It's very easy to run out of phone storage these days. Most of your phone storage is used up by the photos you take. We've came up with two ways in which you can restore some of your phone storage to your device using Google Photos

Step 1:

You'll have to choose what quality photos you want to upload and then you have to choose to enable the sync and backup feature.

If you don’t want to run out of space in Google Photos, choose the “High Quality” feature which will give you unlimited storage. After tapping continue, enable the automatic sync and backup. You'll have the option between Wi-Fi only, or cellular data when Wi-Fi is unavailable. If you usually running out of data, it might be best to stick with Wi-Fi.

Step 2:

Once you have those features enabled the app should begin to automatically back up your photos. You can see the progress by tapping on the three lined icon on the top left of the app screen and tapping “Assistant.”

Once your photos are all backed up to Google Photos, you can disable the photo backup if you want to. if you choose to do this, be absolutely sure that all of your photos are backed up before proceeding.
