We heard about this awesome feature at the end of last year, but many people don’t realize it’s available to them or how to use it. This ad for Google Photos: Free Up Space tool was released last week and highlights those important moments -graduations, birthdays, etc- that get lost when your phone is out of space. Now, you can delete all the copies of photos stored on your device that have already been stored to the cloud!
It’s a useful feature and you can pair it with unlimited storage if you choose the high quality backup option with Google Photos. We tried it out so you can see how it works, check out our walk through and the commercial.
Open the Menu in Google Photos
If you haven’t already backed up your most recent photos, connect to Wi-fi and give everything time to sync before you get started.
Open your settings
Free Up Space!
You’re done! You now have more storage so you’ll never miss another moment. When you’re connected to the internet, you’ll still be able to view your photos through the Google Photos app.
