Is there any way to run "free up space" automatically or at certain intervals, like a cron job?

I use one of my phones as a dashcam in my car, which writes the videos to the photo library, which are then backed up by Google Photos to Google Drive. I periodically need to open the phone and "free up space". Could this be done automatically?

    You can simply use busybox crond or some app like Tasker. Is your device rooted? On what basis you delete files? Aging? If you are comfortable with command line, rclone can do both for you; online backup and deletion of local file. It also supports encryption, if you don't trust Google :) – Irfan Latif Mar 31 '19 at 6:27
