One of the most common problem most of us face on Android devices is the less storage space. Installing high graphic content games or recording high-quality videos would definitely occupy more space on your internal storage. If your device is running on Android Marshmallow, then you are lucky enough to use SD card as internal storage on your Marshmallow device.
Thanks to Google for continuing its SD card support for other devices. As we know Google doesn’t like having external SD cards on its Nexus devices, but it is kind enough that it did not discontinue for other devices. So, let’s take full advantage of these SD card slots on our devices and use it as internal storage.
Well, Android 6.0 Marshmallow offers an option to use SD card as internal storage. Once you enable this option, your device will treat your SD card as internal storage. Enabling this option will allow you to install high-end games and also to record high definition videos on a SD card.
