Google has introduced a new feature to Android 10 that allows the system to save data locally when it uninstalls the app. Previously, uninstalling an app on Android would also delete all data related to it. For example, when you uninstall a game app, all saved data, character profiles, and so on are deleted, unless it’s synchronized with Google Play Games.
Now Google is gradually changing that approach, allowing developers in Android 10 to choose to save data in local storage. When you start uninstall from the home screen or the Settings menu, a dialog box pops up to see if you save the data, and when you reinstall the app, you’ll be able to recover the previously saved data.
Not all Android 10 apps support this feature
Currently, only a few apps support this feature, such as WhatsApp and ASR Voice Recorder, support this feature. Because this is a new feature, some aspects are not yet mature, and it will take some time for developers to use it. This is definitely a good thing for handball players, as many games rely entirely on locally stored application data to store player information.
In addition, for example, the pop-up information above will only appear if the app list action in the App Drawer or Sets menu is uninstalled, and a prompt will not be triggered if the application is uninstalled directly from the Play Store. Although this feature currently supports fewer applications, we will be able to see more applications supported in the future.
