Every time you download a file like mp3, apk, document, mp4 (other movie file extensions), and lots of other file on your android phone using your Google Chrome, it will be saved by default in your internal storage or phone storage. If your storage is already full, then, you need to add or expand your storage by inserting a memory card or SD card.

For this post, I will show you how to change the default download location of your Chrome in your android phone. But make sure you already have an SD card to be able to do this. Because you can't change to another download location if there is only one storage available. If you do not have it yet, then, you can borrow one from your friend or buy online or to the nearest mobile & computer store near you.

Assuming that you have it in you, then, follow the tutorial below.

Here are the steps on how to change download location in Chrome on your android

1. Open your Google Chrome app.
