Receiving morning greeting can surely lift up your mood and make you happy, but is surely not proving to be good for your phone's health.

These streams of morning greetings pouring in your handset on a daily basis can cause your phones to slow down over time.

 According to a recent research by Google, one in three smartphone users in India run out of space on their phones daily, due to the "Good Morning” messages received from people.

The glitch was an overabundance of sun-dappled flowers, adorable toddlers, birds and sunsets sent along with a cheery message.

Indians are like nothing better than to begin the day by sending greetings from their phones. Starting before sunrise and reaching a crescendo before 8 a.m., internet newbies post millions of good-morning images to friends, family and strangers.

All that good cheer is driving a 10-fold increase in the number of Google searches for “Good Morning images” over the past five years.

It saw a ninefold increase over the past year in the number of people in India downloading such pictures.

However, this number is pretty high when you compare it with the US, where one in ten users face the low-storage issue on their phones. 

But, there is nothing to fear as the search engine has also provided a solution for it. You can download Google's Files Go application and can easily get rid of irrelevant messages and content within seconds. 

Google uses artificial intelligence tools to programme the application which helps prompt users to delete unnecessary content.

According to a report by Google, with this app, it has managed to clear up more than 1 gigabyte of data per user.
