Google Will Soon Let Android User Archive Apps Instead Of Deleting Them
What this means is that instead of the app completely being deleted off your phone, you will be able to just archive them. According to Google, this method will help you save 60% of app storage, which we know isn’t 100% and might not necessarily be enough for some users, but for those who still have storage to spare, this could be an alternative.
According to Google, “Archiving is a new functionality that will allow users to reclaim ~60% of app storage temporarily by removing parts of the app rather than uninstalling it completely. An archived app will remain on the device and can easily be restored to the latest available compatible version, whilst preserving the user data.”
