I have a Galaxy Tab A 8" 2019. The issue i am having is that i cannot move a single app to  my sd card. The funny thing is that I have a Samsung phone and am able to move a lot of the  apps to its sd card. Now before you  ask, when I select any app that I want to move on my tablet, there is no option to change the storage location at all. No matter what I app I choose  I can't move it. I can move photos and videos, but no apps. See attached  screen shot.  As you  can see,  there is no choice for move. This particular game i also have on my Samsung phone which I was able to move to my sd card. Any suggestions? Screenshot_20201006-163258_Settings.jpg

I have the same model tablet. How can I store data on the SD card? I don't see any options for that anywhere. When I installed the SD card it made over 70 folders, but the only thing in any of them is more empty folders. 5.5MB of empty folders. There is not one actual file in any folder I have checked.

The only things I've figured out how to do is to set the camera to save to the SD card (I'm not going to be taking pictures with my tablet) and to manually move files such as screenshots or downloads. What's the point of even having an SD card?

The user manual is nearly useless also, as it seems to be out of date.

Why did they bother giving us an SD card. Never heard of tablet that the SD card is useless. I'm very disappointed

I have a Samsung J6+ phone with Android 10 and can move apps to the SD card. It is not an Android 10 situation

The ability to move and run apps from the SD cars has been removed from the Android OS. You can still store the data on the SD card, but apps will no longer run from there.

This means that I will not buy the Samsung Galaxy Tab A7 64GB tablet. So Samsung have lost my custom for that model. I am also reviewing my decision to buy the 32GB version. Very short-sighted of the company to remove this option.

Then what is the point of having a sd card if I can't move apps over

You might wanna re-think asking for this to be checked as a "solution." Unless, of course, you re-word it to read "for Samsung" to be more accurate.

My Samsung Tab A w/Android 10 has has this feature so it does NOT appear to be an Android issue.

I would have bought the tablet with more storage if I had known. This is an extreme disappointment.
