Google is bringing a storage manager to Chrome OS

Chrome-OS-storage

Chrome OS is getting its own storage manager that will help users understand what’s taking up their precious storage space. The feature will be even more useful now that Android apps are on the way.

With the new storage manager, you will be able to see what kind of content is hogging your internal flash space. It will display the full capacity of the drive, how much is in use and what’s using it, and how much is currently available.

This will help you establish whether you have any large files you may have forgotten about that are taking up too much space. It will also help you manage your Android apps in the future as you decide whether those large games are worth keeping.

Android app support and Google Play are still only available on a small number of Chromebooks for now, but later this year, they will rollout to all supported machines.

If you want to try out the storage manager now before it officially makes its debut, you’ll need to download the latest Chrome OS developer update, then enable the feature using a special flag. Follow the source link below for instructions.
