Gmail space is full? Delete data from Gmail in this way to free up space!
Gmail is one of the most used email services worldwide. Almost every email user has used Google's popular email service at least once because it facilitates access to other services such as YouTube, Docs, and other services offered by the tech giant. It's also hard to deny that most of us have thousands of emails in our Gmail accounts that eat up a huge chunk of the free space Google offers. For those who are unaware, Google offers 15GB of free cloud storage for all of its services. Although emails don't take up that much space, thousands of emails collectively can consume a good amount of space. Once the free Google storage is full, you'll either have to pay to buy additional storage or you'll have to delete your content to make up for free space.
Deleting emails can be a very daunting task especially when there are thousands of emails. But Google provides some features which can help you to delete your email easily. The tech giant also offers an auto-delete feature that automatically deletes emails as per user-defined filters. If you haven't enabled the auto-delete feature, you can follow the method below to get rid of your old emails.
How to Delete Old Emails on Gmail
Gmail comes with a search box that allows users to search specific emails. You can also use the search box to find and delete old emails. To do so, type a name or email address in the search box and select the 'All' tab at the top. This will select all the emails related to your search query. To delete these emails, tap on the delete icon.
