Google is testing 'My subscriptions' and 'Free up space' features in Play Store
- Google is testing a new “Free up space” feature, which lets you install your least frequently used apps all at once.
- Google might also bring a new tab called “Subscriptions.” Any apps, TV shows, and magazines you’ve subscribed to will show up in one place.
Google might bring a faster and more convenient way to not only remove unused apps but also see all your subscriptions in one place.
According to 9to5Google, the search giant may bring changes to how users can remove unneeded apps on devices that are running out of space. Similar to what it’s doing on Google Photos and Files Go, Google might soon display a prominent sign that reads, “You’re running low on storage. Free up space.” If you’re running out of room on your Android device, simply go to “My apps & games,” and if you have the latest version of the Play Store, you should see an option to free up your device. The best part is that this app-uninstall feature gives you a list of apps to get rid of, sorted in frequency of use.

That’s not all that Google is testing in the Play Store. As Android Police reports, some users are seeing a brand-new “Subscriptions” tab right under “My apps & games.” If you’ve subscribed to apps, TV shows, or magazines through the Play Store, they’ll be neatly displayed in one place now. At least theoretically. Unfortunately, it seems as though only a limited number of users have access to this tab in the Play Store at the moment.
