Normally, the storage space on your phone contains 3 parts: internal storage, phone storage and external storage. And generally the applications are saved in the internal or phone storage when you install them. This is also why the storage shortage problem comes- the internal storage is limited but all the files and applications are stored here. Hence, to free up your phone, you can move these data to an external storage like SD card, SIM card or other driver. But normally users would like to choose the SD card since it is convenient. After installing the WeChat in SD card, you can use it on the device as usual but the phone space will increase. Then how to achieve this goal? Just go with the following steps to have a try first.
