When we get a new smartphone, we think we can store everything on it. However, as the months passed, we notice that the storage capacity of our Android phone decreases to the point where we are unable to save any files transmitted via WhatsApp.
Before the issue becomes unpleasant, your phone begins to demand more space. As a result, in this note, we’ll show you how to free up space on your phone without having to rely on third-party apps that claim to clean up your Android but just deceive users.
How to Make Space on Your Android Phone
The steps we’ll show you were completed on a smartphone running Android 12. The method for your device should be the same or comparable; if it isn’t, you’ll need to make a minor tweak. Pay close attention to the steps that follow.
To clean your Android, go to Settings on your phone. Go to Storage from there. Click “Free up space” in this section.
There are many different types of files that you can clean there. Some are garbage, such as screenshots, really huge files, downloaded files, and items backed up to your Google Drive account.
Tap “Clean up” to get rid of trash files. For the remaining files, simply hit “Select files” and then select the ones you wish to remove.
After you’ve selected all of the files, tap “Move” files to the trash to finish. On the “Cleanup suggestions” screen, look over the other alternatives. You should have recovered a large portion of your Android’s storage after completing these.
You can free up a lot of space on your Android phone by following these simple steps. There is no need to hire a technician or spend money on third-party software.
What is Android?
Android is a touchscreen mobile operating system for devices such as smartphones and tablets. Furthermore, it is a Google-developed system based on the Linux kernel and other open-source software that promises to simplify the use of a large number of applications.
It was created by Android Inc, which was eventually purchased by Google in 2005 and released two years later, in 2007, as part of the development of open mobile standards. The Android Open Source Project (AOSP) is the name given to the primary Android source code, and it is the most extensively used mobile operating system in the world.
