Android M will change the way you manage your smartphone's internal memory

Truth be told, Android features a somewhat rustic internal storage manager that is poorly accessed by regular operating system users. Aware of this, Google plans changes in this department as well, and some of them can already be seen in the preview of Android M.

Accessing the option Settings> Storage> Miscellaneous To see the services that consume a lot of internal memory on Android, we come across an interface worthy of the early years of DOS. You can only select and delete general directories, you cannot enter them and view individual files.

androidservice1 "sizes =" (max-width: 806px) calc (100vw - 24px), (max-width: 995px) 782px, (max-width: 1216px) calc (2 * (100vw - 30px) / 3) + 15px - 24px), 782px "src =" "srcset =" androidmar storage1-w782.jpg 782w, 596w, jpg 450w, 336w, 300w "class = "lazyload" />
The "Miscellaneous" section (right on Lollipop) has become "Other Files" (left on Android M). / ANDROIDPIT
<p>With Android M, the "Miscellaneous" section has been renamed "Other Files". Its interface has been redesigned, giving it the look of a modern file manager. In it we have two visualization possibilities (list and grid), and the directories can be sorted by name, date modified and size. In addition, by clicking on a folder you can open it and view individual files.</p>

In addition, Android M allows you to freely select files, copy and paste them. The change in memory manager interface and functionality in conjunction with the change in device external memory handling (see link article below) represents two of the best new features of the next version of Android.
