    Default Relocating Apps to SD Card

    Hi everyone, I'm relatively new to Android so I apologize if this a rhetorical question.

    I'm trying to find out if there is a way I can move a few apps, specifically Google Play Music to the SD card in order to free up space on my phone.
    From what I've found so far the only was is through rooting which i'd rather avoid. Is there a workaround or alternative to keep the music data on the SD card ?

    Thanks for your help,

    Christian

    Welcome to the forums and Android!
    With Google Music, I don't think you can place the music on your SD card. I may be wrong though. If you have a lot of music, I would suggest to pick say, 50 or 100 songs you really like and keep only those on your device.

    Thanks for the information, it seems you're right, without rooting the device, i'm pretty much stuck with the current location.
