Google will keep on storing your location and other histories on its environment. However, with this new feature, users can auto-delete the collected data from Google. There will be more simplified options to select the time period for this feature. Users can choose from three months to 18 months to auto-delete their data from Google.
With this new feature, you will have more options to deal with Google. You can manually delete your collected data from Google’s Settings option, or you can set up this new auto-delete feature with specific time-period. You can also stop Google from tracking your data by enabling their Tracking feature. You can explore all these useful features from the Settings menu of the app.
