Is it possible to move Apps from internal storage to external storage? All my previous phones you could transfer apps via settings however with the new A21s it's not giving me the option to move to sd card for any of my apps which were moveable on previous phone.
Thanks

This is for moving files not Apps.

That's brilliant! Thank you. I have just received my new A21s today and could not work out how to move anything to the SD card. I had downloaded just one photo, from my Google Photos in the cloud and have now moved it to the SD card, so thanks again.

Major disappointment on this OS limitation. Guess I should have done a better job researching before buying the A21s...I guess I'll try to get on with without the feature and 32gb, but will probably return the phone to Amazon before the return window closes.

You can move apps, files, images, and videos from your internal storage to an SD card using the Samsung Smart Switch app. You can also use this app to transfer files to different devices.

hi @Speedy82 

 

remember, not all apps can be moved to SD cards, example of these are Google, Facebook, etc... this is because the app itself does not let it to

 

to move an app:

 

Settings → Apps → tap the desired app → Storage → Move/Save to SD card

--------------------

 

for managing files, we can use Files by Google app so we can swing any files back and forth to SD card/internal storage

 

gratsz 😀

I know how to move apps from internal storage to sd card.
The problem is it is not possible to transfer any app whatsoever on the A21 to SD card, not one single app as Samsung has made it that way, same as tab a7 10.4. all my other Samsung devices are capable of moving apps.
