Even though Google doesn’t like external SD Cards on its Nexus devices, it doesn’t mean that it has dropped the support for them. Even though latest Nexus phones do not have slots for SD Cards, Google allows those phones with actual SD Card slots to take full advantage of them.
Have you ever run out of space on your Android device when installing games or recording high quality videos? Well, if your phone has a small internal storage you have probably faced the “Low storage’ warning at least once. Luckily, if your phone runs on Android 6.0 Marshmallow and has an SD Card slot, you can easily expand the storage.
Android 6.0 Marshmallow offers the option to use your preferred SD Card as internal storage. This means that the phone will treat the SD Card the same way as its own storage. This option allows you to install games and record videos directly to the SD Card without worrying about low storage. Here’s how to do it on Android 6.0 Marshmallow.
How to use SD Card as internal storage on Android 6.0 Marshmallow
- Take your phone and make sure you are running the latest version of Marshmallow.
- Now go to Settings. Scroll down until you find Storage. Tap on it.
- There, find your SD Card and select it. Open the menu and select Format As Internal.
- A new menu will appear. Choose Erase & Format.
- Wait for a couple of seconds and reboot your phone.
Now your SD Card will be formated and will be used as an internal storage on your Marshmallow Android.
