Which Android version supports exFat, if at all? The web seems unclear about that. Thanks!

    I assume your real question is "Since which Android version is exFat supported?" - only this way it makes sense. – Robert Nov 28 '16 at 18:51

It seems that, according to here, It's been supported since KitKat (whether using apps or not) But (as always) it's down to The OEM's discretion if a device can Run it. Chances are, If a device supports SD cards bigger than 32Gb, It supports SDXC, which has a exFAT filesystem (First Graph here)

  • That makes sense, also the OEM's omission of support if a device does not have an SD card reader. – Lorenz Lo Sauer Nov 29 '16 at 10:23

    I have found my Pixel in 2018 on Android 8.1 does not support exFat. – jonallard Aug 20 '18 at 22:45
