Google has recently rolled out an update for its popular Google Photos app, introducing an innovative storage management tool aimed at simplifying photo and video organization. With the latest software version 188.8.131.520998655, users can now optimize their storage usage more efficiently. The update size is 23.79 MB, which brings a host of exciting features to enhance the user experience.
One of the key highlights of this update is the introduction of a new storage management tool. Designed to aid users in managing their storage quota more effectively, this tool identifies and suggests potential deletions, such as blurry photos, screenshots, and large videos. By surfacing these files, users can effortlessly decide which items to remove from their Google Photos library, freeing up valuable space without compromising on the memories that truly matter.
As smartphones have become indispensable for capturing countless moments, the volume of photos and videos stored in Google Photos has grown exponentially. Recognizing the need to balance storage limitations with user convenience, Google’s latest update addresses this challenge head-on. With the storage management tool, users can easily identify and delete redundant or less important files, allowing them to make the most of their allocated storage quota.
Efficiency and ease-of-use have always been at the forefront of Google’s app development, and this update further solidifies their commitment to providing an optimal user experience. The new tool not only simplifies storage management but also promotes a clutter-free library, ensuring that users can easily locate and enjoy their most cherished memories.
Google continues to refine its suite of applications, consistently rolling out updates that cater to user needs. The release of the storage management tool reflects Google’s dedication to improving Google Photos, enhancing its functionality, and adapting to the evolving expectations of its vast user base.
To benefit from this latest update, users can simply download the new version of the Google Photos app from their respective app stores. Once installed, the storage management tool can be accessed through the app’s intuitive interface, offering a seamless user experience.

Netflix Co-CEO Rules Out App for Apple Vision Pro for Now
Recently, pre-orders for the Apple Vision Pro were started. According to Ming-Chi Kuo, an analyst has reported sales of around 160,000 to 180,000 units of the Vision Pro. In context to the sales of Apple Vision Pro, Netflix Co-CEO Greg Peters revealed in an interview that there is no need for the Netflix app in Apple’s VR headset.
In that interview, Peters also defined that the number of subscribers can’t justify the attempts to port an app for a platform. In the future, there may be a Netflix app for Apple’s VR headset, but currently, Netflix is adopting a wait-and-see approach. For now, YouTube and Spotify have no plans for dedicated apps.
As we also mentioned in the recent post of the Apple Vision Pro, you can use the apps via the browser in the Vision Pro. Apple’s own Apple TV+ streaming services are available on the Apple Vision Pro, which features “Apple Immersive Video” with Spatial Audio and 180° 3D footage in 8K resolution.
Similarly, Netflix has also a VR app which was launched in back 2015, that also offers VR Content and includes a 360° video for the Stranger Things Series, but for now, it’s not available in Apple Vision Pro. Netflix has a ton of VR movies that you can also check out.

The latest WhatsApp beta test for iOS, marked as version 22.214.171.124, is also geared up to incorporate this polling feature.
WhatsApp ensures that the choices made by channel followers during voting remain secure and anonymous. Currently available to beta testers, the feature to share polls in channels can be accessed by installing the latest version of WhatsApp beta for iOS and other Android phones via the TestFlight app. It will be available to everyone in the coming days.
While polls on various platforms often disappear within 24 hours, it remains to be seen whether WhatsApp will adopt a similar approach or introduce its own unique twist.
