How to Clear App Data and Cache on Android M

Google’s Android M preview release may look a lot similar to Lollipop on the visual front, but the M preview brings along a lot of changes to enhance user experience. 

Take the App info page for example, it has been completely rearranged with much clear interface and added features on M preview. The Clear App Data and App Cache options are both now grouped into the Storage, which you can access from the App Info page.


  1. Open Settings on your device » select Apps.
  2. You’ll see a list of all the apps installed on your device, select the App for which you want to clear data and cache from this list.
  3. You’ll get to the App info page, select Storage here.
  4. Now tap the Clear Data and Clear Cache buttons to delect app data and app cache for the selected app.
