Google Photos is rolling out a series of changes, including one that will help users free up space.

Announced on Google+, the first two changes are rolling out on Android starting on Tuesday and include a "Free Up Space" button on the Settings screen that will prompt the user to bulk-delete copies of photos already backed up from their device.
