When you first get your Android TV, Storage is one of the last things you worry about. Since you recently got it, it has enough storage (for now) for the apps you want to install. But it’s an excellent idea to check how much storage apps take up on Android TV so you know where the limit is. Keep reading to see the easy steps on your Motorola Android TV to check how much storage the apps use and how you can uninstall the ones that use too much space.
How to Check App Storage Space for Motorola Android TV
Once your Android TV is on, click the Home button on your remote. Use the arrows to select the cogwheel that’ll take you to Settings. In Settings, go to Device Preferences, followed by Storage. The only option there will be Internal share storage; before you select it, it’ll show you the total space the apps have taken up.
By selecting Internal Shared Storage, the storage space will be divided into different sections such as:
- Photos and Videos
- Cached data
Click the Apps option to see what apps are taking up that amount of storage. You should see a list of all the installed apps. At first, you’ll only see the first five installed apps, but to view all of them, select the See all apps option.
Below the name of the installed app, you’ll see the amount of storage the app is taking up. Now you can browse through the installed apps and review their storage space. If you feel an app uses too much storage space, read the following section to uninstall the app from your Android TV.
