One more SD card question

So I've installed google play on my older generation fire table and also installed a sd card. When dowloading apps from google play I started getting prompts that I had insufficient space and had to delete some apps. Thought this was odd since there was plenty of space on memory card and settings were set to download to memory card. So I tried to download an app from amazon and got no prompts concerning insufficient space. Apparently amazon apps are set to download directly to memory card while google play is set to download to internal memory. Is there a way to get google play to dowload apps directly to sd card?

Google Play is Not suppose to work on Fires. So moving them to the SDCard Automaticly rarely works. I Suggest You More the Amazon apps to the Sdcard where they will work & Free up space on the main HD

i have both fire and pure android tablets. google apps always install to internal storage, even on my samsung. if there is an override I have yet to find it
I can move most installed apps to Sd card one at a time, via settings, but every time an app updates it returns to intenal. Annoying because i constantly have to space manage the 16Gb internal on my samsubg - keep moving news apps, deleting crhome cahce....

amazon is different - there is a global install to setting in fire OS 5.6 but it only applies to apps from the amazon store and it is glitchy, according to many amazon forum discussions
Many amazon apps are years out of date or broken. Ebay , notoriously, also flipboard, CNN, BBC news, weather, sport... and probably lots of others that I don't myself use.
