For several months, android had a serious bug, which caused a pre-installed application on the system consume mobile storage indistinctly, reaching the 20 GB occupied. Worst of all, said app did not allow delete your data it also did not give the option to be uninstalled.
The problem has been reported by a large number of users and portals like Android Central they echoed it.
Now, months later, Google has finally fixed the bug that it was exhausting the internal storage of users’ devices around the world…although it didn’t even warn about it.
The latest Android beta fixes the storage issue.
Known to some users as “ghost storage”, the bug was caused by the “Phone and Messaging Storage” app built into the system of some Android devices. As of August last year, reports indicate that the app was taking up too much storage space at the terminals.
For months, some of the affected users have shared their comments with Google. However, it was not until February of this year that the bug has been corrected by Google engineers. The patch that ends the error was finally implemented with the Android 12 QPR3 beta 3. The final version of this edition of Android should be released in early June, along with the monthly Android update corresponding to this period.
However, Google has not detailed the bug fix in the update’s official changelog, so as noted on Android Centralit’s not easy to determine if the error has been fixed except by contacting Google directly.
Anyway, the problem that affected a significant number of Android users in the summer of 2021 has finally been fixedand the fix is expected to roll out to all devices over the next few weeks.
