Since mid-May, Google has been testing a new feature that solves the problem smartphone users usually have with space on their devices.

Running out of room on your smartphone is a problem many mobile consumers have today, thanks to sizable photos, videos, and music libraries saved on their devices.

In helping to manage space, this new feature will suggest which apps could be uninstalled to make room for a new download.

When a user tries to download an app they don’t have enough space for, a new screen will pop up suggesting apps they could uninstall to free up space.

It also links to “Settings > Storage” where you can delete unneeded media files. Unfortunately, it doesn’t suggest uploading files to the cloud – like via Google Drive or Google Photos, for example – as a means of freeing up space.

Google has not yet determined when it will roll out the app to users globally, reliable sources tell us.

Google have also declined to offer an official comment on the feature.
