Save applications on the sd AX2 card

Buenas. 

Tengo un xperia ax2 y no tiene la opción de pasar las aplicaciones de la memoria interna del teléfono a la tarjeta SD, esto hace que sus 32 gigas de almacenamiento interno se queden un poco cortos.

¿Se contempla alguna actualización con esta función? 

Good.

I have an xperia ax2 and does not have the option to pass the applications from the internal memory of the phone to the SD card, this makes its 32 gigs of internal storage are a bit short.

Is any update contemplated with this function?

Re: Save applications on the sd AX2 card

Hello everyone!

 

In regards to why this feature is no longer available, please see the information below.

 

Google stopped providing the possibility to move apps to an SD card to secure the security and the privacy in Android 6. This feature was removed from Android, but we continued to support it further for some time. However, we decided not to keep our solution to move apps to an SD card for users security and privacy.

I hope that answers your question!

Re: Sony xperia xa2 apps to SD card

Hi @Miqnna, welcome to our forum!

Your question has been translated to English as this is an International forum.

On the Xperia XA2 you can not move applications to the SD card as @Jetzu mentioned, however some application can still store data on the SD card, for example certain podcast and music applications, so if you are using applications that store this data on the internal storage, check in the settings for the application and see if there is an option to move and save the data directly on the SD card.

You can always move photos, videos and locally stored music files to the SD card if you go to Settings > Storage > Transfer data to SD card.

I hope that helps!

Re: Save applications on the sd AX2 card

Hi @fca000, welcome to our forum!

Your question has been translated to English as this is an International forum.

As you wrote, the Xperia XA2 does not have the feature which allows you to transfer certain applications to an SD card, you can however save photos, videos and locally stored music on the device to the SD card.

Some applications can also save data to the SD card, for example offline play lists, pod casts and so forth.

I'll make sure to forward your feedback regarding this internally.

I hope that helps!

Hi @Laurenttruchet, welcome to our forum!

I have translated your question to English as this is an International forum.

The Xperia XA2 does not support moving applications to the SD card, however some applications can save, for example, offline play lists and so forth to the SD card, but this is entirely up to the developer of the application.

I hope that answers your question! Slightly smiling Face

Re: Save applications on the sd AX2 card

Hi @Highfive27, welcome to our forum!

If you take a look at my previous post in this thread, I have explained that the Xperia XA2 does not support moving applications to an SD card. You can however save data from those applications that support it on the SD card.

I hope that helps and have a nice weekend!
