 Google Photos logo

Manage Google Photos Storage

First, open the Google Photos app on your iPhone, iPad, or Android phone or tablet. Tap your profile icon in the top-right corner.

Select “Account Storage” from the menu.

Select "Account Storage."

Depending on your device, you might have an extra step of tapping “Manage Storage” before proceeding.

Tap "Manage Storage" if you see it.

On the next screen, you’ll see a graphic that shows how much storage space you’re using. It will even estimate how long it will take you to fill it up.

How much storage you're using.

Underneath that is a section titled “Review and Delete.” This is where you can maximize your storage space by cleaning things up. Select one of the categories, such as “Screenshots.”

Select one of the categories under "Review and Delete."

From here, you can tap and hold to select multiple photos and videos to move to trash.

Select media to move to trash.

When you’re done selecting, tap the trash can icon in the top-right corner.

Confirm that you wish to delete the selected photos and videos by selecting the “Move to Trash” button.

Tap "Move to Trash."

That’s all there is to it! If you find yourself running into Google’s storage limits a lot, but you don’t want to shell out for Google One, this is a nice method for making sure that you’re not needlessly wasting space. Make the most of your Google Photos storage!
