Saving media direct to phone/tablet sd card

I'm a relatively new owner of a hero 8, and had put off purchasing a go pro as dealing with storage issues, and now running the app on a new android tablet with 512Gb SD card . Was hoping that now they would have been able to load go pro media direct to sd storage.Is there a way to make that happen?

Tnks,

Re: Saving media direct to phone/tablet sd card

Unfortunately, no. You must first save to the app (on your local storage) and then save to device. From there you can move it to any drive you want. The engineers have acknowledged knowing that the feature you want is highly requested, but due to the many functions that the app serves and to maintain stability and efficiency, they are unable to incorporate that feature into the app at this time.

Re: Saving media direct to phone/tablet sd card

This is something the user community has been asking for a long time and we have been relaying this to the Product Team. We are looking at ways to improve this however it's a complex task and a big chunk project competing with lots of others.
