The podcast app stores all podcasts onto the phone storage. Is there any way to save them to SD card? I don't see any option to change this setting.

    Have you tried to change default place of saved items? Settings->Memory - there you will find default place for various types of files. The is a chance that the app uses the place defined in settings. – Romasz Nov 4 '16 at 8:04
  • Yes, I have already checked on the podcasts settings page as well as Settings > System > Storage page. The Podcast app itself is installed on the phone's memory and cannot be moved to SD card, therefore I assume it will not let me save the podcasts also on the SD card. I don't see such option. – Aamir Nov 11 '16 at 3:48
  • Can you check if the files you have downloaded via the app, appear in Music or other public folder? – Romasz Nov 11 '16 at 10:14
  • They appear in Music folder. – Aamir Nov 13 '16 at 2:36
  • Have you checked where are the new downloaded files placed or the old ones, after changing Settings > System > Storage? Generally after changes, the app should download new files to SD. – Romasz Nov 13 '16 at 9:08

The newest updates let me choose SD card as default storage for music. This way all the podcasts now get saved to the SD card.

  • Seems more like a comment. Try to post it as a comment. Or have details of OS build and please have screenshots also. – User5 Jan 11 '17 at 16:39
  • Adding to what Aamir said, you can get to those settings, by going to: Settings App -> System -> Storage, and then change Music (shown as a note symbol) from "This device" to "SD Card", hope this helps. – SKRILLIT_ Mar 17 '17 at 16:38
