Samsung tab a7(2020) apps to sd

Is there no ability to save apps to SD card? Every android device I have can do this but cannot find an option to do this in this tablet.

Hi, I am facing same problem because 19 GB internal memory is to low to load all the apps.

Re: Samsung tab a7(2020) apps to sd

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

@bikeyewrx I appreciate the input, that is exactly what i have done on all my other android devices and tablets, unforenately there is no option to save to sd. When you select storage it under apps it only gives you the storage data(size,cahe) and option to clear cahe or unistall. You can format sd but it still reads it as an sd card. I really do like this device but it does not allow for very simple things such as sd app saves and multiple windows. It looks like samsung did this purposely to not cannabilize its more expensive tablet sales. I think this will be a popular tablet and hoping that it will have a strong developer community. I will likely head to XDA to find a more useable build that still uses the ONE UI.

Hate to tell you but with these new Droid OS even on some phones you cannot transfer to the sd card making it useless. LG has the same issue on some phones and it did on my Note 10 until I received the update.

This does not work on the A7 10.4.  It's starting to remind me why I have not purchased a Samsung product in several years. <edit>. I already put a lot of time and effort into getting this thing set up. Not sure if I can return it at this point, but I guess I'll try.

This isn't an option on a single app I've got. Seems the device just doesn't support moving apps to SD. Massive disappointment, no valid reason for it and it hugely limits the usability of the device.

There is no "Storage" option in "Settings" except for the "Storage" under "Device care." When you select the "SD card" option there's no hamburger menu. The "Advanced" option only allows you to "Format" but not to "Format as internal." Really sad. This new tab is going back to the store for one that's a true Android.
