Genshin Impact has introduced a special feature with the 1.5 update that allows players to remove unnecessary voice-over files to better utilize the disk space available on their device.

Multiple players have previously requested miHoYo to implement this feature in Genshin Impact. This feature is a massive boon for Genshin Impact players on devices with limited storage facilities.

According to the official statement posted by miHoYo, the entire process involved in uninstalling all the unnecessary voice-over languages in Genshin Impact is fairly simple. Players can do the same from the Language tab inside the in-game Settings menu.

However, before players can remove voice-over files that are not needed, they will have to update all voice-over files to match update 1.5.

Removing extra voice-over files for specific language from Genshin Impact

Players need to note that they can only remove unnecessary voice-over files after updating all the voice-over files since the release of the 1.5 updates. Once players update all the voice-over files present in Genshin Impact, they will remove specific language files that are not required.

Methods involved in removing unnecessary voice-over files from Genshin Impact include:

  • Players will first need to open the in-game Settings menu and head over to the Language section.
  • Inside the Language section, players will need to select the "Manage Voice-Over Files" option.
  • After this, players can easily select and remove all voice-over files for the specific languages in Genshin Impact.

Following these three simple steps will allow players to remove all unnecessary voice-over files from Genshin Impact and further free up disk space on their devices.

Having said that, miHoYo has also confirmed further optimization features for voice-over files for future updates. The official statement from miHoYo reads,

"We will continue to optimize related features of the voice-over files in subsequent versions."

With that said, it is safe to say that Genshin Impact has a long way to go when it comes to in-game optimization and quality of life improvements.

What comes as a relief to the community is that miHoYo is continuously working to provide all these additional features that will massively enhance the player experience in Genshin Impact.
