Remote Uninstall for Google Play Store Might Finally Be Here

One of the biggest complaints that people tend to have about Android has to do with the Google Play Store, more specifically with how difficult it can be to uninstall an app once you no longer need it. It turns out that the Google Play Store is attempting to change all of that. The recent v38.3 update was supposed to bring remote uninstall for apps to the table at long last, but in spite of the fact that this is the case, consumers were baffled when the promised update didn’t deliver.

With all of that having been said and now out of the way, it is important to note that the feature might not be receiving a wider rollout, and it will make it considerably easier to uninstall apps on your phone than might have been the case otherwise. Doing so can be important because of the fact that this is the sort of thing that could potentially end up allowing you to free up a considerable amount of space, and according to some disassembled code courtesy of TheSPAndroid, you can uninstall devices from across your Android ecosystem through a single device.

The way this will work is that users will be able to go into the Play Store, tap on their profile image and then enter the app and device management settings. In the manage tab, users can select whichever device they want to target and reveal a list of apps said device contains. Once this is done, it will simply be a matter of selecting whichever apps the user wants to get rid of and giving the delete icon in the upper right corner a tap.

Another great aspect of this feature that bears mentioning is that it provides sorting capabilities, mainly by size. If the goal is to free up space on any given device, users can do this by arranging the apps from largest to smallest and seeing which of the larger ones are no longer necessary. It is quite common for apps to accumulate on a device after years of usage, and many of them end up being forgotten. Thanks to this new update, users will be less likely to run out of space, and in the event that they do, freeing some up will no longer be an exercise in frustration as well as futility.
