How to move applications to the SD card on the Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus

How to move applications to the SD card on the Galaxy S9

Moving applications to the micro SD card allows us to save space in the internal storage of our devices. Although the usual 32 or 64 GB are the norm today, the capacities of external storage have in turn expanded. If we want to keep the internal storage as light as possible, it is best to move applications and other documents. In the case of the Galaxy S9 the process varies compared to the Galaxy S8, but we detail how to get it. This same tutorial will be applied to mobile phones from the Korean firm that enjoy Android Oreo.

Step 1: find the application you want to move

First of all is to decide and find the application that you want to move from the internal storage to the micro SD card. The most sensible thing would be to move the heaviest app you can find. Once you decide, open the Settings and go to Applications. There select the application you want to move.

Step 2: access advanced storage settings

Once you are in the application Settings, access Storage and click on Change. Choose Micro SD:

Step 3: let the mobile work

The last step once you have selected SD card is to click on Move on the next screen and let the phone work as it pleases. Once the progress reaches 100%, the application will have been moved. The waiting time will vary depending on the application and your weight.

Final notes on moving apps to the SD card on the Galaxy S9 (and other Android phones)

As you have already seen, moving applications to the SD card in the Galaxy S9 is quite a simple process. In the event that you lack space in the internal storage, it is an option that always comes in handy to have on hand to lighten the weight. Keep in mind, however, that not all applications support being moved to the micro SD card, and some even leave some data in the internal memory when they do so. This depends on how it works Android, so there is no solution in this regard.
