This option wasnt available to me. However, after rebooting my new tab I was able to go into specific applications and switch the storage location to the SD card. It worked for Netflix, Amazon Prime Video and Spotify. This option was not offered within the app for Xfinity Stream, HBO Max or Peacock. Hopefully more developers will bring this feature online in the future.
That doesn't work with the 10 inch 2020 tab A7.
if you open "Settings", scroll down to "Apps", tap the app you'd like to move, then under the specific app options tap "Storage" and under "Storage used" tap "change" , it gives you the option to move the app to an SD card if you have one installed.
There are exceptions. If the app is preloaded or somehow registered to your Google or Samsung account , they don't allow you to move most of those apps. It's hit and miss but you can move some and of course it's a pain to move every app individually.
You can also go into "Settings" and "Storage" and select your SD card and tap the hamburger menu, and select "Settings" and "Format as internal", then "Erase and Format". your SD card will then be read as internal storage
this is kinda dumb, there's no reason why they should prevent you from using that SD CARD SLOT to put your apps on,... should be up to the cosumer... my niece got this for christmas, it's a decent tablet, but what puts me off is not allowed you to use your SD card properly... theres no reason why samsung should stop this!
you can transfer photos and video to it, click my files images , hold down on image ,
the option move appears at the bottom of the screen , select the sd card on then select a folder
on it. works for video also
What I have read is that the apps stay on the internal storage. Some apps will allow you to change their data storage to the SD card.
I had already formatted my SD card on the tablet. When I opened the Camera app, it prompted me to select internal or external (SD) storage.
Next was Netflix. It did not prompt on open or when I downloaded a movie. I deleted the download and went into app's settings (in netflix itself). From there I was able to switch the download location to SD.
Looks like they made the apps handle to data location instead of the app manager.
