I got a new phone today. It's a moto g power 2021. I'm trying to transfer some apps to my SD card. When I go to storage, settings, SD card the three vertical dots aren't there to format the ad card as an internal option. Is there another way to move apps to my SD card?

Some devices don’t allow to move apps to SD card. It sounds like this may be the reason it does not give you the option. The good thing is that you can still move media like pictures, videos, songs, etc.

Thanks for your response. I tried going into the apps. I went to permissions and gave storage permission to apps that offered it. It seems to have moved the apps to my SD card. It worked out in a round about way. In the past I went into storage and cache to move apps to my external storage.
