Google Photos app may soon allow you to set a custom timeline for permanently deleting items from the trash

According to the code found in the latest version of the Google Photos app for Android (version 6.79.0.624777117), the app may soon allow you to customize the duration that deleted photos remain in the trash.

This would be a useful feature if you want to be able to clear storage space to store more photos.

The code string, discovered by code sleuth AssembleDebug (via PiunikaWeb), suggests that users may be able to set a custom timeline for how long items stay in the trash before being permanently deleted.

This feature is not currently available to the public, but it indicates that Google plans to give users more control over their photos in the trash.

Currently, when you delete a photo or video from the Google Photos app, it is moved to the trash. The photos and videos remain there for 60 days before being permanently deleted, but they still count towards your storage space until then.

This could be a handy feature if you accidentally delete something and want to recover it later. However, it could also be frustrating if you have limited storage space and want to delete photos permanently to make room for more.

This feature is still under development, and there is no news on when or if it will be available to the public. It’s difficult to predict features from dismantled APKs, however, the fact that Google is at least working on it suggests that the company is listening to user feedback and looking for ways to improve the Google Photos app experience.
