Adding an SD to your Android device is useful to help free up valuable space. It’s a shame that not all apps allow you to move them to the SD card, but Telegram does allow you to change the storage location to help you save as much storage space as possible. By default, it uses your device’s storage, but with a few taps here and there, you can make it use your SD card instead.
Telegram: How to Change the Storage Location
Telegram can use your SD card as a storage location, but it’s off by default. But that doesn’t mean that you can’t turn it on. To use your SD card as the storage location for Telegram, tap on the three-lined menu, and go to Settings.
Go to Data and Storage.
In the Disk and network usage section, tap on the Storage Path option.
If this is your first time making the change, keep in mind that your SD card might not appear with its name. In this case, simply tap on the option that is not selected. From that moment on, Telegram will start to save cache in the SD card instead of your device’s internal storage.
If you use Telegram a lot and share a lot of files, changing the storage location is really going to make a difference. You’ll notice how you’ll have more free space, and your device’s performance will improve as well.
There is always something you can do to try and save storage space on your Android device. Trying to use as little internal storage is a neverending battle, but there is always something you can do. How do you try to save storage space on Telegram? Share your thoughts in the comments below.
