolling out now on Android and coming soon to iOS.
You can download Google Photos from the App Store for free.
