Uninstall applications on Android

If you have an Android mobile device you have definitely downloaded some (or many) apps. Apps can help us do almost everything from our devices, and many times we have too many apps downloaded, which leads to our Smartphone or Tablet start to work slowly or have failures. That is why we must eliminate apps we do not use. So now we will show you how to uninstall apps on Android easily and quickly.

Uninstalling apps is something quite simple that will not take more than 1 minute. In many cases we download a lot of apps and forget about them, and although our device has a lot of storage space, it can always be a problem to have so many unused apps. Let's discover now how to uninstall apps that we are not using.

How to uninstall user apps?

To start we must know what user apps are. We know as user apps all those tools that we can download from the Google Play Store and that are not installed in the device by default. In this category you will find all social media apps, games, and much more.

Uninstalling these applications is easy and can be done in different ways. On Android devices with operating system 8.0 onwards you just have to touch the app icon inside the menu for a few seconds and a bubble will appear. In this bubble you will see the uninstall option. Just tap the option and the app will be uninstalled.

Another very simple option will be to touch the icon of the app you want to uninstall and drag it to the bottom of the screen. When you do this you will see that the option to remove app appears. However, this way of removing apps may not work with all devices, and it depends a lot on the brand of the device and the model.

Remove apps from Google Play Store

If you want to delete more than one app, you can do something easier than deleting them one by one. To do this you can enter the Google Play Store from your device and open the menu that appears on the left side. In the first option you will see “my games and apps”, tap the option and you will see a list of all the apps you have installed. Next to each app you will see the uninstall option. So you can uninstall several apps at the same time.

How to remove apps that are installed by default

Android devices bring many apps installed by default, and each of them takes up space on the device that we could use for other things. The bad news is that these apps cannot be deleted because it could affect the operation of our Smartphone or Tablet. But if we can disable them to free up some space.

For this we must follow the same instructions as to uninstall an app. Touch the app icon for a few seconds and a bubble with options will appear. In this case you will see the option “deactivate”, tap on it and the app will disappear from your home menu, although it will still be installed on the device.

From the settings of your Android you can also uninstall or deactivate apps, in addition to cleaning the cache of your apps and much more. Now that you know how to uninstall apps on Android you can free up space on your device very easily.
