Any way to have photos automatically delete from phone after automatically saving to Google Photos?

I've searched the internet but can't seem to find an answer to this, though I have seen it mentioned.

What I'd like to do is: Take a picture with my Samsung S7, have it automatically upload to Google Photos, THEN, have it AUTOMATICALLY deleted from S7 (but not Google Photos).

Is this possible?

I can do the first part -- take the picture and have it automatically upload to Google Photos. But I can't figure out how to have it immediately and AUTOMATICALLY deleted from the S7.

Thanks for any input on this.

Welcome to Android Central! I'm not aware of a native automated way to use the Free Up Space option. You could try something like Tasker or IFTTT.
