#Google is now sending out an update to #GooglePhotos on #Android allowing users to free up space on their devices. This feature will be visible in the Settings once the update has gone live and will prompt you to delete images and videos on your phone that have already been backed up to the cloud.
If users are storing images in ‘Original Quality’ (uncompressed), Google Photos will prompt them to delete device copies when the storage starts running out. Another feature that is being introduced with this update is the ability to delete photos on some devices with SD cards enabled. This cannot actually be considered a new feature as it’s been long overdue.
Google Photos web users will now find the way to switch from ‘Original Quality’ photos to ‘High Quality’ photos. As you know, Original Quality images take up space from your Google Drive storage, while High Quality photos don’t take up space as Google offers unlimited storage for those images and videos.
The update should be live from the Play Store right away, but if it isn’t, make sure you head over to the app manually from your device and check for an update. You can check out all the new changes that Google is introducing in this dedicated Google+ page here.
