    You won't be able to use the card on other devices. You'd need to format it if you want to use it anywhere else.

    Watch this as well:

    So, searched the web for that & seems like 'format as internal storage' option is not available in my mobile as it's Android 7.0 Nougat. I haven't updated it for a while..
    I went in Settings>About Phone>common> Update center to check & my Nougat version is still Android 7.0. Will updating it to android 7.1.2 help me enable 'format as internal storage'?

    It should be there on the notification after you've inserted that memory card.

    From what I am aware of (by surfing about this), it's not available in Android 7.0 Nougat but I'll remove my SD card & insert it again

    Yes, I've checked that.
    This is an issue with Android 7 from what I got from searching online.

    AFAIK Adoptable storage option is disabled/hidden in Stock ROMs, as the manufacturers provide more inbuilt storage so as to increase the mobile's performance (read & write) - instead of depending on SD card which comes with a dip.

    Most of the custom ROMs provide this option for formatting SD as Internal or External. So, if you're OK with custom ROM, you can give it a try.

    Don't use SD card as internal memory coz the SD card speed is not as good as internal memory.
    Use it as external storage for backup.
