If you are running low on storage space on your device, transferring your games to an SD card can be a great solution. In this tutorial, we will guide you through the process of transferring your games to an SD card.

What You Will Need:

  • An Android device with an SD card slot
  • An SD card with enough free space to accommodate your games

Step 1: Insert Your SD Card

The first step is to insert your SD card into your device’s SD card slot. Make sure that the card is properly inserted and recognized by your device before proceeding.

Step 2: Format Your SD Card

Before you can transfer any files to your SD card, you need to format it. To do this, go to Settings > Storage > Format SD Card. This will erase all data on the card, so make sure you have backed up any important files before formatting.

Step 3: Move Your Games

To move your games to the SD card, follow these steps:

  1. Go to Settings > Apps & notifications.
  2. Select the game you want to move.
  3. Select Storage.
  4. Select Change Storage Location.
  5. Select “SD Card” as the new storage location and click “Move”


Some apps may not have the option to move them to the SD Card due to their developer settings.

Step 4: Verify Your Games are on The SD Card

Once you have moved your games over, verify that they are present in their new location by following these steps:

  1. Go back into Settings > Storage
  2. Select your SD Card.
  3. You should find your games under the “Games” section on the card.


Not all games will be able to move to the SD Card due to their developer settings.


Transferring your games to an SD card can be an easy way to free up space on your device. By following these four simple steps, you can save space and continue enjoying your favorite games.
