How To Check RAM Usage In Android 2019?

Most of us are aware of RAM (Random Access Memory), a volatile memory that is used in every device or system by both the OS and applications.

Android users prefer to clear caches when their internal storage is small or see their RAM space sooner. For recent releases of Android versions, these two features have been dropped.

Here we will discuss the methods by which you can test the use of RAM

  • Using Developer options
  • Using memory widget

  • In the Build number option and tap it seven times until you receive a notification saying, You are now a developer!.
  • You will now find a new option with the name Developer options ({ }) once you navigate back to System settings.Click on it.
  • In the screen displayed,click on the memory option to view memory usage.
