Is your smartphone’s storage space at capacity? Do not fear; freeing up some space on your smartphone does not take long. Companies often ship devices with 64GB or 128GB of storage, which quickly fills up due to the increased use of applications in recent years. Below are some of the tips for you to free up your phone storage
Delete huge files all at once
Use your smartphone to look for Google Files as it is pre-installed almost on every device. When you first open it, you will see that the applications have tags on the top, such as Images, Audio, Videos, and more. When you tap on “Large Files”, the app will display all of the huge files you have on your phone. After which, you can choose which files you want to delete.
WhatsApp Storage Manager should be used.
WhatsApp is one of the most widely used applications in India, with millions of Indians using it to send and receive messages and photographs. People receive a lot of undesirable photographs or videos on WhatsApp, which are kept in the Gallery app on their phones. You may utilise the messaging app’s storage manager to erase images or other material rapidly. Navigate to Settings > Storage and data > Manage Storage after opening the app. A part of files greater than 5MB will be found here. You may press it to erase all of your unwanted files, images, and movies in one go.
App cache should be cleared.
Finally, if you require additional storage space, you may erase the Cache of the apps. It is important to note that we are referring to Cache rather than user data. So, do not make the mistake of wiping the app’s data by using the Clear Storage button. Clearing the Cache for applications is safe. To clear the Cache, go to the Settings area of your phone > Apps > press on any app > tap on Storage> Clear Cache.
Use Cloud services to free up space
The Google Photos app, which comes pre-installed on every smartphone, may be used to backup all your data on the cloud. You may simply erase all of the photographs from your phone’s Gallery app if you currently use this cloud storage service to back up your data. But first, check the Google Photos app on any other device to verify if everything is backed up; otherwise, your data will be lost.
