The Google Play Store is getting two new useful features

Google is preparing some new features for the Play Store. For example, you will soon be able to archive unused Android apps to save storage space.

1. Download progress bubble

First of all, there is the “Show installation progress balloon” feature, which 9to5Google Find out in the App Store install file. Once you enable this feature in the Play Store notification settings, you will see the app installation progress in a floating balloon. You can drag this balloon to any part of your screen.

2. Archive unused Android apps

Archiving apps is a Google thing earlier this year Advertise Android. Archiving is primarily intended for phones with little storage space. The Android app can then be deleted, but all personal data for that app will be preserved. This archive feature has now been spotted on the Play Store.

Once the feature is here, you can easily reinstall an archived app by clicking on the “Restore” button instead of “Install” in the Play Store. You will then end up on a private page as shown in the right screenshot. Logging in to your account again is not necessary, because everything is restored from the archive.
