Among other additions is ‘Storage Sense’ which is a feature in the Windows Phone 8.1 update which lets you manage storing of data on your phone. This option appears in the list of accessible settings below ‘Update and Recovery’.

The users who are using Windows 8.1 on their Windows phone already, are very much aware of this feature.
